assertr {assertr}R Documentation

assertr: Assertive programming for R analysis pipeline.


The assertr package supplies a suite of functions designed to verify assumptions about data early in an analysis pipeline. See the assertr vignette or the documentation for more information
> vignette("assertr")


You may also want to read the documentation for the functions that assertr provides:


library(magrittr)     # for the piping operator

# this confirms that
#   - that the dataset contains more than 10 observations
#   - that the column for 'miles per gallon' (mpg) is a positive number
#   - that the column for 'miles per gallon' (mpg) does not contain a datum
#     that is outside 4 standard deviations from its mean, and
#   - that the am and vs columns (automatic/manual and v/straight engine,
#     respectively) contain 0s and 1s only
#   - each row contains at most 2 NAs
#   - each row's mahalanobis distance is within 10 median absolute deviations of
#     all the distance (for outlier detection)
