rowsum {base} | R Documentation |
Compute column sums across rows of a numeric matrix-like object for
each level of a grouping variable. rowsum
is generic, with a
method for data frames and a default method for vectors and matrices.
rowsum(x, group, reorder = TRUE, ...) ## S3 method for class 'data.frame' rowsum(x, group, reorder = TRUE, na.rm = FALSE, ...) ## Default S3 method: rowsum(x, group, reorder = TRUE, na.rm = FALSE, ...)
x |
a matrix, data frame or vector of numeric data. Missing values are allowed. A numeric vector will be treated as a column vector. |
group |
a vector or factor giving the grouping, with one element
per row of |
reorder |
if |
na.rm |
logical ( |

other arguments to be passed to or from methods |
The default is to reorder the rows to agree with tapply
as in
the example below. Reordering should not add noticeably to the time
except when there are very many distinct values of group
and
x
has few columns.
The original function was written by Terry Therneau, but this is a new implementation using hashing that is much faster for large matrices.
To sum over all the rows of a matrix (i.e., a single group
) use
colSums
, which should be even faster.
For integer arguments, over/underflow in forming the sum results in
NA
.
A matrix or data frame containing the sums. There will be one row per
unique value of group
.
require(stats) x <- matrix(runif(100), ncol = 5) group <- sample(1:8, 20, TRUE) (xsum <- rowsum(x, group)) ## Slower versions tapply(x, list(group[row(x)], col(x)), sum) t(sapply(split(as.data.frame(x), group), colSums)) aggregate(x, list(group), sum)[-1]
