Was just looking into the crossover January weeks and found it is not consistant (or maybe the method eludes me):

w/e jan 3rd 2009 = Dec08
w/e jan 4th 2014 = Dec13
w/e jan 3rd 2015 = Jan15*

So a week that ended Jan 4th was part of the previous year, then the next year a week ending Jan 3rd was part of the new year

However after that I found something else, unless I am mistaken there seems to be an error in December 2015 for the VGC graphs.
For Nov 2015 I checked both PS4 & WiiU and it is classed as the 4-weeks ending Nov28th
Jan 2016 is classed as the 4-weeks ending Jan30th

The 5-weeks inbetween those two periods though do not add-up correctly to what the monthly graphs say.... So December 2015 includes 6 weeks which seem to be the 5 weeks ending Jan2nd 2016 but also adding in the week ending Jan3rd 2015 as well.

*Edit: Just checked and it isn't actually counted in Dec 2014 or Jan 15... but instead added into Dec 2015 for some reason.

Hi @HigHurtenflurst

It is very interesting what you point out. Obviously with all of these numbers and having to revise them will cause small Errors. It kind of seems like Months and years are calculated independently, or even manually. I got curious with your discovery and decided to do a little comparison between VGC months and using the method of giving the week to the month that has more days. It is obvious that I found many diferences, but one interesting thing is that some ocasions something that was added to one month ended up being distributed across at least two different months. This makes me wonder if it was manually edited.

It might be too much to share the whole chart here, but I highlighted some occasions where something was given to one month but then two months got that value distributed between them. Like PS3 months 3,4, and 5. In General these little details are minor numbers that probably got manually assigned. But something that is important is that all of these green and red numbers show that the system automatically just gives the week to the month it lands on at the end date. This might be something that @PAOerfulone might find interesting.
