The Government Statistics Section and Washington Statistical Society are sponsoring the Seasonal Adjustment Practitioners Workshop (SAPW 2016) taking place November 4 at the Bureau of Labor Statistics in Washington, DC. There is no cost to attend, but attendees must register at Eventbrite.

This workshop will provide an opportunity for those who work with official statistics and seasonal adjustment to present interesting issues, problems, and applied research to a knowledgeable audience. There will be a plenary session in the morning with four speakers and a discussant, followed by contributed sessions in the afternoon.

The organizers are soliciting abstracts for presentations of interest to practitioners of seasonal adjustment. The abstracts should be fewer than 100 words in length for a presentation of about 15–20 minutes. Possible topics include the following:

  • Seasonal adjustment methodology (model-based seasonal adjustment, high-frequency data, etc.)
  • Issues in seasonal adjustment production (residual seasonality, revisions policy, etc.)
  • Calendar effect estimation and adjustments (trading and working day, moving holidays)
  • Seasonal adjustment software
  • Seasonal adjustment diagnostics

Papers may cover any subject relating to seasonal adjustment methodology or the process of seasonally adjusting series at a statistical agency. Send your abstract of 100 or fewer words to esmd.seasonal.workshop@census.gov by August 15.

Even if you do not plan to present a paper, register for the conference and join the conversation. SAPW 2016 is organized by the U.S. Census Bureau and Bureau of Labor Statistics.
