# Get Dates from Time Series (ts Object) in R (Example Code)

In this R programming post you’ll learn how to get the dates of a time series object.

## Exemplifying Data

x <- ts(1:5, start = 2025) # Constructing a time series x # Time Series: # Start = 2025 # End = 2029 # Frequency = 1 # [1] 1 2 3 4 5 |

x <- ts(1:5, start = 2025) # Constructing a time series x # Time Series: # Start = 2025 # End = 2029 # Frequency = 1 # [1] 1 2 3 4 5

## Example: Applying as.yearmon() Function of zoo Package to Extract Dates from a Time Series

install.packages("zoo") # Install zoo package library("zoo") # Load zoo |

install.packages("zoo") # Install zoo package library("zoo") # Load zoo

as.yearmon(time(x)) # Extracting dates from time series # [1] "Jan 2025" "Jan 2026" "Jan 2027" "Jan 2028" "Jan 2029" |

as.yearmon(time(x)) # Extracting dates from time series # [1] "Jan 2025" "Jan 2026" "Jan 2027" "Jan 2028" "Jan 2029"
