WHAT IF...? REVISIONS TO TREND ESTIMATES


EFFECT OF NEW SEASONALLY ADJUSTED ESTIMATES ON TREND ESTIMATES


ANALYSIS

This information is presented to give an indicative view of the possible revision of the current trend estimates based on the different scenarios of the future seasonally adjusted estimates. These estimates should not be used as a prediction of future trend estimates. For further information, see Explanatory Notes, paragraphs 12 and 13.

The graph below presents the effect of two possible scenarios on the published trend estimates.

1 The May 2014 seasonally adjusted estimate of total vehicle sales is higher than the April 2014 seasonally adjusted estimate by 2.2%.

2 The May 2014 seasonally adjusted estimate of total vehicle sales is lower than the April 2014 seasonally adjusted estimate by 2.2%.

The percentage change of 2.2% was chosen because the average absolute percentage change over the last 10 years has been 2.2%. The percentage change has been reviewed and updated following the recent re-analysis of the time series.
