Adjustment of economic production sub-annual series to corresponding annual series: CS11-617/86-6E-PDF

Differences in terms of estimates produced will exist between the sub-annual and annual surveys figures due to different versions of the frame. The problem of adjusting sub-annual series to annual benchmarks is studied here in the context of a production environment. Some methods to solve the problem are reviewed.
