R Extract Rows of Data Frame in Range of Values (Example Code)

This tutorial explains how to return only rows in a specific value range in R programming.

Introduction of Exemplifying Data

data(iris)                                               # 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: Conditionally Subsetting Data Frame Based on Range of Values in Variable

iris[iris$Sepal.Length > 5 & iris$Sepal.Length < 5.3, ]  # Subsetting data
#    Sepal.Length Sepal.Width Petal.Length Petal.Width    Species
# 1           5.1         3.5          1.4         0.2     setosa
# 18          5.1         3.5          1.4         0.3     setosa
# 20          5.1         3.8          1.5         0.3     setosa
# 22          5.1         3.7          1.5         0.4     setosa
# 24          5.1         3.3          1.7         0.5     setosa
# 28          5.2         3.5          1.5         0.2     setosa
# 29          5.2         3.4          1.4         0.2     setosa
# 33          5.2         4.1          1.5         0.1     setosa
# 40          5.1         3.4          1.5         0.2     setosa
# 45          5.1         3.8          1.9         0.4     setosa
# 47          5.1         3.8          1.6         0.2     setosa
# 60          5.2         2.7          3.9         1.4 versicolor
# 99          5.1         2.5          3.0         1.1 versicolor
