 The X11 Procedure

## Example 21.1: Component Estimation - Monthly Data

This example computes and plots the final estimates of the individual components for a monthly series. In the first plot, Output 21.1.1 an overlaid plot of the original and seasonally adjusted data is produced. The trend in the data is more evident in the seasonally adjusted data than in the original data. This trend is even more clear in Output 21.1.3, the plot of Table D12, the trend cycle. Note that both the seasonal factors and the irregular factors vary around 100, while the trend cycle and the seasonally adjusted data are in the scale of the original data.

From Output 21.1.2 the seasonal component appears to be slowly increasing, while no apparent pattern exists for the irregular series in Output 21.1.4.
