New material made available to SDMX implementers, published on 18 September 2016 The newly published "Guidelines on coding time transformations in SDMX" (Version 1.0, September 2016) describe two methods that may be used to code a time transformation, defined as a time-related operation performed on a time series, solely involving observations of that time series. Examples of such time transformations are growth rates, cumulative sums over several periods and moving averages.
