Get the names of k variables with highest sum of rankings based on the specified importance measures

important_variables(
importance_frame,
k = 15,
measures = names(importance_frame)[2:min(5, ncol(importance_frame))],
ties_action = "all"
)

## Arguments

importance_frame A result of using the function measure_importance() to a random forest or a randomForest object The number of variables to extract A character vector specifying the measures of importance to be used One of three: c("none", "all", "draw"); specifies which variables to pick when ties occur. When set to "none" we may get less than k variables, when "all" we may get more and "draw" makes us get exactly k.

## Value

A character vector with names of k variables with highest sum of rankings

## Examples

forest <- randomForest::randomForest(Species ~ ., data = iris, localImp = TRUE, ntree = 300)
important_variables(measure_importance(forest), k = 2)
#> [1] "Petal.Length" "Petal.Width"
