# Mode: Mode, Most Frequent Value(s)

## Description

Calculate the mode, the most frequent value, of a variable x. This makes mostly sense for qualitative data, at most for x being an integer vector.

## Usage

`Mode(x, na.rm = FALSE)`

## Arguments

x

a (non-empty) numeric vector of data values.

na.rm

logical. Should missing values be removed? Defaults to FALSE.

## Value

Returns the most frequent value. If there are more than one, all of them will be returned in a vector.

`mean`, `median`

## Examples

Run this code
``````# NOT RUN {
# normal mode
Mode(c(0:5, 5))

Mode(5)
Mode(NA)
Mode(c(NA, NA))
Mode(c(NA, 0:5))
Mode(c(NA, 0:5), na.rm=TRUE)
Mode(c(NA, 0:5, 5), na.rm=TRUE)

# returns all encountered modes, if several exist
Mode(c(0:5, 4, 5, 6))

data(d.pizza)
Mode(d.pizza\$driver)

# use sapply for evaluating data.frames (resp. apply for matrices)
sapply(d.pizza[,c("driver","temperature","date")], Mode, na.rm=TRUE)
# }
``````
