data <- read.table(text="X Y    Z
                   ID12   2012-06    566
                   ID1    2012-06  10239

                   ID6    2012-08   4104",header=TRUE)
Split a data frame
mydt2 = split(data, data$Y)
Get first list element
Calculate mean on each list element
sapply(mydt2 , function(x) mean(x$Z))
Split a list into multiple data frames
for(i in 1:length(mydt2)) {
  assign(paste0("t.", i), mydt2[[i]])
