English term or phrase: seasonality
Can anyone help me to find an aproppriate term in Portuguese to describe "seasonality". It refers to how often an event happens. It might refer to the seasons or any periodic event.

Many thanks

Portuguese translation:Periodicidade
Explanation:
Periodicidade refers to events which occur from time to time. Sazonalidade could potentially mean the same thing but, at least in Brazilian Port., is specifically used in the contexto of prices, monetary indexation, calculation of Price Index and the like.

Hi

Thanks for your reply. I wanted to use sazonalidade but was unable to find confirmation that this was the correct expression within the context. Your explanation regarding prices and monetary indexation confirmed it.

Many thanks

Sazonalidade


Explanation:
Em todos os casos, mesmo nos que não têm a ver com as estações do ano. Che ga ao ponto de ser usada nos casos em que uma coisa não acontece continuamente, de vez em quando dá umas falhadas. Se não é o tempo todo, é sazonal.
