R How to Convert a Matrix to the data.frame Class (Example Code)

In this tutorial you’ll learn how to switch from matrix to data.frame class in the R programming language.

Creation of Example Data

example_matrix <- matrix(11:30, ncol = 5)            # Creating matrix in R
example_matrix                                       # Showing example matrix in RStudio
#      [,1] [,2] [,3] [,4] [,5]
# [1,]   11   15   19   23   27
# [2,]   12   16   20   24   28
# [3,]   13   17   21   25   29
# [4,]   14   18   22   26   30

Example: Apply as.data.frame() Function to Create Data Frame from Matrix

example_data_frame <- as.data.frame(example_matrix)  # Changing matrix to data.frame class
example_data_frame                                   # Showing data frame in RStudio console
#   V1 V2 V3 V4 V5
# 1 11 15 19 23 27
# 2 12 16 20 24 28
# 3 13 17 21 25 29
# 4 14 18 22 26 30
