How to create a date vector with randomization in R?

R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To create a date vector with randomization, we can use sample function but the dates need to be read with as.Date function. For example, if we have 2 dates say 2021-01-01 and 2021-02-02 then a vector with randomization of these three dates can be created by using the command −

sample(c(as.Date("2021-01-01"),as.Date("2021-02-02")),100,replace=TRUE)

Date1<-sample(c(as.Date("2020-05-01"),as.Date("2020-05-21"),as.Date("2020-06-18"),as.Date("2020-06-20")),100,replace=TRUE)
Date1

Output
