Replace levels with "other"

fct_other(f, keep, drop, other_level = "Other")

## Arguments

f A factor (or character vector). keep will preserve listed levels, replacing all others with other_level. drop will replace listed levels with other_level, keeping all others as they are. Value of level used for "other" values. Always placed at end of levels.

fct_lump() to automatically convert the rarest (or most common) levels to "other".

## Examples

x <- factor(rep(LETTERS[1:9], times = c(40, 10, 5, 27, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1)))

fct_other(x, keep = c("A", "B"))#>  [1] A     A     A     A     A     A     A     A     A     A     A     A
