Factors exported from REDCap can be toggled between the coded and labelled values with the use of the attributes assigned to the factors during export.
A factor exported from REDCap. The REDCap type may be radio, dropdown, check, yesno, etc.
Each factor type variable in REDCap is given the attributes
redcapLevels. With these attached to the
vector, switching between the coded and labelled values can be done with
ease. This may be helpful when the coded value has importance,
such as 0/1 for death, or if a yes is worth 6 points (instead of 1).
