How to remove NA values from a Vector in R

0 votes
Is there any way to remove NA values from a vector?

If we have a vector consisting of lot values with NA values, how to remove it?

Suppose I have to sum the vector without including NA values?

To calculate sum we can use "sum()" Func by passing argument "na.rm=TRUE"

x<-c(1,23,45,NA,155,78,NA)

sum(x,na.rm=TRUE)

Want to remove NA from the vector

x<-x[!is.na(x)]

data = data[!is.na(data)]\

using the function "complete.cases"

for example, if you want to remove the NA in dataset ,

> x <- c(1, 2, NA, 4, NA, 5)
> y <- c("a", "b", NA, "d", NA, "f")
> good <- complete.cases(x, y)
> good
[1] TRUE TRUE FALSE TRUE FALSE TRUE
> x[good]
[1] 1 2 4 5
> y[good]
[1] "a" "b" "d" "f"
 

above is from coursera lecture R from Professor Peng

That's a nice way to go about it. It's an unusual approach but got the same expected output. Thanks

You can try na.omit() or na.exclude() too. It might help you.

When you view y1,y2, they would be shown as below.

It would show you rows with indices and those with nulls.

Hello team,

you can use na.omit

x <- c(NA, 3, NA, 5)
na.omit(x)
[1] 3 5
attr(,"na.action")
[1] 1 3
attr(,"class")
[1] "omit"
