# Data Transformation in R – How to standardize Data in R

Standardizing data in R is a way to make sure that all the variables in a dataset have the same scale. This is important because some machine learning algorithms are sensitive to the scale of the variables and can perform better when the data is standardized. The process of standardizing data involves subtracting the mean of a variable from each value and then dividing by the standard deviation. In R, you can use the scale() function to standardize data. This function takes a dataset as an argument and returns a new dataset with the standardized values. It’s important to note that before standardizing the data, it’s a good idea to check for missing values and outliers and handle them appropriately. Once the data is standardized, you can use it as input for various machine learning models.
