Subset DataFrame Between Two Dates in R

  • Last Updated : 11 Oct, 2021

In this article, we are going to get the data between two dates in dataframe in R Programming Language.

We can create a column to store date using as.Date() function

Syntax:

as.Date(‘yyyy-mm-dd’)

Example: Creating dataframe 



R




# create a dataframe with 6 rows and 2 columns
# one column is of 6 dates with date type as
# year-month-day format
# second is temperature degrees
data = data.frame(date=c(as.Date('2020-6-6'),
                         as.Date('2021-12-1'),
                         as.Date('2021-11-27'),
                         as.Date('2020-6-1'),
                         as.Date('2019-6-6'),
                         as.Date('2017-12-1')),
                  temperature=c(43, 41, 34, 33, 40, 29))
 
# display
print(data)

Output:

We are going to subset the data between date ranges using logical operators. Thus, we need less than(<), greater than(>), and the and(&) operator.

Syntax:

dataframe[dataframe$date_column> “start_date” &  dataframe$date_column < “end_date”, ]

where,

  • dataframe is the input dataframe
  • date_column is the date column in the dataframe
  • date is the date specified to get the data from  start_date to end_date

Example: R program to get the data from the given date ranges



R




# create a dataframe with 6 rows and 2 columns
# one column is of 6 dates with date type as
# year-month-day format
# second is temperature degrees
data=data.frame(date=c(as.Date('2020-6-6'),
                       as.Date('2021-12-1'),
                       as.Date('2021-11-27'),
                       as.Date('2020-6-1'),
                       as.Date('2019-6-6'),
                       as.Date('2021-10-12')),
                temperature=c(43,41,34,33,40,29))
 
# subset the dataframe from 1 st january 2021
# to 1 st October 2022
print(data[data$date > "2021-01-01" &   data$date < "2022-10-01", ])

 

 

Output:

                       as.Date('2020-6-1'),
                       as.Date('2019-6-6'),
                       as.Date('2017-10-12')),
                temperature=c(43,41,34,33,40,29))
 
# subset the dataframe from 11th november 2017
# to 1 st October 2019
print(data[data$date > "2017-11-11" &   data$date < "2019-10-01", ])
