We are pleased to announce the December 2018 update for the SPSS Statistics Subscription new user interface.

It also includes a new ROC analysis that is only available in the new user interface.

Seasonal Decomposition
Allows you to analyze time-series data to identify trends. To find it, go to: Analyze -> Forecasting -> Seasonal Decomposition. To learn more, click here.
