Calculates and returns the (up/down) resampled time series.

## Syntax

**RESAMPLE**(

**X**,

**Stock**,

**Sampling**,

**method**)

- X
- is the univariate time series data (a one dimensional array of cells (e.g. rows or columns)).
- Stock
- is the univariate time series data corresponds to a Stock or flow type of variable.
- Sampling
- is the new relative sampling rate; 1.0 = input date sampling rate, > 1.0 = Up-Sampling, < 1.0 = Down-Sampling.
- method
- is the imputation method for finding intermediate observations values (0=None, 1=Forward Flat, 2=Backward Flat, 3=Linear, 4=Cubic Spline, 5=FFT, etc.).
Value Method 0 None 1 Forward Flat 2 Backward Flat 3 Linear (default) 4 Cubic Spline 5 Fast Fourier Transform

## Remarks

- The time series is homogeneous or equally spaced.
- The time series does not include any missing value or spaces.
- Economics, business, accounting, and related fields often distinguish between quantities that are stocks and those that are flows. These differ in their units of measurement:
- A stock variable is measured at one specific time, and represents a quantity existing at that point in time (e.g. price, inventory, capital, liabilities, assets, etc.), which may have accumulated in the past.
- A flow variable is measured over an interval of time. Therefore a flow would be measured per unit of time (say a month) (e.g. sales, profit, income, investment, etc.).

- The imputation method is only needed if the relative sampling value creates an new observation. This is often the case with Up-sampling ( value > 1), or obscure down-sampling (e.g. 0.333, etc.)
- For time series of flow-type, the function converts (i.e. integrates) the input time series to a stock-type, re-sample it, and, finally, converts (i.e. differences) the resultant (new) time series to a flow-type.
- The value of the first observation in the output time series is either estimated for up-sampling cases, or omitted (i.e. missing value) for down-sampling cases.
- The time index of re-sampled time series is defined as follow:

$$ t^* = i \times f_r$$

where:- $0 \leq i \lt N^* $
- $t^*$ : is the time index of the new (re-sampled) time series.
- $N^*$ : is the new size of the re-sampled time series
- $f_r$ : is the relative sampling frequency

- The size of the returned array depends on the size as the input time series and the desired sampling rate.

$$ N^* = \lfloor (N-1) \times f_r +1 \rfloor$$

where:- $N$ : is the size of the input (original) time series
- $N^*$ : is the new size of the re-sampled time series
- $\lfloor.\rfloor$ : is the floor operator or function
- $f_r$ : is the relative sampling frequency

- The RESAMPLE function is available starting with version 1.64 TURRET.
