Hi evebody!

Im trying to run a scrip of PCA but, in my data frame, i have a lot of dates of soil components with different numbers of repetitions. For example: soil pH, 3 observations for all areas; soil Ds, 4 observations for all areas.

The problem is, when i run the scrip, the variables that no have 4 observation, the Rstudio imputed this 'new four value' with the mean of the observations . I dont want it happen.

What i need to do?

PCA_TOTAL <- read_excel("C:/analises/pca/PCA_total.xlsx")

View(PCA_TOTAL)

df = PCA_TOTAL

res.pca = FactoMineR::PCA(df[,(-1:-5)], graph = FALSE)

Warning message:

In FactoMineR::PCA(df[, (-1:-5)], graph = FALSE) :

Missing values are imputed by the mean of the variable: you should use the imputePCA function of the missMDA package
