Case (b) shows a trend in the local mean while the variability remains constant. Case (c) exhibits a constant local mean while the variability contains a trend and case (d) illustrates a trend in both the local mean and t h e variability. Proportional Effect When we look at estimation in later chapters, anomalies in the local variability will have an impact on the accuracy of our estimates. If we are in an area with very uniform values, the prospects for accurate estimates are quite good. O n the other hand, if the data values fluctuate wildly our chances for accurate local estimates are poor.
