This should already have been allowed for in the software...if memory
serves me correct....week 1 is the first week of the year which contains
4 days.....depending on where you are...the seventh day is either
Saturday or Sunday...which changes which week is #1.....and I think a
week 53 comes around every 5 years....

It makes doing 13 - 4 week periods for accounting or analysis a little
tricky in that period 13 doesn't contain the same number of weeks.  For
percentage increase/decrease over same period prior year, you have to
take the time span into account.  Not that hard to figure out.
