X-13-Graph is a program developed at the Census Bureau to provide graphical diagnostics for the Bureau's X-12-ARIMA 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 14 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.

Download X-13-Graph Java

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 2.0 follows X-13-Graph Batch Version 1.6. It contains all the same graphs and options as that program, and adds to it sliding spans graphs, seasonal factor by month graphs to compare two adjustments, and a number of graphs of SEATS filters, their squared gains and time shifts, and other SEATS diagnostic graphs
