How to arrange a data set in ascending order based on a variable?

0 votes
I'm sorry i'm a noob at R. I've just started learning R for work purpose. I have a dataset which consists of movie name, movie id and the views its got. So three columns - movie_id, movie_name, views. I need to arrange this data set in ascending order of the views, i.e. the movie that has got the least views on the top and the one that's got the maximum views, at the end.

How do I achieve this in R?

Hey @Ali, you can use the dplyr package of R for this purpose. dplyr is mainly used for data manipulation. You can try something like this:

install.packages('dplyr')
library(dplyr)
data <- read.csv("file_path.csv")
name = arrange(nameofdataframe, variable)
view(name)

where variable is the variable which will be used to arrange it in ascending order.

In your case it'll be,

orderedviews = arrange(movie_views, views)
view(orderedviews)
