Seasonal adjustment is a routine activity in statistical offices nowadays, and the number of series to be adjusted is rapidly increasing. Indeed, seasonal adjustment is a subject of perpetual debate in many respects, with many seasonal adjustment methods and tools.

When seasonal adjustment is done by dividing the time series by seasonal factors (or combined seasonal-trading day-holiday factors) it is arithmetically impossible for the adjusted series to have the same annual totals as the unadjusted series (except in the uninteresting case in which the time series values repeat perfectly from year Seasonal adjustment with measurement error present book year).
