# How to create a data frame column with equally spaced values between 0 and 1 in R?

To create a data frame column with equally spaced values between 0 and 1, we can use ppoints function. For example, if we want to create a data frame df with hundred equally spaced values between 0 and 1 then we can use the below mentioned command −

df<-data.frame(x= ppoints(100))

## Example 1

Following snippet creates a data frame column with equally spaced values between 0 and 1 −

x<-ppoints(20)
df1<-data.frame(x)
df1

The following dataframe is created −

    x
1  0.025
2  0.075
3  0.125
4  0.175
5  0.225
6  0.275
7  0.325
8  0.375
9  0.425
10 0.475
11 0.525
12 0.575
13 0.625
14 0.675
15 0.725
16 0.775
17 0.825
18 0.875
19 0.925
20 0.975

## Example 2

Following snippet creates a data frame column with equally spaced values between 0 and 1 −

y<-ppoints(25)
df2<-data.frame(y)
df2

The following dataframe is created −

     y
1  0.02
2  0.06
3  0.10
4  0.14
5  0.18
6  0.22
7  0.26
8  0.30
9  0.34
10 0.38
11 0.42
12 0.46
13 0.50
14 0.54
15 0.58
16 0.62
17 0.66
18 0.70
19 0.74
20 0.78
21 0.82
22 0.86
23 0.90
24 0.94
25 0.98

## Example 3

Following snippet creates a data frame column with equally spaced values between 0 and 1 −

z<-ppoints(30)
df3<-data.frame(z)
df3

The following dataframe is created −

    z
1  0.01666667
2  0.05000000
3  0.08333333
4  0.11666667
