I have a dataframe with numeric variables and categorical factors and i want to separate the dataframe into 2: one with the numeric variables and one with the categorical factors.I am new to R and i am lost.I have tried the split function but i can't work it out.I tried using for loops for checking the variables with is.factor but nothing seems to work!Please help!
As there are only two types ('numeric' and 'factor'), we get the
class of column types by looping through the dataset columns (
) and use that to
split the data.frame into a
list of 'data.frame's.
lst <- split.default(df1, sapply(df1, class))
set.seed(24) df1 <- data.frame(Col1 = LETTERS[1:5], Col2 = as.numeric(1:5), Col3= rnorm(5))
