# How to create factors in r

### What is factor R?

**Factor**in

**R**is a variable used to categorize and store the data, having a limited number of different values. It stores the data as a vector of integer values.

**Factor**in

**R**is also known as a categorical variable that stores both string and integer data values as levels.

### How do you factor a vector in R?

**R**–**Factors**- #
**Create**a**vector**as input. - #
**Create**the**vectors**for data frame. - data <- c(“East”,”West”,”East”,”North”,”North”,”East”,”West”, “West”,”West”,”East”,”North”) #
**Create**the**factors**factor_data <-**factor**(data) print(factor_data) # Apply the**factor**function with required order of the level.

### How do I convert a character to a factor in R?

To

**convert factor**levels into**character**then we can use as.**character**function by accessing the column of the data frame that contain**factor**values. For example, if we have a data frame df which contains a**factor**column named as Gender then this column can be converted into**character**column as as.**character**(df$Gender).### What is r level?

**levels**provides access to the

**levels**attribute of a variable. The first form returns the value of the

**levels**of its argument and the second sets the attribute.

### How do you give a level in R?

When you first get a data set, you will often notice that it contains factors with specific factor

**levels**. However, sometimes you will want to change the names of these**levels**for clarity or other reasons.**R**allows you to do this with the function**levels**() :**levels**(factor_vector) <- c(“name1”, “name2”,)### How do I convert character to numeric in R?

To

**convert**a**character**vector to a**numeric**vector, use as.**numeric**(). It is important to do this before using the vector in any statistical functions, since the default behavior in**R**is to**convert character**vectors to factors. Be careful that there are no characters included in any strings, since as.### What does DBL mean in R?

**dbl**stands for double class. A double-precision floating point number. Fer May 12, 2019, 10:34pm #3. It is a data type defined to hold numeric values with decimal points (

**dbl**came from double). The alternative, integer, is defined for integer numbers.

### How do I use numeric function in R?

To convert factors to

**numeric**value in**R**,**use**the as.**numeric**()**function**. If the input is a vector, then**use**the factor() method to convert it into the factor and then**use**the as.**numeric**() method to convert the factor into**numeric**values.### How do I replace NAs with 0 in R?

To

**replace NA with 0**in an**R**data frame, use is.**na**() function and then select all those values with**NA**and assign them to**0**. myDataframe is the data frame in which you would like**replace**all**NAs with 0**.### How do I replace missing values in R?

**How to Replace Missing Values**(**NA) in R**:**na**.**omit &**

**na**.**rm**

- mutate()
- Exclude
**Missing Values**(**NA**) - Impute
**Missing Values**(**NA**) with the Mean and Median.

### How do you set missing values in R?

In

**R**the**missing values**are coded by the symbol**NA**. To identify missings in your dataset the function is is.**na**() . When you import dataset from other statistical applications the**missing values**might be coded with a number, for example 99 . In order to let**R**know that is a**missing value**you need to recode it.### How do you fill NA in R?

**How to replace NA**values in columns of an**R**data frame form the**mean**of that column?- df$x[is.
**na**(df$x)]<-**mean**(df$x,**na**. rm=TRUE) df. - df$y[is.
**na**(df$y)]<-**mean**(df$y,**na**. rm=TRUE) df. - df$z[is.
**na**(df$z)]<-**mean**(df$z,**na**. rm=TRUE) df.

### Is Na omit R?

The

**na**.**omit R**function removes all incomplete cases of a data object (typically of a data frame, matrix or vector). The syntax above illustrates the basic programming code for**na**.**omit**in**R**.### What does na mean r?

In

**R**, missing values are represented by the symbol**NA**(not available). Impossible values (e.g., dividing by zero) are represented by the symbol NaN (not a number). Unlike SAS,**R**uses the same symbol for character and numeric data. For more practice on working with missing data, try this course on cleaning data in**R**.### Why mean is na in R?

The general idea in

**R**is that**NA**stands for “unknown”. If some of the values in a vector are unknown, then the**mean**of the vector is also unknown.**NA**is also used in other ways sometimes; then it makes sense to remove it and compute the**mean**of the other values.### How do I ignore NA in R?

First, if we want to exclude missing values from mathematical operations use the

**na**. rm = TRUE argument. If you do not exclude these values most functions will return an**NA**. We may also desire to subset our data to obtain complete observations, those observations (rows) in our data that contain no missing data.### How do I get rid of all NA in R?

omit() function returns a list without

**any**rows that contain**na**values. This is the fastest**way to remove na**rows in the**R**programming language. Passing your data frame or matrix through the**na**. omit() function is a simple way to purge incomplete records from your analysis.### How do you find the percentage of Na in R?

You could also use dplyr::summarize_all for the column-wise proportions. x %>% summarize_all(funs(sum(is.

**na**(.)) / length(.)))### What percentage of missing data is acceptable?

@shuvayan – Theoretically, 25 to 30% is the maximum

**missing values**are**allowed**, beyond which we might want to drop the variable from analysis. Practically this varies.At times we get variables with ~50% of**missing values**but still the customer insist to have it for analyzing.### How do you find the missing value of a percentage?

Alternatively, we can

**get**the same result by taking the result of the count method and dividing by the number of rows. This gives us the**percentage**of non-**missing values**in each column. From here, we can subtract each**value**in the Series from 1 to**get**the same result as the one-line solution from above.### How do you find the missing data percentage?

E.g. the number of

**missing data**elements for the read variable (cell G6) is 15, as**calculated**by the**formula**=COUNT(B4:B23). Since there are 20 rows in the**data**range the**percentage**of non-**missing**cells for read (cell G7) is 15/20 = 75%, which can be**calculated**by =G6/COUNTA(B4:B23).### What is 15 as a percentage of 25?

**15**is 60

**percent of 25**.

### What percent is 17 out of 40?
