  • REFERENCE PERIOD:  The length of time for which data are collected, e.g. a specific day, month or year.

Although this indicator allows for the regular monitoring of the trend of the variable, the calculation of this rate of change is particularly influenced by seasonal and other more specific effects in one (or both) of the months compared.
