transformdata(
  i.data,
  i.range.x = NA,
  i.name = "rates",
  i.max.na.per = 100,
  i.function = NULL
)

Arguments

i.data

Data frame of input data.

i.range.x

First and last surveillance week.

i.name

Name of the column to transform.

i.max.na.per

maximum percentage of na's in a season allowable, otherwise, the season is removed

i.function

function used to aggregate data when duplicate values are found for the same season and week, defaults to NULL (no aggregate function)

Details

Transform data from format year, week, rate to a format suitable to be used with mem, that is, one column with each season in the dataset and the week names as rownames of the data.frame.

Value

transformdata returns a data.frame where each column has a different season and rownames are the name of the epidemiological week.
