X-13-Graph is a program developed at the Census Bureau to provide graphical diagnostics for the Bureau's X-13ARIMA-SEATS seasonal adjustment program. The original program was developed as a SAS Macro program; there also a Java implementation of the software.

X-13-Graph allows the user to:

  • Select from 20 types of graphs;
  • Compare different X-13ARIMA-SEATS (or X-12-ARIMA) adjustments;
  • Choose options for the graphs, such as starting and ending dates, scale, and colors;
  • Save the graphs in a variety of formats.

Our goal in creating X-13-Graph was to provide specific types of time series graphs in a package that would be easy for everyone to use. The original version of X-13-Graph is programmed with the SAS® System but requires no previous SAS experience from the user.

Documentation and examples for the X-13-Graph program are also available, as well as documentation for the X-13-Graph Batch Windows Interface.

X-13-Graph Java Version 2.1 is an implementation of the X-13-Graph software in Java. X-13-Graph Java generates graphics from the output of X-13ARIMA-SEATS. It does not require SAS, and has almost all of the functionality of X-13-Graph.

Persons with visual difficulties who have trouble using this application should call 301-763-7426 for assistance.

More information and links to download X-13-Graph Java are available on this site, as well as documentation and examples for the X-13-Graph Java program.

Changes from the previous version

X-13-Graph Batch 2.1 follows X-13-Graph Batch Version 2.0. It contains all the same graphs and options as that program, except for a change to the year over year graphs, which now have an option for a different color scheme.

In addition, there is a change to the .NET framework used for the program, and this is a 64-bit compiled version of the code (rather than 32-bit done previously).
