How to find proportions of a vector in R?

This recipe helps you find proportions of a vector in R


Recipe Objective

While carrying out a statistical analysis on a set of observations collected, finding proportions of these observations that meets a particular condition is most common. ​

To carry out this task, we will follow the following steps: ​

  1. Applying a condition on the vector which is also knwon as boolean test to get a vector of boolean values.
  2. Now passing these boolean values to the mean() function to get the proportion of all the TRUE values

In this recipe, we will discuss how to find proprtions of a vector in R discussing the above steps in details. ​

Step 1: Creating a numeric Vector

We will use a sales example in this case by creating a vector of no of sales of a certain product that took place in a period of 12 months. sales_data = c(5500, 2400, 2500, 2100, 2300, 2600, 2700, 2800, 2300, 3500, 6000, 7500)

Step 2: Apply a boolean test

Finding the sales which are greater than 5000. bool_test_results = sales_data > 5000 bool_test_results


Step 3: Finding the proportion of the vector

Find the proportion of the sales that are greater than 5000 ​


This means that 25% of the sales were higher than 5000 in a period of 12 months. ​
