Check Range Consistency


check_range creates a specification of a recipe check that will check if the range of a numeric variable changed in the new data.


  role = NA,
  skip = FALSE,
  trained = FALSE,
  slack_prop = 0.05,
  warn = FALSE,
  lower = NULL,
  upper = NULL,
  id = rand_id("range_check_")



A recipe object. The check will be added to the sequence of operations for this recipe.


One or more selector functions to choose variables for this check. See selections() for more details.


Not used by this check since no new variables are created.


A logical. Should the check be skipped when the recipe is baked by bake()? While all operations are baked when prep() is run, some operations may not be able to be conducted on new data (e.g. processing the outcome variable(s)). Care should be taken when using skip = TRUE as it may affect the computations for subsequent operations.


A logical for whether the selectors in ... have been resolved by prep().


The allowed slack as a proportion of the range of the variable in the train set.


If TRUE the check will throw a warning instead of an error when failing.


A named numeric vector of minimum values in the train set. This is NULL until computed by prep().


A named numeric vector of maximum values in the train set. This is NULL until computed by prep().


A character string that is unique to this check to identify it.


The amount of slack that is allowed is determined by the slack_prop. This is a numeric of length one or two. If of length one, the same proportion will be used at both ends of the train set range. If of length two, its first value is used to compute the allowed slack at the lower end, the second to compute the allowed slack at the upper end.


An updated version of recipe with the new check added to the sequence of any existing operations.


When you tidy() this check, a tibble with columns terms (the selectors or variables selected) and value (the means) is returned.

slack_df <- data_frame(x = 0:100)
slack_new_data <- data_frame(x = -10:110)

# this will fail the check both ends
## Not run: 
recipe(slack_df) %>%
  check_range(x) %>%
  prep() %>%

## End(Not run)

# this will fail the check only at the upper end
## Not run: 
recipe(slack_df) %>%
  check_range(x, slack_prop = c(0.1, 0.05)) %>%
  prep() %>%

## End(Not run)

# give a warning instead of an error
## Not run: 
recipe(slack_df) %>%
  check_range(x, warn = TRUE) %>%
  prep() %>%

## End(Not run)
