Consumer Price Index
Bureau of Labor Statistics > Consumer Price Index > Methods > Seasonal Adjustment

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) produces both unadjusted and seasonally adjusted data. Seasonally adjusted data are computed using seasonal factors derived by the X-13ARIMA-SEATS Seasonal Adjustment Method. These factors are updated with the release of January data in February and reflect price movements from the previous calendar year. The new factors are used to revise the previous 5 years of seasonally adjusted data; older seasonally adjusted indexes older are considered to be final.
