Win X-13 & X-13-Data

Win X-13

Win X-13 is a Windows interface for the X-13ARIMA-SEATS program.

This interface will:

  • Create the input files necessary for seasonally adjusting a series with X-13ARIMA-SEATS.
  • Run X-13ARIMA-SEATS and display the output files.
  • Create a data table with model information and diagnostics from series run in X-13ARIMA-SEATS.
  • Create graphs from X-13ARIMA-SEATS output.

This site contains distribution files and installation instructions for Version 2.2 of Win X-13, officially released in July 2013. Documentation for the program is also available.

New features of Version 2.2 of Win X-13 include:

  • a reorganized diagnostics spreadsheet, with new diagnostics added;
  • a reorganized View File window, with comment/uncomment buttons added.

Version 2.2 of Win X-13:

  • creates Java graphs with Java 7 (though Java 6 still works);
  • resolves a problem with opening output when the program is run from a shared drive.

Win X-13 was designed to run X-13ARIMA-SEATS and X-12-ARIMA Version 0.3. Not all features will work if using previous versions of X-12-ARIMA. Win X-13 does not support the HTML converter used to convert output files to HTML in the X-12-ARIMA program.

If you wish to run Version 0.3 of X-12-ARIMA, you may also wish to consider using the latest version of the Win X-12 program. If you are using an earlier version of X-12-ARIMA, such as Version 0.2.10, we strongly urge you to upgrade to Version 0.3. If for some reason you cannot upgrade, contact the person listed under Support below.
