New seasonal adjustment software adopted

Starting from the January 2016 data, a new seasonal adjustment software J-Demetra+ will be adopted in the Labour Force Survey. The software change does not affect the used seasonal adjustment method. The change does not influence the interpretation or use of the time series either. You can read more about the implementation of the new seasonal adjustment software in Statistics Finland's press release.

In connection with the adoption of the new seasonal adjustment software, the seasonal adjustment models of the time series are also updated. Due to the updating of the models, the trend series may change. However, in most cases these changes are minor.
