 6 Seasonal Effects Seasonal Decomposition and Forecasting, Part I (Auckland Uni) - Tourist visitors to NZ from different countries notes, - Alcohol exemplar - class work, Worksheet & Google Doc - Homework Travel Destination- Google doc template Individual & Estimated Seasonal effects calculated. Does the data have seasonality? Note: iNZight graphs do not have labels on the vertical axis. For Merit or better you will need to add a lable with units on the vertical axis. (Achieve) Discuss the estimated seasonal effects ie what one seasonal cycle is like and possible reason why? How much above and below the trend line do the estimated seasonal effects go? It is NOT enough to say something like "the seasonal effect goes up in summer" Be specific, use numbers, and amounts above or below average (trend line). (Merit) Discuss the estimated seasonal effects in context. Discuss the individual seasonal effects in context, and how they may have changed over time. Are they consistent or changing? How are they changing? (Excellence) In depth discussion: Unusual features? Possible reasons? Discuss variations in the individual seasonal effects between years. How is the seasonal effect changing, and possible reasons for the changes.

Seasonal Effects

Each cycle of seasonal effects plotted, and the Estimated seasonal effect

Shows the variation in seasonal cycles

This could be spread out if there is a long term trend - can look at the dates
