How to Apply the cumprod() Function in R (Example Code)

In this post, I’ll show how to apply the cumprod function in R.

Introduction of Example Data

data(iris)                                        # Load example data
head(iris)
#   Sepal.Length Sepal.Width Petal.Length Petal.Width Species
# 1          5.1         3.5          1.4         0.2  setosa
# 2          4.9         3.0          1.4         0.2  setosa
# 3          4.7         3.2          1.3         0.2  setosa
# 4          4.6         3.1          1.5         0.2  setosa
# 5          5.0         3.6          1.4         0.2  setosa
# 6          5.4         3.9          1.7         0.4  setosa

Example: How to Use cumprod() Function to Calculate the Cumulative Product of a Data Frame Column

Sepal.Width_cumprod <- cumprod(iris$Sepal.Width)  # Compute cumulative products
head(Sepal.Width_cumprod)                         # Return head of cumulative products vector
# [1]    3.500   10.500   33.600  104.160  374.976 1462.406
