Converting sets of weekly data into seasonal monthly values: CS11-614/88-19E-PDF

"This paper presents a method to convert data referring to a varying number of days or weeks - typically 4 or 5 weeks - into monthly values. The method consists of interpolating daily values from such data and of re-aggregating these values into monthly (or weekly) values. The interpolation is in fact a particular application of a appropriate variant of the Denton (1971) benchmarking method: a daily pattern, i.e. a weekly sequence of relative daily weights, is adjusted to comply to the available data"--Summary.
