Re: [R] Generation of missiing values in a time serie...

First we generate some sample data x and its times tt. Then using the zoo package we create an irregularly spaced time series. Now if you want a regularly spaced time series convert it to ts class. After loading zoo as shown below, the R command vignette("zoo") gives more info.

x <- 1:4
tt <- c(1, 3, 4, 6)

x.zoo <- zoo(x, tt) # irregularly spaced time series
x.ts <- as.ts(x.zoo) # regular time series with NAs
