TimeSeriesToHigherFrequencyMethod {MacrobondAPI} | R Documentation |

## To higher frequency methods

### Description

A list of named values that determines the method for converting a series to a higher frequency.

### Format

The list contains named objects of type `TimeSeriesToHigherFrequencyMethodClass`

.

### Details

The conversion method for converting to a higher frequency is used when making a unified series request and is a property of `SeriesExpression`

.

- Auto
Determine the method based on the series classification

- Same
Use the same value for the whole period

- Distribute
Use the first value of the time period

- PercentageChange
Distribute the percentage change over the period

- LinearInterpolation
Use a linear interpolation of the values from this to the next period

- Pulse
Use the value for the first value of the period

- QuadraticDistribution
Use quadratic interpolation to distribute the value over the period

- CubicInterpolation
Use a cubic interpolation of the values from this to the next period

### Examples

# Convert the quarterly series "usgdp" to monthly frequency using linear interpolation
seriesRequest <- CreateUnifiedTimeSeriesRequest()
setFrequency(seriesRequest, "Monthly")
reqExp <- addSeries(seriesRequest, "usgdp")
setToHigherFrequencyMethod(reqExp, "LinearInterpolation")
seriesGdp <- FetchTimeSeries(seriesRequest)[[1]]
