Merging (multivariate) time series¶
The following makes use of the zoo package. You may need to install it from
CRAN using the code
install.packages("zoo") if you want to run this on your computer. (The
package is already installed on the notebook container, however.)
Attaching package: 'zoo' The following objects are masked from 'package:base': as.Date, as.Date.numeric
The file “zpresidents.RData” was created in an earlier example.
Netherlands <- unemployment.z[,4] length(Netherlands)
Belgium <- unemployment.z[,5] length(Belgium)
Luxembourg <- na.omit(unemployment.z[,6]) length(Luxembourg)
unemployment.benelux <- merge(Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg) head(unemployment.benelux,n=10)

Downloadable R script and interactive version
The link with the “jupyterhub” icon directs you to an interactive Jupyter1 notebook, which runs inside a Docker container2. There are two variants of the interative notebook. One shuts down after 60 seconds and does not require a sign it. The other requires sign in using your ORCID3 credentials, yet shuts down only after 24 hours. (There is no guarantee that such a container persists that long, it may be shut down earlier for maintenance purposes.) After shutdown all data within the container will be reset, i.e. all files created by the user will be deleted.4
Above you see a rendered version of the Jupyter notebook.5
ORCID is a free service for the authentication of researchers. It also allows to showcase publications and contributions to the academic community such as peer review.. See
