score_simsum(pairs, var = "simsum", by, add = TRUE, na_value = 0, ...)

Arguments

pairs

a pairs object, such as generated by pair_blocking

var

a character vector of length 1 with the name of the variable that will be created.

by

a character vector with the column names from pairs that should be summed. When missing the by attribute from pairs is used.

add

add the variable to the pairs object and return the pairs object. Otherwise, return a vector with the scores.

na_value

the value to use for missing values

...
