The reconstruction of a macroeconomic dataset for Uganda

Account of the re-construction of a macroeconomic dataset for Uganda. The sources of data, the splicing together of consumer price indices and interpolation of missing quarterly observations, the interpolation of quarterly GDP and the estimation of quarterly monetary GDY and GDE, are described.

The final section of the paper discusses some of the time-series characteristics of the data [author]
