st: quarterly to monthly
I have a quaterly food price index (FPI) series like this:
.....to dec 2003.
I want to generate a monthly series. Kit Baum has proposed the denton method. for the basically generating monthly series from a quarterly one, I know that the stata code is:
dentonmq qflow, ind(mflow) gen(minterp)
But I can't understand what's the indicator variable (mflow) in my case? and How can I have a monthly series with this stata code That I can't understand it? Has anyone else experienced this kind of problem before?
I hope someone will be able to help me with this. Thanks in advance
