 seqstatf R Documentation

## State frequencies in the whole sequence data set

### Description

Overall frequency of each state of the alphabet in the state sequence object.

### Usage

``````seqstatf(seqdata, weighted = TRUE, with.missing=FALSE)
``````

### Arguments

 `seqdata` a sequence object as defined by the `seqdef` function. `weighted` Logical. Should frequencies account for weights when present in the state sequence object (see `seqdef`). Default is `TRUE`. `with.missing` Logical. Should non void missing states be treated as regular values? Default is `FALSE`.

### Details

The `seqstatf` function computes the (weighted) count and frequency of each state of the alphabet in `seqdata`, i.e., the (weighted) sum of the occurrences of a state in `seqdata`.

### Value

A data frame with as many rows as states in the alphabet and two columns, one for the count (Freq) and one for the percentage frequencies (Percent).

### Author(s)

`seqstatd` for the state distribution by time point (position), `seqistatd` for the state distribution within each sequence.

### Examples

``````## Creating a sequence object from the actcal data set
data(actcal)
actcal.lab <- c("> 37 hours", "19-36 hours", "1-18 hours", "no work")
actcal.seq <- seqdef(actcal, 13:24, labels=actcal.lab)

## States frequencies
seqstatf(actcal.seq)

## Example with weights
data(ex1)
ex1.seq <- seqdef(ex1, 1:13, weights=ex1\$weights)

## Unweighted
seqstatf(ex1.seq, weighted=FALSE)

## Weighted
seqstatf(ex1.seq, weighted=TRUE)
``````
