Defines functions Panel2Lag

Documented in Panel2Lag

#' Function to compute a vector of 2 lagged values of a variable from panel data.
#'
#' The panel data have a set of time series for each entity (e.g. country)
#' arranged such that all time series data for one entity is together. The
#' data for the second entity should be below the entire data for first entity.
#' When a variable is lagged twice, special care is needed to insert NA's for
#' the first two time points (e.g. weeks) for each entity (country).
#'
#' @param ID {Location of the column having time identities (e.g. the week number)}
#' @param xj {Data on variable to be lagged linked to ID}
#' @return Vector containing  2 lagged values of xj.
#' @seealso A more general function \code{\link{PanelLag}} has examples.
#' @note This function is provided for convenient user modifications.
