It is not clear from what you describe how you want to deal with the fact
that you have only one annual obs. for each 12 monthly obs. Do you want the
annual obs. to line up with, say, the December obs. in the monthly dataset?
Then it is just an issue of getting a variable in the second dataset that
is %tm, with the month always December. Then you can make the first
database long (so that each row is a country for a given month) and merge
the two on the date variable.
My problem is that i want to merge the var1 of the first database into the
second one and in that way trasform my second bilateral base from a yearly
frecuency to a monthly one. Do you have any idea about how could i do
But it seems like you may also want to do something to the annual obs. It
would be simple if you just wanted to repeat var2 for each month in the
year; is that what you have in mind?
