Tracking code temporarily removed, is historical data available

Our tracking code was somehow removed for a month and has now been reinstated. Is it possible to get historical data for the period when it wasn't on the site?

No.

 

If the GA code wasn't present on the site, we can't have tracking data for that period.

This a very frustrating situation have had it before myself.
As it is the code that collects the data, no code = no data
To prevent this from happening for such a long time as a month you may wish to set up an intelligence report that emails you if your traffic drops by more than 50% on any given day - that way if you code is knocked off - or something else bad might be happening then you can react a lot faster to the situation.
