Arguments
object

object to be checked for pseries features

Details

A "pseries" is a wrapper around a "basic class" (numeric, factor, logical, character, or complex).

To qualify as a pseries, an object needs to have the following features:

  • class contains "pseries" and there are at least two classes ("pseries" and the basic class),

  • have an appropriate index attribute (defines the panel structure),

  • any of is.numeric, is.factor, is.logical, is.character, is.complex is TRUE.

Value

A logical indicating whether the object is a pseries (TRUE) or not (FALSE).

Examples
# NOT RUN {
# Create a pdata.frame and extract a series, which becomes a pseries
data("EmplUK", package = "plm")
Em <- pdata.frame(EmplUK)
z <- Em$output

class(z) # pseries as indicated by class
is.pseries(z) # and confirmed by check

# destroy index of pseries and re-check
attr(z, "index") <- NA
is.pseries(z) # now FALSE

# }
