Abstract

This paper describes a RATS (www.estima.com) routine to implement the Chow Lin (1971) procedure for the best linear unbiased distribution and interpolation of time series by related series. Various versions of this procedure have been used in the Bank to distribute/interpolate annual to quarterly time series. One particular use of the routine described here has been to derive quarterly national accounts that have been used to estimate a quarterly macro model of the Irish economy and in various other research studies in the Bank. A zip archive containing a pdf version of the paper, the RATS routine, a sample program and data is available for download. The archive was created using Info-ZIP’s WIZ (http://www.info-zip.org/pub/infozip/WiZ.html) and may be expanded using this program or similar program.
