The post Subset rows based on their integer locations-slice in R appeared first on Data Science Tutorials

Subset rows based on their integer locations, R has the slice() function, which allows you to subset rows according to their integer places.

The following techniques can be used to subset specific rows in a data frame:

Approach 1: Subset One Particular Row

get row 3 only

`df %>% slice(3)`

Approach 2: Subset Several Rows

get rows 2, 4, and 5

`df %>% slice(2, 4, 5)`

Approach 3: Subset A Range of Rows

get rows 1 through 3

`df %>% slice(1:3)`

Approach 4: Subset Rows by Group

get the first row by group

```df %>%
group_by(var1) %>%
slice(1)```

The examples below demonstrate each technique using the given data frame:

put up a dataset

```df <- data.frame(player = c('P1', 'P2', 'P3', 'P4', 'P5'),
position = c('A', 'B', 'A', 'B', 'B'),
points = c(102, 215, 319, 125, 112),
assists = c(22, 12, 19, 23, 36))```

Now we can view the dataset

```df
player position points assists
1     P1        A    102      22
2     P2        B    215      12
3     P3        A    319      19
4     P4        B    125      23
5     P5        B    112      36```

## Approach 1: Subset One Specific Row

To choose only Row 3 in the data frame using the slice() function, use the following code.

get row 3 only

```df %>% slice(3)
player position points assists
1     P3        A    319      19```

## Approach 2: Subset Several Rows

The slice() function can be used to pick out a few particular rows from the data frame by using the following code.

get rows 2, 4, and 5

```df %>% slice(2, 4, 5)
player position points assists
1     P2        B    215      12
2     P4        B    125      23
3     P5        B    112      36```

## Approach 3: Subset A Range of Rows

To select all rows in the range of 1 through 3, use the slice() function as demonstrated in the code below:

get rows 1 through 3

```df %>% slice(1:3)
player position points assists
1     P1        A    102      22
2     P2        B    215      12
3     P3        A    319      19```

## Approach 4: Subset Rows by Group

The slice() function can be used to select the first row in some groups, as demonstrated by the code below.

slice(1)
player position points assists
<chr>  <chr>     <dbl>   <dbl>
1 P1     A           102      22
2 P2     B           215      12
3 P3     A           319      19
4 P4     B           125      23
5 P5     B           112      36```
