Compute Summary Statistics of zoo Objects

Splits a "zoo" object into subsets along a coarser index grid, computes summary statistics for each, and returns the reduced "zoo" object.

## S3 method for class 'zoo':
aggregate(x, by, FUN, \dots)
an object of class "zoo".
index vector of the same length as index(x) which defines aggregation groups and the new index to be associated with each group. If by is a function, then it is applied to index(x) to obtain the aggregati
a scalar function to compute the summary statistics which can be applied to all subsets.
further arguments passed to FUN.

  • An object of class "zoo" or "zooreg" (if the resulting series is.regular).
