Detection and Analysis of Small-Amplitude Seasonal Variation in a Short Time Series
The American Economist, 2019, vol. 64, issue 1, 73-81
We discuss a procedure for seasonality analyses of short time-series data with small amplitude. Such analyses are often performed in medical research. In economics, however, time series are typically long and of appreciable amplitude; therefore, economists are used to analyzing such data. Our procedure provides one more tool for the economistsâ€™ data-analysis toolbox. We illustrate the procedureâ€™s application with three examples of real economics data. The examples demonstrate that the procedure can be profitably applied to short economics time series. JEL Classifications: C12, C22, C23, C49, F31
