get_denom_corr {COINr} | R Documentation |

## Correlations between indicators and denominators

### Description

Get a data frame containing any correlations between indicators and denominators that exceed a given
threshold. This can be useful when *whether* to denominate an indicator and *by what* may not be obvious.
If an indicator is strongly correlated with a denominator, this may suggest to denominate it by that
denominator.

### Usage

```
get_denom_corr(
coin,
dset,
cor_thresh = 0.6,
cortype = "pearson",
nround = 2,
use_directions = FALSE
)
```

### Arguments

`coin` |
A coin class object. |

`dset` |
The name of the data set to apply the function to, which should be accessible in |

`cor_thresh` |
A correlation threshold: the absolute value of any correlations between indicator-denominator pairs above this threshold will be flagged. |

`cortype` |
The type of correlation: to be passed to the |

`nround` |
Optional number of decimal places to round correlation values to. Default 2, set |

`use_directions` |
Logical: if |

### Value

A data frame of pairwise correlations that exceed the threshold.

### Examples

```
# build example coin
coin <- build_example_coin(up_to = "new_coin", quietly = TRUE)
# get correlations >0.7 of any indicator with denominators
get_denom_corr(coin, dset = "Raw", cor_thresh = 0.7)
```
