Convert Statistical Objects into Tidy Tibbles

Summarizes key information about statistical objects in tidy tibbles. This makes it easy to report results, create plots and consistently work with large numbers of models at once. Broom provides three verbs that each provide different types of information about a model. tidy() summarizes information about model components such as coefficients of a regression. glance() reports information about an entire model, such as goodness of fit measures like AIC and BIC. augment() adds information about individual observations to a dataset, such as fitted values or influence measures.

broom summarizes key information about models in tidy tibble()s. broom provides three verbs to make it convenient to interact with model objects:

  • tidy() summarizes information about model components
  • glance() reports information about the entire model
  • augment() adds informations about observations to a dataset

For a detailed introduction, please see vignette("broom").

broom tidies 100+ models from popular modelling packages and almost all of the model objects in the stats package that comes with base R. vignette("available-methods") lists method availability.

If you aren’t familiar with tidy data structures and want to know how they can make your life easier, we highly recommend reading Hadley Wickham’s Tidy Data.


# we recommend installing the entire tidyverse

If you find a bug, please file a minimal reproducible example in the issues.


tidy() produces a tibble() where each row contains information about an important component of the model. For regression models, this often corresponds to regression coefficients. This is can be useful if you want to inspect a model or create custom visualizations.


fit <- lm(Volume ~ Girth + Height, trees)
#> # A tibble: 3 x 5
#>   term        estimate std.error statistic  p.value
#>   <chr>          <dbl>     <dbl>     <dbl>    <dbl>
#> 1 (Intercept)  -58.0       8.64      -6.71 2.75e- 7
#> 2 Girth          4.71      0.264     17.8  8.22e-17
#> 3 Height         0.339     0.130      2.61 1.45e- 2

glance() returns a tibble with exactly one row of goodness of fitness measures and related statistics. This is useful to check for model misspecification and to compare many models.

#> # A tibble: 1 x 12
#>   r.squared adj.r.squared sigma statistic  p.value    df logLik   AIC   BIC
#>       <dbl>         <dbl> <dbl>     <dbl>    <dbl> <dbl>  <dbl> <dbl> <dbl>
#> 1     0.948         0.944  3.88      255. 1.07e-18     2  -84.5  177.  183.
#> # … with 3 more variables: deviance <dbl>, df.residual <int>, nobs <int>

augment adds columns to a dataset, containing information such as fitted values, residuals or cluster assignments. All columns added to a dataset have . prefix to prevent existing columns from being overwritten.

We welcome contributions of all types!

If you have never made a pull request to an R package before, broom is an excellent place to start. Find an issue with the Beginner Friendly tag and comment that you’d like to take it on and we’ll help you get started.

We encourage typo corrections, bug reports, bug fixes and feature requests. Feedback on the clarity of the documentation is especially valuable.

If you are interested in adding tidier methods for new model objects, please read this article on the tidymodels website.

We have a Contributor Code of Conduct. By participating in broom you agree to abide by its terms.
