(ITM) Quarterly seasonally adjusted international travel and migration series now available

7 April 2009

From 7 April 2009, Statistics New Zealand is publishing seasonally adjusted international travel and migration series on a quarterly basis, in addition to the monthly series already available. All quarterly seasonally adjusted series begin in the March 1996 quarter.

The quarterly series are adjusted independently of the adjustments made to the monthly series. The monthly figures are summed into quarters, then seasonally adjusted. This gives slightly different results to summing the monthly seasonally adjusted figures. Also, extra adjustments for calendar effects differ between the monthly and quarterly seasonal adjustment processes.

The new seasonally adjusted series are available within the following Infoshare tables. These can be found under Tourism, then International Travel and Migration, on the Browse screen.
