View source: R/misc_dataProcessing.R

Description

Reading of disease data. In the package disease data are saved in a file <abb>.txt containing three columns – the weeknumber (week), the observed number of counts (observed) and a state (state). The data are read using read.table(...,header=T), hence the file has to contain a header.

Usage

1
readData(abb,week53to52=TRUE,sysPath=TRUE)

Arguments

abb

abbreviation of the diseasename.

week53to52

Boolean indicating whether to convert RKI 53 Weeks System to 52 weeks a year

sysPath

Boolean, if TRUE then R automatically looks in the data directory of the surveillance package.

Details

This function is only kept for backwards compability. As of 0.9-2 all data should be read with data.

Value

a disProg (disease progress) object including a list of the observed and the state chain.

#To bring a single vector of counts into a format, which can be
#handled by readData. Assume ``counts'' is a vector of counts.
counts <- rpois(100,20)
counts <- data.frame("week"=1:length(counts),"observed"=counts,
                     "state"=rep(0,length(counts)))
write(c("week","observed","state"),file="disease.txt",ncol=3)
write(t(as.matrix(counts)),file="disease.txt",ncol=3,append=TRUE)
disease <- readData("disease",week53to52=FALSE,sysPath=FALSE)
