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.

Distribution files and installation instructions for Version 3.0 of Win X-13, officially released in June 2020, can be found below. Documentation for the program is also available.

New features in this release include:

  • A redesign of the main window.
  • Options for changing the name of the output files when creating metafiles.
  • New columns in the Diagnostics table for SEATS runs.

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 are using X-12-ARIMA, we strongly urge you to upgrade to X-13ARIMA-SEATS. If for some reason you cannot upgrade, contact the person listed under Support below.
