Version 1.1 of X-13ARIMA-SEATS (Build 9) is now available from the
U. S. Census Bureau. This release introduces some new features to
the X-13ARIMA-SEATS software, along with corrections to some minor
A description of the new features of this release appear below:
The version of SEATS used by the program has been updated to
Build 663 of SEATS.
Allows users to specify AO and LS sequence regressors that
will add AO or LS regressors for each observation in a
span of data (AOSyyyy.pp-yyyy.pp and
Allows users to specify a critical value for T-statistic
for including AO or LS sequence regressors in the final
regARIMA model (tlimit = 2.0).
If this argument is specified,
only AO or LS regressors from the sequence that has a
t-value greater than this limit in absolute value will
be included in the regARIMA model.
Adds a pair of quadratic ramp variables that allows the effect
to change quadratically rather than linearly. The user can
choose between a quadratic ramp where the rate of change
increases as time goes on (QIyyyy.pp-yyyy.pp) or
decreases as time goes on (QDyyyy.pp-yyyy.pp).
Allows users to specify a probablility level for an optional
critical values for AIC tests of trading day, Easter, and
user-defined regressors (pvaictest = 0.05).
A -x runtime option for the Accessible output version of
X-13ARIMA-SEATS that produces XHTML output.
A new diagnostic for determining whether a series is seasonal,
the QS diagnostic from TRAMO, is included in the spectrum
spec and can be used with quarterly series.
The HTML output of the accessible version of the program
has been updated.
Some defects have been corrected, including a defect in the
irregular regression module.
For the vast majority of series, this version of X-13ARIMA-SEATS will
produce X-11 seasonal adjustments that are identical to those generated
by Version 1.0 of X-13ARIMA-SEATS released earlier.
