Time series in R is defined as a series of values, each associated with the timestamp also measured over regular intervals (monthly, daily) like weather forecasting and sales analysis. The R stores the time series data in the time-series object and is created using the ts() function as a base distribution.

How Time-series works in R?

R has a powerful inbuilt package to analyze the time series or forecasting. Here it builds a function to take different elements in the process. At last, we should find a better fit for the data. The input data we use here are integer values. Not all data has time values, but their values could be made as time-series data. The data consists of observations over a regular interval of time. It needs several transformations before it is modeled up.
