# Convert Vector of Years to Date Object in R (Example Code)

This tutorial demonstrates how to transform a vector of years to a Date object in the R programming language.

## Construction of Example Data

x <- seq(2022, 2028) # Construct example vector x # Print example years # [1] 2022 2023 2024 2025 2026 2027 2028 |

x <- seq(2022, 2028) # Construct example vector x # Print example years # [1] 2022 2023 2024 2025 2026 2027 2028

## Example: Converting Four Digit Year to Date Object

install.packages("lubridate") # Install & load lubridate package library("lubridate") |

install.packages("lubridate") # Install & load lubridate package library("lubridate")

ymd(x, truncated = 2L) # Applying ymd function # [1] "2022-01-01" "2023-01-01" "2024-01-01" "2025-01-01" "2026-01-01" "2027-01-01" "2028-01-01" |

ymd(x, truncated = 2L) # Applying ymd function # [1] "2022-01-01" "2023-01-01" "2024-01-01" "2025-01-01" "2026-01-01" "2027-01-01" "2028-01-01"
