subset.tsdl
returns a subset of the time series data from
the Time Series Data Library. Subsets can be for specific periods,
or specific types of data or both.
# S3 method for tsdl subset(x, cond1, cond2, ...)
x  TSDL data or a subset of TSDL data 

cond1, cond2  Optional conditions specifying subject (type) or frequency of the data. Character variable would be recognised as subject and numeric variable would be recognised as frequency. Positions are interchangeable. 
...  Other arguments specifying conditions for where to search and what to search.

An object of class tsdl
consisting of the selected series.
See unique(meta_tsdl$frequency)
for possible values
for cond1
and cond2
denoting frequency.
See unique(meta_tsdl$subject)
for possible values
for cond1
and cond2
denoting subject.
Partial matching used for both conditions.
