Revised 1992-97 Seasonally Adjusted Data Now Available for Southeastern Manufacturing Survey

For immediate release Feb. 9, 1998

The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta today released annual revisions for seasonally adjusted data for its survey of southeastern manufacturing conditions. The annual revisions cover the period January 1992 through December 1997.

Besides incorporating standard annual updates for seasonal factors, the revisions include late-received reports from southeastern manufacturers not previously incorporated in published reports. The seasonal factors are derived over the entire six-year period, using the U.S. Bureau of the Census X-11 ARIMA seasonal adjustment procedure.

The release of January's initial data in the southeastern manufacturing survey is scheduled for Feb. 12. The historical revisions contain monthly revisions to December 1997 data.

Data can be downloaded from the Atlanta Fed's Southeastern Manufacturing Survey History.
