RE: st: turning low frequency data into high frequency
Perhaps I should have underlined that
economists do this ... with the aid
of a so-called indicator series

inferences, or implications, that this is "making it up"
are going too far. Like many statistical
procedures, it is a matter of doing the
best you can with the data you have.
