Ooops! just a small correction in the data: In my case I have the prices for 2 goods A and B. The prices are broken down by the pack size represented by id (id takes 2 values as there are 2 kind of sizes). An example is the following clear all input str8 (dates1) priceA PriceB id "23/11/08" 0.5637 0.6034 1 "28/12/08" 2 3 1 "25/01/09" 3 4 1 "22/02/09" 3 1 1 "29/03/09" 5 6 1 "26/04/09" 7 7 1 "24/05/09" 1 5 1 "28/06/09" 1 4 1 "26/07/09" 2 5 1 "23/08/09" 5 8 1 "27/09/09" 5 6 1 "25/10/09" 4 6 1 "22/11/09" 2 1 1 "03/01/10" 2 4 1 "31/01/10" 1 7 1 "28/02/10" 6 3 1 "23/11/08" 4 6 2 "28/12/08" 2 3 2 "25/01/09" 3 4 2 "22/02/09" 3 1 2 "29/03/09" 3 4 2 "26/04/09" 7 7 2 "24/05/09" 1 5 2 "28/06/09" 1 4 2 "26/07/09" 6 5 2 "23/08/09" 5 8 2 "27/09/09" 6 6 2 "25/10/09" 4 6 2 "22/11/09" 2 1 2 "03/01/10" 2 3 2 "31/01/10" 1 7 2 "28/02/10" 6 1 2 end Each value represents a 4-week average (28 days). However, some values represent a 5 week average (35) . You can see that from gen dd = date(dates1, "DM20Y") gen dd2 = dd - dd[_n-1] So, in my case using gen daily=dofw(tw) format daily %td gen monthly=mofd(td) format monthly %tm makes no sense because these observations are not weekly but 4 or 5 week averages. My though is to convert these values to daily and then to monthly. Practically i do not know how to do that. Is there any way to achieve that?
