How do I select a column from a Dataframe in R?


Christy Ingram   |   Member since 2019  |  10+ Answers Submitted  |  ✔ Verified

A tibble, or tbl_df, is a modern reimagining of the data. Tibbles are data. frames that are lazy and surly: they do less (i.e. they don't change variable names or types, and don't do partial matching) and complain more (e.g. when a variable does not exist).

  1. pull(): Extract column values as a vector.
  2. select (): Extract one or multiple columns as a data table.
  3. select_if(): Select columns based on a particular condition.
  4. Helper functions - starts_with(), ends_with(), contains(), matches(), one_of(): Select columns /variables based on their names.
