# R/welch.R In seastests: Seasonality Tests

#### Documented in welch

```#' Welch seasonality test
#'
#' Test for seasonality in a time series using Welch's ANOVA test.
#' @param x time series
#' @param freq Frequency of the time series
#' @param diff Shall the differenced series be tested?
#' @param residuals Shall the residuals of an ARIMA model be tested?
#' @param autoarima Use automatic instead of a (0,1,1) ARIMA model?
#' @param rank Use rank of series instead of actual values?
#' @details If residuals=FALSE the autoarima parameter is ignored.
#' @details If rank=TRUE, the test becomes basically a combination of the Kruskall-Wallis and the Welch test.
#' @details If residuals=TRUE, a non-seasonal ARIMA model is estimated for the time series. And the residuals of the fitted model are used as input to the test statistic. If an automatic order selection is used, the Hyndman-Khandakar algorithm is employed with max(p)=max(q) <= 3.
