Abstract
Earlier [9,10 and 11] the authors worked on Trend effects and Seasonal effects on number of passengers and income of South Central Railway Zone for the data collected from 2009 to 2017. While calculating trend values [9] we have used different linear and non-linear models like Straight line, Parabola, Exponential and Power curve models. Similarly to determine Seasonal effects [10] we have used Simple Averages Method and Ratio to Trend Method [11]. Now we proceed to determine Seasonal effects through an improved method over Simple Averages and Ratio to Trend Method namely ‘Ratio to Moving Average Method’. Conclusions are drawn based on the results obtained.
