get_query_types {CausalQueries}R Documentation

Look up query types

Description

Find which nodal or causal types are satisfied by a query.

Usage

get_query_types(model, query, map = "causal_type", join_by = "|")

Arguments

model

A causal_model. A model object generated by make_model.

query

A character string. An expression defining nodal types to interrogate reveal_outcomes

map

Types in query. Either nodal_type or causal_type. Default is causal_type.

join_by

A logical operator. Used to connect causal statements: AND ('&') or OR ('|'). Defaults to '|'.

Value

A list containing some of the following elements

types

A named vector with logical values indicating whether a nodal_type or a causal_type satisfy 'query'

query

A character string as specified by the user

expanded_query

A character string with the expanded query. Only differs from ‘query' if this contains wildcard ’.'

evaluated_nodes

Value that the nodes take given a query

node

A character string of the node whose nodal types are being queried

type_list

List of causal types satisfied by a query

Examples

model <- make_model('X -> M -> Y; X->Y')
query <- '(Y[X=0] > Y[X=1])'

get_query_types(model, query, map="nodal_type")
get_query_types(model, query, map="causal_type")

# Examples with map = "nodal_type"

query <- '(Y[X=0, M = .] > Y[X=1, M = 0])'
get_query_types(model, query, map="nodal_type")

query <- '(Y[] == 1)'
get_query_types(model, query, map="nodal_type")

# Root nodes specified with []
get_query_types(model, '(X[] == 1)', map="nodal_type")

query <- '(M[X=1] == M[X=0])'

# Helpers

# Examples with map = "causal_type"

query <- '(Y[X=1, M = 1] >  Y[X=0, M = 1]) & (Y[X=1, M = 0] >  Y[X=0, M = 0])'
get_query_types(model, query, "causal_type")

query <- 'Y[X=1] == Y[X=0]'
