It is the period that the average is based on. As in your example it is for 14 days.

Please do yourself a favor and study this site:

http://www.e-analytics.com/techdir.htm

Read it at least 3 times. It will give you much of the background information you need.

Let me know if you need more informational links.

Good Luck.
