varUsed | R Documentation |

Find out which predictor variables are actually used in the random forest.

varUsed(x, by.tree=FALSE, count=TRUE)

`x` |
An object of class |

`by.tree` |
Should the list of variables used be broken down by trees in the forest? |

`count` |
Should the frequencies that variables appear in trees be returned? |

If `count=TRUE`

and `by.tree=FALSE`

, a integer vector containing
frequencies that variables are used in the forest. If
`by.tree=TRUE`

, a matrix is returned, breaking down the counts by
tree (each column corresponding to one tree and each row to a variable).

If `count=FALSE`

and `by.tree=TRUE`

, a list of integer
indices is returned giving the variables used in the trees, else if
`by.tree=FALSE`

, a vector of integer indices giving the
variables used in the entire forest.
