I am trying to implement the IDS Metadata package. I read in the documentation on population weekly data that
The data element that it contains, population weekly, uses the aggregation type of “last value” and is meant to be equal to the estimated population total for a year within a given geographical region.
As an example application of this, if your yearly population within District A is 1000, then the weekly population within District A would also be 1000. By using the “last value” aggregation type, these weekly values will not sum and will consistently be equal to 1000 throughout the year within this district.
I will like to found out, must I submit the population data weekly for us to be able to use it in indicator? Or is it possible that at any time the system can use the last value submitted if the population has not changed?
For instance, if I submitted 1000 in Week 2 has the population weekly value. If the population do not changed throughout the year, do I still need to continue to enter the value for the remaining week 3 to 52 or can the indicators use the last value I entered for week 2?
Please note that I am also implementing this for a Daily period.
