Compute Duration

Description

Compute duration between two dates, e.g., duration of an adverse event, relative day, age, ...

Usage

compute_duration(
  start_date,
  end_date,
  in_unit = "days",
  out_unit = "days",
  floor_in = TRUE,
  add_one = TRUE,
  trunc_out = FALSE
)

Arguments

start_date

The start date

A date or date-time object is expected.

Refer to derive_vars_dt() to impute and derive a date from a date character vector to a date object.

Refer to convert_dtc_to_dt() to obtain a vector of imputed dates.

end_date

The end date

A date or date-time object is expected.

Refer to derive_vars_dt() to impute and derive a date from a date character vector to a date object.

Refer to convert_dtc_to_dt() to obtain a vector of imputed dates.

in_unit

Input unit

See floor_in and add_one parameter for details.

Default: 'days'

Permitted Values: 'years', 'months', 'days', 'hours', 'minutes', 'seconds'

out_unit

Output unit

The duration is derived in the specified unit

Default: 'days'

Permitted Values: 'years', 'months', 'weeks', 'days', 'hours', 'minutes', 'seconds'

floor_in

Round down input dates?

The input dates are round down with respect to the input unit, e.g., if the input unit is 'days', the time of the input dates is ignored.

Default: 'TRUE“

Permitted Values: TRUE, FALSE

add_one

Add one input unit?

If the duration is non-negative, one input unit is added. i.e., the duration can not be zero.

Default: TRUE

Permitted Values: TRUE, FALSE

trunc_out

Return integer part

The fractional part of the duration (in output unit) is removed, i.e., the integer part is returned.

Default: FALSE

Permitted Values: TRUE, FALSE

Details

The output is a numeric vector providing the duration as time from start to end date in the specified unit. If the end date is before the start date, the duration is negative.

Value

The duration between the two date in the specified unit
