The concept of the rainfall coincidence rate is introduced and is used as a tool for correcting the errors in the rainfall records which are due to shifts. A method of simulating missing rainfall data without smoothing out the rainfall distribution pattern is presented. Dates are allocated to the generated raindays according to a procedure which takes into account the coincidence rate as well as the occurrence of rainfall over groups of consecutive days.
