How to create a plot in base R with dates sequence on X-axis?

R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

If we have a vector that contains dates as sequence that needs to be plotted on the X-axis and another vector for the response then the plot can be simply created by using the plot function. In the plot function, we would need to pass the dates as the first argument and the response vector as the second argument. Check ou the examples below to understand how it works.

Example

 Live Demo

x<-rpois(10,5)
x

Output

[1] 4 7 4 4 6 4 3 4 9 5

Example

dates<-seq(as.Date("25/11/2020",format="%d/%m/%Y"),by="days",length=length(x))
dates

Output

[1] "2020-11-25" "2020-11-26" "2020-11-27" "2020-11-28" "2020-11-29"
[6] "2020-11-30" "2020-12-01" "2020-12-02" "2020-12-03" "2020-12-04"

Example

plot(dates,x)

Output

Example

y<-sample(0:9,10,replace=TRUE)
dates<-seq(as.Date("01/01/2020",format="%d/%m/%Y"),by="days",length=length(x))
plot(dates,y)

Output
