We show that linear interpolation of a trend stationary series superimposes a ‘periodic’ structure on the moments of the series. Using conventional time-series methods to make inference about the interpolated series may therefore be invalid. Also, the interpolated series may exhibit more shock persistence than the… CONTINUE READING
