Hi:
I have a dataset and need to interpolate for missing days. In Excel I either average from sampled days from above and below the missing days or use the TREND function to make up for the missing values. I have been reading about na.approx, is this function similar to the TREND function? Which is the best recommendable way to make up for missing data? Here's my dataset: weeks 17,18,26 and 46 have 0 daysSamp.
