normalize_cansim_values {cansim}R Documentation

Normalize retrieved data table values to appropriate scales

Description

Facilitates working with Statistics Canada data table values retrieved using the package by setting all units to counts/dollars instead of millions, etc. If "replacement_value" is not set, it will replace the VALUE field with normalized values and drop the scale column. Otherwise it will keep the scale columns and create a new column named replacement_value with the normalized value. It will attempt to parse the REF_DATE field and create an R date variable. This is currently experimental.

Usage

normalize_cansim_values(
  data,
  replacement_value = NA,
  normalize_percent = TRUE,
  default_month = "01",
  default_day = "01",
  factors = FALSE,
  strip_classification_code = FALSE,
  cansimTableNumber = NULL
)

Arguments

data

(Optional) Logical value indicating if dimensions should be converted to factors. (Default set to false).

strip_classification_code

(Optional) Only needed when operating on results of SQLite connections.

Value

Returns the input tibble with with adjusted values
