TidyX Episode 120 – Working within columns in tidyverse

This week, Ellis Hughes and I go over various things you can do with columns in {tidyverse}.

Some of the topics we cover:

  • Selecting columns by both name and number
  • Using starts_with(), ends_with(), and match() functions to select columns with a specific words within their string
  • Using where() to select and rows where a specific condition is met
  • Several approaches to renaming columns
  • Relocating columns to put columns in the order you’d like them to be in
  • Differences between pluck() and pull() functions
