Abstract:     
In this paper we show that the answer to the question in the title is affirmative, i.e. seasonal adjustment increases the probabilities in a Markov switching regime model of staying in the same regime. This phenomenon is illustrated through Monte Carlo Simulations and with two examples concerning German unemployment and US industrial production.
