#time series of 1 in the interval
Int1<-ts(1, start=c(1993, 3), end=c(1997, 5), freq=12)
Int2<-ts(1, start=c(1993, 3), end=c(1997, 5), freq=12)
#original time series
Y <- ts(rnorm(120), freq=12, start=c(1992,8)) #Aug 1992 to Aug 2002
#need zoo and as.zoo because time(ts) I don't see how to use time(ts) nicely
library(zoo)
#condition and values
ifelse(time(as.zoo(Y))%in% time(as.zoo(Int1)),1,0)
