# [R] How to turn Time Series daily values into weekly means (aggregate?)

```Try this:

y.ts <- ts(y, frequency=7)  # make data weekly
aggregate(y.ts, FUN=mean)

to get your 15 minute readings into a day, this should work:

y.ts <- ts(y, frequency=96)
aggregate(y.ts, FUN=mean)

This is fine as long as everything is evenly spaced.  It might be
better if you had the time of the observation so that it would take
care of missing data when doing the aggregation.
