group: Group Rankings

Description Usage Arguments Value See Also Examples

View source: R/group.rankings.R

Description

Create an object of class "grouped_rankings" which associates a group index with an object of class "rankings". This allows the rankings to be linked to covariates with group-specific values as the basis for model-based recursive partitioning, see pltree.

group(x, index, ...)

as.grouped_rankings(x, ...)

## S3 method for class 'paircomp'
as.grouped_rankings(x, ...)

## S3 method for class 'grouped_rankings'
x[i, j, ..., drop = TRUE, as.grouped_rankings = TRUE]

## S3 method for class 'grouped_rankings'
format(x, max = 2L, width = 20L, ...)

Arguments

x

a "rankings" object for group(); an object that can be coerced to a "grouped_rankings" object for as.grouped_rankings(), otherwise a "grouped_rankings" object.

index

a numeric vector of length equal to the number of rankings specifying the subject for each ranking.

...

additional arguments passed on to as.rankings by grouped_rankings or as.grouped_rankings; unused by format.

i

indices specifying groups to extract, may be any data type accepted by [.

j

indices specifying items to extract, as for [.

drop

if TRUE return single row/column matrices as a vector.

as.grouped_rankings

if TRUE return a grouped_rankings object, otherwise return a matrix/vector.

max

the maximum number of rankings to format per subject.

width

the maximum width in number of characters to format each ranking.

Value

An object of class "grouped_rankings", which is a vector of of group IDs with the following attributes:

rankings

The "rankings" object.

index

An index match each ranking to each group ID.

R

A matrix with items ordered from last to first place, for each ranking.

S

The rankings matrix with the ranks replaced by the size of the chosen set for free choices and zero for forced choices.

id

A list with elements of the adjacency matrix that are incremented by each ranking.

## by default up to 2 rankings are shown per group, "..." indicates if
## there are further rankings
G
print(G, max = 1)

## select rankings from group 1
G[1,]

## exclude item 3 from ranking
G[, -3]

## rankings from group 2, excluding item 3
## - note group 2 becomes the first group
G[2, -3]

## index underlying rankings without creating new grouped_rankings object
G[2, -3, as.grouped_rankings = FALSE]
