### Compare the different series of hours worked
We want to check graphically that the interpolation of annual hours worked with the Kalman filter is consistent with raw data available in the most recent period. Remind that the interpolation is used only before 2000, we present interpolated data after this date in the plots only to check the consistency of our filtering, but will not use them after. To get recent Eurostat data, we use a [plugin function](https://github.com/dbnomics/rdbnomics) from [DBnomics](https://db.nomics.world/).
