difftime Function in R (Example)

This tutorial shows how to compute the time difference of two date objects with the difftime() function in the R programming language.

Example Data

time_1 <- "2019-08-20 16:09:21"                # First time object
time_2 <- "2019-09-30 13:09:24"                # Second time object

Calculate Time Difference with difftime Function

difftime(time_1, time_2)                       # Application of difftime function
# Time difference of -40.87503 days

The time difference of our two date objects is 40.87503 days.
