Merging and Cleaning the data using R

R is a suitable option to build out of data oriented problems and create a suitable solution irrespective of your coding or business skills.

While using the tool I always make sure to understand the business requirement, the data orientation and plot my need accordingly.

Here is an example of how you can

1.    Merge two datasets

2.    Remove the unwanted columns of the data

Easy and very useful when you are parsing data or scraping data for building clean data frames.

Merging Data libraries


oldAddr = read.csv(





newAddr = read.csv(





Removing the unwanted columns


mydata <- merge(oldAddr, newAddr, by=c(“Name”))

mydata[6:8] <- list(NULL)

write.csv(mydata, “mydata.csv”)

You will find the try data on our Github repository

Feedback and questions are always welcome! Enjoy with R

  16. Thanks for your ideas. One thing I have noticed is the fact that banks along with financial institutions are aware of the spending habits of consumers and understand that plenty of people max out their cards around the getaways. They smartly take advantage of this particular fact and begin flooding ones inbox plus snail-mail box with hundreds of 0 APR card offers right after the holiday season ends. Knowing that when you are like 98 of all American public, you’ll hop at the one opportunity to consolidate consumer credit card debt and transfer balances for 0 interest rate credit cards.
