**What is a reference category in R?**

A ‘reference’ category is so named and identified as a category of comparison for the other categories. In other words, the other categories are compared to the reference. By default R uses the alpha-numerically first category as the reference category (e.g. “a” with letters, “0” with numbers).

**How does R identify categorical variables?**

First, we must understand how R identifies categorical variables. The R language identifies categorical variables as ‘factors’ which can be ‘ordered’ or not. Throughout this article we will be dealing with unordered factors (i.e. strictly discrete categorical variables). The categories of a factor are identified as ‘levels’ of the factor.
