derive_var_shift {admiral}R Documentation

Derive Shift

Description

Derives a character shift variable containing concatenated shift in values based on user-defined pairing, e.g., shift from baseline to analysis value, shift from baseline grade to analysis grade, ...

Usage

derive_var_shift(
  dataset,
  new_var,
  from_var,
  to_var,
  na_val = "NULL",
  sep_val = " to "
)

Arguments

dataset

Input dataset

The columns specified by from_var and the to_var parameters are expected.

new_var

Name of the character shift variable to create.

from_var

Variable containing value to shift from.

to_var

Variable containing value to shift to.

na_val

Character string to replace missing values in from_var or to_var.

Default: "NULL"

sep_val

Character string to concatenate values of from_var and to_var.

Default: " to "

Details

new_var is derived by concatenating the values of from_var to values of to_var (e.g. "NORMAL to HIGH"). When from_var or to_var has missing value, the missing value is replaced by na_val (e.g. "NORMAL to NULL").

Value

The input dataset with the character shift variable added
