The Seasonality of the Italian Cost-of-Living Index
AbstractIn the case of the consumer price index the importance of a seasonally adjusted measure lies in the possibility of promptly identifying turning points in inflation. The focus of this paper is the so-called "cost-of-living" index, the most used measure of Italian inflation. Our aim is to identify and test a model of its seasonal component, which is important in explaining the overall variability of the index.
