Warning : From September 2013 data onwards, the seasonal and working-day adjustment model has been modified, for monthly business start-up data. Previously, only the time series for business set-ups excluding self-managed enterprises were seasonally adjusted. The self-managed enterprises time series were too short to be properly deseasonalized. From now on, the self-managed enterprises time series are seasonaly adjusted for each main sector throughout France. However, for the self-managed enterprises time series in the sectors of “Financial and insurance activities”, “Real estate” and “Trade, transport, accomModation and catering” , the raw data are similar to seasonally adjusted data, due to a low number of registrations and difficulty identifying a seasonal trend.
