Usage

Arguments

x

a vector or timeDate object. Missing values (NAs) are allowed.

k

the number of positions the input series is to shift for the new series.

  • If k is a positive value, the resulting series is shifted forwards in time.

  • If k is a negative value, the resulting series is shifted backwards in time.

If k is a non-integer value, it is rounded to the nearest integer before the shift is applied.

Value

returns a vector or timeDate object with the positions shifted by k steps.
