Seasonal adjustment
Current account time series are seasonally adjusted by OECD using the X13-ARIMA method. The procedure is indirect, that is the component credits and debits series are adjusted individually and the totals and balances are then derived by summing the components. The procedure also uses an option which ensures that the seasonally adjusted quarterly figures sum to the corresponding unadjusted annual data.
