child_census_vectors {cancensus}R Documentation

List all child variables from vector hierarchies given either a list of Census variables returned by list_census_vectors, search_census_vectors, find_census_vectors, or a direct string reference to the vector code.

Description

List all child variables from vector hierarchies given either a list of Census variables returned by list_census_vectors, search_census_vectors, find_census_vectors, or a direct string reference to the vector code.

Usage

child_census_vectors(
  vector_list,
  leaves_only = FALSE,
  max_level = NA,
  keep_parent = FALSE
)

Arguments

vector_list

the list of vectors to be used, either a character vector or a filtered tibble as returned from list_census_vectors.

leaves_only

boolean flag to indicate if only final leaf vectors should be returned, i.e. terminal vectors that themselves do not have children.

max_level

optional, maximum depth to look for child vectors. Default is NA and will return all child census vectors.

keep_parent

optional, also return parent vector in list of results. Default is set to FALSE.

Examples

# Query parent vectors directly using vector identifier
child_census_vectors("v_CA16_2510")

## Not run: 

# Example using multiple vectors coerced into a list
child_census_vectors(c("v_CA16_2510","v_CA16_2511","v_CA16_2512"))

# or, equivalently
selected_vectors <- c("v_CA16_2510","v_CA16_2511","v_CA16_2512")
child_census_vectors(selected_vectors)

# Example using dplyr and piped arguments
library(dplyr, warn.conflicts = FALSE)

list_census_vectors("CA16") %>%
  filter(vector == "v_CA16_2510") %>%
  child_census_vectors(TRUE)

# this will return the equivalent of c("v_CA16_2510", child_census_vectors("v_CA16_2510"))
list_census_vectors("CA16") %>%
  filter(vector == "v_CA16_2510") %>%
  child_census_vectors(TRUE, keep_parent = TRUE)

## End(Not run)
