We don't have data.csv so its still not ***reproducible*** by anyone else. To be reproducible it means that anyone can copy the code in your post, paste it into R and get the same answer.

Suggest you post the output of

   dput(df)

and then post
dput <- ...the output you got from dput(df)...

Now its reproducible.
