This context has led to a study that involves monthly evolutionary trend analysis of the sample the variance of index productions in industry manufacture of basic metals under the impact of seasonality, for EU countries. Application and interpretation of econometric models are trying to capture aspects of developments during 2000-2015, given the international situation with the economic crisis and economic and financial decisions specific to each EUcountry.
