freR Documentation

Simple frequencies with support of labels, weights and multiple response variables.

Description

fre returns data.frame with six columns: labels or values, counts, valid percent (excluding NA), percent (with NA), percent of responses(for single-column x it equals to valid percent) and cumulative percent of responses.

Usage

fre(
  x,
  weight = NULL,
  drop_unused_labels = TRUE,
  prepend_var_lab = FALSE,
  stat_lab = getOption("expss.fre_stat_lab", c("Count", "Valid percent", "Percent",
    "Responses, %", "Cumulative responses, %"))
)

Arguments

x

vector/data.frame/list. data.frames are considered as multiple response variables. If x is list then vertically stacked frequencies for each element of list will be generated,

weight

numeric vector. Optional case weights. NA's and negative weights treated as zero weights.

drop_unused_labels

logical. Should we drop unused value labels? Default is TRUE.

prepend_var_lab

logical. Should we prepend variable label before value labels? By default we will add variable labels to value labels only if x or predictor is list (several variables).

stat_lab

character. Labels for the frequency columns.

Value

object of class 'etable'. Basically it's a data.frame but class is needed for custom methods.

Examples

data(mtcars)
mtcars = mtcars %>% 
    apply_labels(
        mpg = "Miles/(US) gallon",
        cyl = "Number of cylinders",
        disp = "Displacement (cu.in.)",
        hp = "Gross horsepower",
        drat = "Rear axle ratio",
        wt = "Weight (lb/1000)",
        qsec = "1/4 mile time",
        vs = "Engine",
        vs = c("V-engine" = 0, 
                "Straight engine" = 1),
        am = "Transmission",
        am = c(automatic = 0, 
                manual=1),
        gear = "Number of forward gears",
        carb = "Number of carburetors"
    )

set.seed(123)

# score - evaluation of tested product
score = sample(-1:1,20,replace = TRUE)
var_lab(brands) = "Used brands"
val_lab(brands) = make_labels("
