#load the data data(data_MCH2007) #visualize the data str(data_MCH2007) head(data_MCH2007) #check the variables needed for social position coding table(data_MCH2007$iscoR,useNA="always") #Then, you can run the function: data_MCH2007 <- recode_from_ISCO88_to_ISEI( ISCO88=data_MCH2007$iscoR, data=data_MCH2007) #Check the variable created: names(data_MCH2007) head(data_MCH2007) table(data_MCH2007$ISEI,useNA="always")
