Removing the Gap between Annual and Sub-Annual Statistics
Several mathematical methods are available that remove inconsistencies between data that are published at different frequencies. The so-called Denton method is very popularly applied, because of its relatively simplicity. However, in a number of papers in the literature it is argued that another method has to be preferred, the Causey-Trager Growth rate preservation method (GRP). We will compare the Denton method with GRP, and examine relevant aspects of these methods for practical applications.
