you'll need the package lubridate to calculate which week is the given date at first. then you may use group_by and summarise function to summarise data according to week_of_year.

for example:


df1 <- data.frame(
  id_customer = sample(1:30,100,replace = T),
  date = sample(as_date('2019-1-1'):as_date('2019-6-30'),100,replace = T) %>% as_date

df1 %>% mutate(week_of_year = week(date)) %>% group_by(week_of_year) %>% 
  summarise(number_of_customers = sum(id_customer))
