A possible frequency passed to the ts() function

guess_frequency(x)

## Arguments

x An index object including "yearmonth", "yearquarter", "Date" and others.

## Details

If a series of observations are collected more frequently than weekly, it is more likely to have multiple seasonalities. This function returns a frequency value at its smallest. For example, hourly data would have daily, weekly and annual frequencies of 24, 168 and 8766 respectively, and hence it gives 24.
