Welcome to this eLearning module that is meant for beginners on Seasonal Adjustment. The users may follow this course from three different points of view: the Conceptual framework, the ESS (European Statistical System) Guidelines built up to harmonize the European practices, and Demetra+, a software tool in line with the Guidelines. Following the provided links it is also possible to mix the three approaches allowing for an integrated perspective.
The Conceptual framework describes the concepts at an introductory level - without entering into the details and complexities - while the ESS Guidelines and the Demetra+ parts provide advices and practical recommendations.
The course presents many interactive charts and step-by-step animations to help understanding the different topics. There are also some progress tests for the users to assess their knowledge.
We hope you enjoy this eLearning experience!
