SEASONAL ADJUSTMENTS




SUPPRESION OF BASIC STRUCTURAL STATISTICS TABLE



FOR FURTHER DETAILS

New seasonal adjustments by OECD are generally carried out once a year, when the December figure is available. Revisions to individual series due to new seasonal adjustments by national source or by OECD are not signalled in this note.



The Basic structural statistics table presented in Part 4 of this publication will be suppressed in the October 2006 Main Economic Indicators. Users are referred to the OECD Factbook () which contains a much wider range of comparable structural indicators across OECD member countries, Brazil, China, India, the Russian Federation and South Africa.




Detailed methodological information, updated in real time, is available at
