Our calendar table is often used, although in a business environment.
The types of data we hold are:
date - each day since we started collecting data, and for a few years in advance of today
day name - Monday to Sunday
day number - 1 to 7 (for sorting groups of days by day of week)
public holiday flag
month number & name
year (can also be extracted from the date)
week-end, month-end, year end dates
quarter number (Jan to March = 1st quarter)
financial period (accounting months)
Using this table it is possible for us to group our data (almost!) any way the users would like to see it.
Obviously, the academic requirements will be different.
