as.dichotomy: Convert variable (possibly multiple choice question) to...

Description Usage Arguments Value See Also Examples

Description

This function converts variable/multiple response variable (vector/matrix/data.frame) with category encoding into data.frame/matrix with dichotomy encoding (0/1) suited for most statistical analysis, e. g. clustering, factor analysis, linear regression and so on.

is.dichotomy(x)

Arguments

x

vector/factor/matrix/data.frame.

prefix

character. By default "v".

keep_unused

Logical. Should we create columns for unused value labels/factor levels? FALSE by default.

use_na

Logical. Should we use NA for rows with all NA or use 0's instead. TRUE by default.

keep_values

Numeric/character. Values that should be kept. By default all values will be kept.

keep_labels

Numeric/character. Labels/levels that should be kept. By default all labels/levels will be kept.

drop_values

Numeric/character. Values that should be dropped. By default all values will be kept. Ignored if keep_values/keep_labels are provided.

drop_labels

Numeric/character. Labels/levels that should be dropped. By default all labels/levels will be kept. Ignored if keep_values/keep_labels are provided.

presence

numeric value which will code presence of the level. By default it is 1. Note that all tables functions need that presence and absence will be 1 and 0.

absence

numeric value which will code absence of the level. By default it is 0. Note that all tables functions need that presence and absence will be 1 and 0.

Value

as.dichotomy returns data.frame of class dichotomy with 0,1. Columns of this data.frame have variable labels according to value labels of original data. If label doesn't exist for particular value then this value will be used as variable label. dummy returns matrix of class dichotomy. Column names of this matrix are value labels of original data.

as.category for reverse conversion, mrset, mdset for usage multiple-response variables with tables.
