How to Construct a Data Frame with Dummy Variables in R (Example Code)

In this article, I’ll show how to initialize a data frame with dummies in the R programming language.

Example: How to Create a Dummy Data Frame

set.seed(2867754)                                            # Setting a random seed
my_df <- data.frame(matrix(rbinom(100, 1, 0.5), nrow = 10))  # Creating dummy data frame
my_df                                                        # Displaying dummy data frame
#    X1 X2 X3 X4 X5 X6 X7 X8 X9 X10
# 1   1  1  0  1  0  1  1  0  1   1
# 2   0  0  0  0  0  0  1  0  1   1
# 3   1  1  0  0  0  0  1  0  1   0
# 4   1  0  1  0  0  0  1  1  0   1
# 5   0  1  0  0  0  0  1  1  1   1
# 6   0  0  1  0  1  1  0  1  0   1
# 7   0  0  1  1  1  0  0  0  0   1
# 8   0  1  1  0  1  0  0  0  0   1
# 9   0  0  1  1  0  0  1  1  0   1
# 10  0  1  1  1  1  0  1  1  0   0
