Frequency conversion settings

Postby awatt43 » Fri Sep 07, 2018 3:04 am

Hi there,

Is there a way for me to ensure that the low to high frequency conversion settings will always be the same when I run a particular program?

For example, in some instances I might want to use a constant value for the period say if I were using a policy rate, whilst if I were pulling through GDP I would maybe want to interpolate in some way.

Is there a command that I can use in the programming language to change these settings before running my analysis or do I have to manually change this everytime?

Thanks,
Abi

When doing the frequency conversion in your program, specify the method you want to use.

How does this work if you are pulling directly from a database?

E.g. if I am pulling an annual GDP series from Bloomberg or Haver into a quarterly work file it will automatically follow the setting that I have last used in the general options?

The fetch and copy commands both have options for frequency conversion
