Idaho businesses are invited to learn about seasonal adjustments in employment and unemployment data in a free webinar Jan. 17.

Lisa Grigg, Idaho Department of Labor economist for north central Idaho, will explain the reasons behind seasonality and shed light on the seasonal adjustment process. Workshop participants will learn what seasonal adjustments are and how the process allows clearer comparisons of data over time as calendar effects, major outliers and one-time events are eliminated.

After graduating from Eastern Washington University with degrees in finance and economics, Grigg worked as an investment officer for the Washington State Investment Board before joining the Department of Labor. Her focus within the department is to meet the labor market needs of the business community in north central Idaho.

The event is free and will be held via Zoom from 11 a.m. to noon (MST). Registration is available at this link.
