New seasonal adjustment software taken into use

In connection with the release of 22 June 2016, the statistics on quarterly sector accounts have adopted new seasonal adjustment software JDemetra+. The software change does not affect the used seasonal adjustment method. The change does not influence the interpretation or use of the time series either. You can read more about the implementation of the new seasonal adjustment software in Statistics Finland's separate press release at: http://tilastokeskus.fi/ajk/poimintoja/nosto_003_2015-02-18_en.html

 In connection with the adoption of the new seasonal adjustment software, the seasonal adjustment models of the time series were also updated. Due to the updating of the models, the seasonally adjusted series and the trend series changed slightly. As a rule, changes caused by the updating of the models were minor.
