# aggregate.zoo

##### 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.

- Keywords
- ts

##### Usage

```
# S3 method for zoo
aggregate(x, by, FUN = sum, …,
regular = NULL, frequency = NULL, coredata = TRUE)
```

##### Arguments

- x
an object of class

`"zoo"`

.- by
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 aggregation groups.- FUN
a function to compute the summary statistics which can be applied to all subsets. Always needs to return a result of fixed length (typically scalar).

- …
further arguments passed to

`FUN`

.- regular
logical. Should the aggregated series be coerced to class

`"zooreg"`

(if the series is regular)? The default is`FALSE`

for`"zoo"`

series and`TRUE`

for`"zooreg"`

series.- frequency
numeric indicating the frequency of the aggregated series (if a

`"zooreg"`

series should be returned. The default is to determine the frequency from the data if`regular`

is`TRUE`

. If`frequency`

is specified, it sets`regular`

to`TRUE`

. See examples for illustration.- coredata
logical. Should only the

`coredata(x)`

be passed to every`by`

group? If set to`FALSE`

the full zoo series is used.

##### Value

An object of class `"zoo"`

or `"zooreg"`

.

##### Note

The `xts`

package functions `endpoints`

, `period.apply`

`to.period`

, `to.weekly`

, `to.monthly`

, etc.,
can also directly input and output certain `zoo`

objects and
so can be used for aggregation tasks in some cases as well.
