explore a trend

Dear all,
I was wondering to know which analysis method would you suggest for assessing a trend during years. let's say we have data on antibiotic resistance in a particular bacteria from 2010 until 2021. how can we determine that this resistance was increased or decreased and how much it is changed during this decade? which method would you suggest? not necessarily in the qiime2 environment.
thank you in advance for your help.

Hi there,

What you are asking is a research question, not a specific R-related one. It is impossible for us to know what you want by such a short description, and this forum might not be the right place for that.

I suggest you read up on time series analysis and the various methods that exist, then try and apply them to the data you are working with. If then you run into a specific issue, you can post again with a reprex (minimal code and data to reproduce the issue) and we can take it from there.

Good luck!
