lubridate (version 1.9.0)

week: Get/set weeks component of a date-time

Description

week() returns the number of complete seven day periods that have occurred between the date and January 1st, plus one.

isoweek() returns the week as it would appear in the ISO 8601 system, which uses a reoccurring leap week.
