An Index Class for Quaterly Data

"yearqtr" is a class for representing quaterly data.

Keywords
ts
Usage
yearqtr(x)
Arguments
x
numeric (interpreted as being in years).
Details

The yearqtr class is used to represent quaterly data. Internally it holds the data as year plus 0 for Quarter 1, 1/4 for Quarter 2 and so on in order that its internal representation is the same as ts class with frequency = 4. If x is not in this format it is rounded via floor(4*x + .0001)/4. There are coercion methods available for various classes including: default coercion to "yearqtr" (which coerces to "numeric" first) and coercion from "yearqtr" to "Date" (see below), "POSIXct", "POSIXlt", "numeric", "character".

Value

  • Returns its argument converted to class yearqtr.
