Changeover in seasonal adjustment to X13 JDemetra+

Starting in 2018, short-term statistics in industry have been seasonally adjusted using the method X13 in JDemetra+.

The software JDemetra+ is recommended for seasonal adjustment of official statistics within the EU. The mathematical-statistical method X13 does not entail a fundamental change from the method so far applied (X-12-ARIMA).
