Converting fiscal year data into calendar year values: CS11-614/88-12E-PDF

"This document introduces a method to correct the reference periods of yearly data. It can be used to transform "fiscal year" data referring to the months of April to March of the following year, for instance, into calendar values referring to the month of January to December. Variants of the method are developed for flow, stock and index series. The method may also be used to dis-aggregate yearly data (fiscal or not) into monthly or quarterly values. The approach accomodates situations where the reference periods of the original data vary from occasion to occasion. It could also be adapted to transform fiscal quarter data into calendar quarters and bundles of weekly data into monthly values"--Abstract.
