    Description

    There are many possible estimators that could be used with annual inventory data. The 5-year moving average has been selected as a default estimator to provide initial results for states having available annual inventory data. User objectives for these estimates are discussed. The characteristics of a moving average are outlined. It is shown that moving average characteristics don't always coincide with user objectives. Alternative estimators are proposed that may have more desirable characteristics than the simple moving average.
