# How to subset an R data frame based on numerical and categorical column?

Subsetting is one of the commonly used technique which serves many different purposes depending on the objective of analysis. To subset a data frame by excluding a column with the help of dplyr package, we can follow the below steps −

- Creating a data frame.
- Subsetting the data frame based on numerical as well as categorical column at the same time with the help of filter function of dplyr package.

## Create the data frame

Let's create a data frame as shown below −

Level<-sample(c("Low","Medium","High"),20,replace=TRUE) Score<-sample(1:10,20,replace=TRUE) Dat<-data.frame(Level,Score) Dat

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

Level Score 1 High 4 2 Low 7 3 High 1 4 Medium 6 5 Medium 10 6 High 9 7 High 9 8 Low 3 9 Low 3 10 High 4 11 Low 5 12 Medium 3 13 High 8 14 High 10 15 High 5 16 Low 8 17 High 10 18 High 7 19 Low 10 20 Low 6

## Subsetting based on numerical and categorical column

Loading dplyr package and subsetting Dat when Score column is greater than 5 and Level is equal to Low −

library(dplyr) Level<-sample(c("Low","Medium","High"),20,replace=TRUE) Score<-sample(1:10,20,replace=TRUE) Dat<-data.frame(Level,Score) Dat%>%filter(Score>5,Level=="Low")

### Output

Level Score 1 Low 7 2 Low 8 3 Low 10 4 Low 6
