Hi Lars
I am not very sure what you really want. However, I am suggesting the
following code that enables (1) to obtain the full summary of your data and
(2) retrieve only mean of X values as function of factors f1 and f2.
library(tidyverse)
library(psych)
df <- data.frame(matrix(rnorm(40), 10, 4),
f1 = gl(3, 10, labels = letters[1:3]),
f2 = gl(3, 10, labels = letters[4:6]))
##To get all summary of your data
df%>% gather(X_name,X_value,X1:X4)%>%
group_by(f1,f2,X_name)%>%
do(describe(.$X_value))
##To obtain only means of your data
df%>% gather(X_name,X_value,X1:X4)%>%
group_by(f1,f2,X_name)%>%
do(describe(.$X_value))%>%
select(mean)%>%# You select only mean value
spread(X_name,mean)#
Vincent
