fix_factors {clickR} R Documentation

## Fix factors imported as numerics

### Description

Fixes factors imported as numerics. It is usual in some fields to encode factor variables as integers. This function detects such variables and transforms them into factors. When drop=TRUE (by default) it detects multiple versions of the same levels due to different capitalization, whitespaces or non-ASCII characters.

### Usage

fix_factors(x, k = 5, drop = TRUE, track = TRUE)


### Arguments

 x A data.frame k Maximum number of different numeric values to be converted to factor drop Drop similar levels? track Keep track of changes?

### Examples

# mtcars data has all variables encoded as numeric, even the factor variables.
descriptive(mtcars)
# After using fix_factors, factor variables are recognized as such.
descriptive(fix_factors(mtcars))
