Differences Between .gmt and .gls Graph Codes

While most of the element codes used to request the graphs in the graph list (.gls) file are the same as the graphics code used by X-12-ARIMA in the .gmt file, there are a few exceptions. These are

  • The options xtd and rtd (for X-11 Trading Day and Regression Trading Day) are both shortened to td. These abbreviations allow you to graph trading day components for any series without having to specify whether it is from the x11regression spec or the regression spec.
  • The options xhol and rhol (for X-11 Holiday and Regression Holiday) are both shortened to hol. These abbreviations allow you to graph holiday components for any series without having to specify whether it is from the x11regression spec or the regression spec.
  • The option cmpori and oadcmp (for the Composite Series and the Outlier-Adjusted Composite Series) are shortened to ori and oadori, respectively. These abbreviations allow you to graph the composite series in the same run with its components.
  • The options for the outlier t value graph are named for the type of outlier even though the file that contains the values is labeled as fts.
  • The options spcori, spcsa, spcrsd, and spcirr must be used to request spectrum graphs for the original series, seasonally adjusted series, residuals, or irregular, though the graphics code in the .gmt file may be different depending on the X-12-ARIMA version. The option spcosa requests an overlay graph of the spectrum plots of the original and seasonally adjusted series; this option is not in the graphics metafile (.gmt file).
  • The option sirsi from the SI Ratios for Two Adjustment graphs requests an overlay graph of the si ratios with replaced extreme values; this is not a graphics code used in the .gmt file.
  • Additional differences might exist in the overlay and component graphs, due to different versions of X-12-ARIMA using different graphics codes in the graphics metafile. Use the element as it is specified in the tables in Sections 4.1 and 4.3.
