How to find the extremes of a data frame column in R if infinity exists in the column?

R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To find the extremes of a data frame column that is numeric can be done with the help of min and max function but if we want to get the same in single line code then range function can be used. If there are some infinity values in the column then range.default function will be used as shown in the below example.

Example

 Live Demo

Consider the below data frame −

set.seed(214)
x1<−sample(c(1,5,Inf,10),20,replace=TRUE)
x2<−rpois(20,5)
df1<−data.frame(x1,x2)
df1

Output

x1 x2
1 Inf 0
2 10 5
3 1 3
4 10 7
5 10 3
6 5 5
7 1 4
8 Inf 2
9 10 3
10 Inf 9
11 1 4
12 Inf 3
13 5 3
14 5 5
15 1 6
16 Inf 1
17 10 6
18 Inf 3
19 10 4
20 10 8

Finding the extremes of column x1 −

Example

range.default(df1$x1,finite=TRUE)

Output

[1] 1 10

 Live Demo

y1<−rnorm(20,5,2.3)
y2<−sample(c(Inf,rnorm(5,2)),20,replace=TRUE)
df2<−data.frame(y1,y2)
df2

Output

y1 y2
1 5.711206 2.367679
2 3.891755 2.367679
3 8.345217 1.529547

5 5.945366 Inf
6 8.204934 1.888925
7 9.634025 Inf
8 5.096354 Inf
9 8.186749 2.367679

19 7.224195 3.003426
20 4.105865 1.888925

Finding the extremes of column x1 −

Example

range.default(df2$y2,finite=TRUE)

Output

[1] 1.529547 3.003426
