lag


lag(input[, offset[, default]]) – Returns the value of `input` at the `offset`th row before the current row in the window. The default value of `offset` is 1 and the default value of `default` is null. If the value of `input` at the `offset`th row is null, null is returned. If there is no such offset row (e.g., when the offset is 1, the first row of the window does not have any previous row), `default` is returned.
