How to create a replacement column with multiple conditions and NA in R data frame?

R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To create a replacement column with multiple conditions and NA in R data frame, we can follow the below steps −

  • First of all, create a data frame.

  • Then, use nested ifelse function to create a replacement column with multiple conditions.

Example

Create the data frame

Let’s create a data frame as shown below −

x<-sample(c(NA,rpois(2,2)),25,replace=TRUE)
df<-data.frame(x)
df

Output

On executing, the above script generates the below output(this output will vary on your system due to randomization) −

    x
1   2
2  NA
3   2
4   2
5   2
6   2
7   2
8   NA
9   2
10  NA
11  2
12  NA
13  2
14  2
15  NA
16  NA
17  NA
18  2
19  2
20  NA
21  2
22  2
23  NA
24  NA
25  2

Replace column with multiple conditions

Using nested ifelse function to create a replacement column for column x with multiple conditions as shown below −

x<-sample(c(NA,rpois(2,2)),25,replace=TRUE)
df<-data.frame(x)
df$Replaced<-ifelse(df$x %in% 1,"5",ifelse(df$x %in% 2,"10",NA))
df

Output

   x Replaced
1  0   NA
2  4   NA
3  0   NA
4  NA  NA
5  0   NA
6  NA  NA
7  NA  NA
8   4  NA
9   0  NA
10  4  NA
11  4  NA
12  0  NA
13 NA  NA
14  0  NA
15  0  NA
16 NA  NA
17 NA  NA
18  4  NA
19  0  NA
20 NA  NA
21  0  NA
22  4  NA
23 NA  NA
24 NA  NA
25  4  NA
