Future media viewership is forecast based on time ordered analysis of historical viewership information from an individual or combination of a plurality of data sets. Forecast models having coefficients derived from comparisons of time series representations of data sets across a plurality of time periods and data sources join together disparate data sets. Individual data sets from disparate data sources may be compared to identify possible untrustworthy data or data that requires further investigation. Organizing viewership information in a time series allows for imputing missing data in a respective data set.
