enw_filter_reference_dates: Filter by reference dates

enw_filter_reference_datesR Documentation

Filter by reference dates

Description

This is a helper function which allows users to filter datasets by reference date. This is useful, for example, when evaluating nowcast performance against fully observed data. Users may wish to combine this function with enw_filter_report_dates(). Note that by definition it is assumed that report dates must be equal or greater than the corresponding reference date (i.e a report cannot happen before the event being reported occurs). This means that this function will also filter out any report dates that are earlier than their corresponding reference date.

Usage

enw_filter_reference_dates(
  obs,
  earliest_date,
  include_days,
  latest_date,
  remove_days
)

Arguments

obs

A data.frame; must have report_date and reference_date columns.

earliest_date

earliest reference date to include in the data set

include_days

if earliest_date is not given, the number of reference dates to include, ending with the latest reference date included (determined by latest_date or remove_days).

latest_date

Date, the latest reference date to include in the returned dataset.

remove_days

Integer, if latest_date is not given, the number of reference dates to remove, starting from the latest date included.

Value

A data.table filtered by report date
