Main Economic Indicators
Persons, Not Seasonally Adjusted
Working age men aged 55-64 describes the number of men in this age group in the US. This is indicative of population size and demographics.
The data shows autocorrection and a non-normal distribution. The data should be differenced. While the Order Norm transformation, provides the best normality, the Arcsin variable will also perform well.
Data is unable to be distributed by time or geography. The roll up method used is Sum.

Auto Correction Function
Auto Correlation Function After Differencing
Partial Auto Correlation Function
Seasonal and Trend Decompostion
Data shows autocorrectation indicating a need for differencing
The ACF indicates 2 order differencing is appropriate.
Further differencing is reccommended
The Kwiatkowski-Phillips-Schmidt-Shin (KPSS) test, KPSS Trend = 0.35 p-value = 0.01 indicates that the data is not stationary.
The Shapiro-Wilk test returned W = 0.90 with a p-value =0.01 indicating the data does not follow a normal distribution.
A skewness score of -0.43 indicates the data are fairly symmetrical.
Hartigan's dip test score of 0.03 with a p-value of 0.99 inidcates the data is unimodal
