Extract Data Frame Rows by Dates in R (Example Code)

In this tutorial, I’ll illustrate how to select data frame rows in a particular date range in R.

Creation of Example Data

my_df <- data.frame(Date = c("2021-11-12", "2023-05-13", "2027-11-15",  # Example data
                             "2029-01-12", "2012-11-11", "2022-10-18",
                             "2020-05-22", "2022-07-14", "2023-11-15"),
                    Value = letters[1:9])
my_df                                                                   # Show example data
#         Date Value
# 1 2021-11-12     a
# 2 2023-05-13     b
# 3 2027-11-15     c
# 4 2029-01-12     d
# 5 2012-11-11     e
# 6 2022-10-18     f
# 7 2020-05-22     g
# 8 2022-07-14     h
# 9 2023-11-15     i

Example: Convert Character to Date & Extract Data Frame Subset

my_df$Date <- as.Date(my_df$Date)                                       # Converting column to Date class
my_df[my_df$Date >= "2020-10-01" & my_df$Date <= "2026-12-01", ]        # Date range
#         Date Value
# 1 2021-11-12     a
# 2 2023-05-13     b
# 6 2022-10-18     f
# 8 2022-07-14     h
# 9 2023-11-15     i
