If you think interpolation is a good idea for your problem, it is not
outrageous in my view to try three methods to see which works best.
(Sounds like a big "if" to me.) Otherwise your question is
unanswerable, as which works "best" will depend on patterns of change
in your data.

You are referring here in part to user-written programs, so please
explain where they come from, as is recommended in the Statalist FAQ.
You missed -pchipolate- (SSC).
