## Frequency tables

### Description

Function to show frequencies in a manner similar to what SPSS' "FREQUENCIES" command does. Note that `frequency` is an alias for `freq`.

### Usage

```freq(
vector,
digits = 1,
nsmall = 1,
transposed = FALSE,
round = 1,
plot = FALSE,
plotTheme = ggplot2::theme_bw()
)

## S3 method for class 'freq'
print(
x,
digits = x\$input\$digits,
nsmall = x\$input\$nsmall,
transposed = x\$input\$transposed,
...
)

## S3 method for class 'freq'
pander(x, ...)

frequencies(
...,
digits = 1,
nsmall = 1,
transposed = FALSE,
round = 1,
plot = FALSE,
plotTheme = ggplot2::theme_bw()
)

## S3 method for class 'frequencies'
print(x, ...)

## S3 method for class 'frequencies'
pander(x, prefix = "###", ...)
```

### Arguments

 `vector` A vector of values to compute frequencies for. `digits` Minimum number of significant digits to show in result. `nsmall` Minimum number of digits after the decimal point to show in the result. `transposed` Whether to transpose the results when printing them (this can be useful for blind users). `round` Number of digits to round the results to (can be used in conjunction with digits to determine format of results). `plot` If true, a histogram is shown of the variable. `plotTheme` The ggplot2 theme to use. `x` The `freq` or `frequencies` object to print. `...` For `frequencies`, the variables of which to provide frequencies; for the `print` methods, additional arguments are passed on to the `print` function. `prefix` The prefix to use when printing `frequencies`, to easily prepend Markdown headers.

### Value

An object with several elements, the most notable of which is:

 `dat` A dataframe with the frequencies

For `frequencies`, these objects are in a list of their own.

### Examples

```

### Create factor vector
ourFactor <- factor(mtcars\$gear, levels=c(3,4,5),
labels=c("three", "four", "five"));
factorWithMissings <- ourFactor;
factorWithMissings <- factorWithMissings <- NA;

### Show frequencies
freq(ourFactor);
freq(factorWithMissings);

### ... Or for all of them at one
frequencies(ourFactor, factorWithMissings);

```
