svysd: Calculate standard deviations with complex survey data

Description Usage Arguments Details Note See Also Examples

Description

svysd extends the survey package by calculating standard deviations with syntax similar to the original package, which provides only a svyvar function.

Usage

1
2
svysd(formula, design, na.rm = FALSE,
  digits = getOption("jtools-digits", default = 3), ...)

Arguments

formula

A formula (e.g., ~var1+var2) specifying the term(s) of interest.

design

The survey.design or svyrep.design object.

na.rm

Logical. Should cases with missing values be dropped?

digits

An integer specifying the number of digits past the decimal to report in the output. Default is 3. You can change the default number of digits for all jtools functions with options("jtools-digits" = digits) where digits is the desired number.

...

Additional arguments passed to svyvar.

Details

An alternative is to simply do sqrt(svyvar(~term, design = design)). However, if printing and sharing the output, this may be misleading since the output will say "variance."

Note

This function was designed independent of the survey package and is neither endorsed nor known to its authors.
