AMPLITUDE RATIO

Statistics Directorate    
French Equivalent: Rapport d'amplitude

Definition:
Some time series exhibit seasonal movements which are regular in phase but vary in amplitude from year to year. The actual amplitude in any year, expressed as a proportion of the average amplitude taken over a long period is called the amplitude ratio. It affords a measure of departure from normal seasonal variation.
