ts()function in R is a fundamental tool for handling time series data. It takes four main arguments:
- data: A vector or matrix of time series values.
- start: The time of the first observation.
- end: The time of the last observation.
- frequency: The number of observations per unit of time.
Read on for an example of how this all works, as well as a function in the TidyDensity package to convert data into the R time series format.
