dataframe count is a quick, easy way to count a number of values in a column. It’s basically a series of tuples (the first pair is the row, the second the column, and the third the number of values in the column).
The dataframe count function takes in a value, the column name, and optionally an axis, and produces a numeric value. For example, dataframe count(df$a) would return the number of values in the first column of df. It is similar to dataframe length(df), but in this case the return value is an integer.
dataframe count is the most commonly used function in any R package, and it’s also one of the most efficient. I’ll be honest, it is not as nice as dataframe mget, but it’s a quick and easy way to get a count of how many rows you have.
dataframe count is often used when you want to count the number or other statistic in a dataframe. For example, if you want to know how many people have ever watched a particular TV show, you can count the number of rows in the dataframe by doing dataframe countdfa > 0.
The count function is simple and straightforward from what I can tell. It returns a (non-NULL) dataframe of the same number of columns as the original dataframe. The function also accepts a variable number of arguments, so we can do something like this: dataframe countdfa gt 0 counts the rows in df1 by passing 1 to the function, and then df2.countdfa gt 0.
I’m not sure if this is a better way to count the number of rows than the total number of columns. I do like that df1.count df2.
For something like count, it’s often the easiest way to get the total number of columns and rows in a dataframe.
Just keep in mind that df1 is typically a tabulate-able data set, which makes the task a bit easier, but it’s still a bit of a pain sometimes.
When you’re working with tabulate-able data sets that are also being read in from a file, you can use the count function. I tend to like it better, but its still a pain sometimes.
I think this is one of those times where I think that youre doing something wrong. First of all, df1 is usually not tabulate-able, so I usually tend to avoid df1.count, but sometimes you do want to use the function if youre working with tabulate-able data sets.
