Cutting, sorting, rm (removing), rename for data frames

Description

Cut variables, if breaks are given these are used, otherwise cuts into using group size given by probs, or equispace groups on range. Default is equally sized groups if possible

Usage

dcut(
  data,
  y = NULL,
  x = NULL,
  breaks = 4,
  probs = NULL,
  equi = FALSE,
  regex = mets.options()$regex,
  sep = NULL,
  na.rm = TRUE,
  labels = NULL,
  all = FALSE,
  ...
)

Arguments

data

if x is formula or names for data frame then data frame is needed.

y

name of variable, or fomula, or names of variables on data frame.

x

name of variable, or fomula, or names of variables on data frame.

breaks

number of breaks, for variables or vector of break points,

probs

groups defined from quantiles

equi

for equi-spaced breaks

regex

for regular expressions.

sep

seperator for naming of cut names.

na.rm

to remove NA for grouping variables.

labels

to use for cut groups

all

to do all variables, even when breaks are not unique

...

Optional additional arguments

Examples

data("sTRACE",package="timereg")
sTRACE$age2 <- sTRACE$age^2
sTRACE$age3 <- sTRACE$age^3

mm <- dcut(sTRACE,~age+wmi)
head(mm)

mm <- dcut(sTRACE,catage4+wmi4~age+wmi)
head(mm)

mm <- dcut(sTRACE,~age+wmi,breaks=c(2,4))
head(mm)

mm <- dcut(sTRACE,c("age","wmi"))
head(mm)

mm <- dcut(sTRACE,~.)
head(mm)

mm <- dcut(sTRACE,c("age","wmi"),breaks=c(2,4))
head(mm)

gx <- dcut(sTRACE$age)
head(gx)


## Removes all cuts variables with these names wildcards
mm1 <- drm(mm,c("*.2","*.4"))
head(mm1)

## wildcards, for age, age2, age4 and wmi
head(dcut(mm,c("a*","?m*")))

## with direct asignment
drm(mm) <- c("*.2","*.4")
head(mm)

dcut(mm) <- c("age","*m*")
dcut(mm) <- ageg1+wmig1~age+wmi
head(mm)
