Correlation Data Frame
An implementation of stats::cor(), which returns a correlation matrix in a specific format. See details below. Additional adjustment include the use of pairwise deletion by default.
correlate(x, y = NULL, use = "pairwise.complete.obs", method = "pearson")
a numeric vector, matrix or data frame.
an optional character string giving a
method for computing covariances in the presence
of missing values. This must be (an abbreviation of) one of the strings
a character string indicating which correlation
coefficient (or covariance) is to be computed. One of
This function returns a correlation matrix in the following format:
A tibble (see
An additional class, "cor_df"
A "rowname" column
Standardised variances (the matrix diagonal) set to missing values (
NA) so they can be ignored in calculations.
The main feature is the use of the data frame. This is to make use of data frame manipulation packages like dplyr and tidyr.
