How to add a row to a frame from another data frame in R?

R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Sometimes we want to add new data to original data frame in situations such as we need more data for analysis, looking for comparison between small size and large size data, or some data is missing in the original data and hence need more to be added from other data sets. One such thing would be adding a new to an existing data frame from another data frame. It can be done with the help of rbind function as shown in the below example.

Consider the below data frames df1 and df2 −

Example

 Live Demo

x<-rnorm(20,5,0.32)
y<-rnorm(20)
df1<-data.frame(x,y)
df1

Output

       x        y

Example

y<-rnorm(20)
df2<-data.frame(x,y)
df2

Adding one row from df2 in df1 −

Example

df1<-rbind(df1,df2[1,])
df1

Output
