Selecting Observations

Part of the Statistics and Computing book series (SCO)


It bears repeating that the approaches that R uses to select observations are, for the most part, the same as those discussed in the previous chapter for selecting variables. This chapter focuses only on selecting observations, and it does so in the same order as the chapter on selecting variables. The next chapter will cover the selection of variables and observations at the same time but will do so in much less detail.
