recode2 {Ecfun} R Documentation

bivariate recode

Description

Recode x1 and x2 per the lexical codes table.

Usage

recode2(x1, x2, codes)


Arguments

 x1, x2 vectors of the same length assuming a discrete number of levels codes a 2-dimensional matrix indexed by the levels of x1 and x2. If dimnames(codes) are not provided, they are assumed to unique(x1) (or unique(x2)).

Details

1. If length(x1) != length(x2), complain.

2. if(is.logical(x1)) l1 <- c(FALSE, TRUE) else l1 <- unique(x1); ditto for x2.

3. If(missing(codes)) codes <- outer(unique(x1), unique(x2))

4. if(is.null(dim(codes))) dim(codes) <- c(length(unique(x1)), length(unique(x2)))

5. If is.null(rownames(codes)), set as follows: If nrow(codes) == length(unique(x1)), rownames(codes) <- unique(x1). Else, if nrow(codes) = max(x1), set rownames(codes) <- seq(1, max(x1)). Else throw an error. Ditto for colnames, ncol, and x2.

6. codes[x1, x2]

Value

a vector of the same length as x1 and x2.
