Strictly speaking: no, you cannot know the monthly gross product if you
have only yearly data. Where would that information come from? Stata
can only analyse the data you have given it, it cannot create new data.

You can of course replicate the yearly estimate 12 times and call it
monthly data, or interpolate. Is that what you mean?
