Help with creating dummy variable

As always, screenshots are seldom helpful. Please see the FAQ: What's a reproducible example (`reprex`) and how do I do one? Using a reprex, complete with representative data will attract quicker and more answers.

your_df %>% mutate(fence = ifelse(YEAR < 2014,0,1)) -> your_df
