addSummaryStat {crunch}R Documentation

Add summary statistics to a CrunchCube

Description

Use addSummaryStat() to add a summary statistic to a CrunchCube object. If not otherwise specified, the summary statistic will be mean and be placed at the bottom of the cube. You can change those defaults by passing any value you can use with SummaryStat() (e.g. position, categories, after).

Usage

addSummaryStat(cube, stat = c("mean", "median"), var, margin, ...)

Arguments

cube

a CrunchCube to add stats to

stat

a character with the summary statistic to include (default: "mean")

var

a character with the name of the dimension variable to add the summary statistic for generally the alias of the variable in Crunch, but might include Crunch functions like rollup(), bin(), etc.

margin

which margin should the summary statistic be applied for (used in the cases of categorical arrays where a variable might contribute more than one margin)

...

options to pass to SummaryStat() (e.g., position, after, etc.)

Value

a CrunchCube with the summary statistic Insertion added to the transforms of the variable specified

# `addSummaryStat` returns a CrunchCube that has had the summary statistic
# added to it, so that you can still use the Crunch logic for multiple
# response variables, missingness, etc.
class(pet_feelings)
# [1] "CrunchCube"
# attr(,"package")
# [1] "crunch"

# Since `pet_feelings` is a CrunchCube, although it has similar properties
# and behaviors to arrays, it is not a R array:
is.array(pet_feelings)
# [1] FALSE

# cleanup transforms
transforms(pet_feelings) <- NULL
# add a median summary statistic to a CrunchCube
pet_feelings <- addSummaryStat(pet_feelings, stat = "median", var = "feelings")
pet_feelings
#                 animals
# feelings             cats    dogs
#  extremely happy       9       5
#   somewhat happy      12      12
#          neutral      12       7
# somewhat unhappy      10      10
# extremely unhappy      11      12
#           median       5       5

# additionally, if you want a true matrix object from the CrunchCube, rather
# than the CrunchCube object itself, `applyTransforms()` will return the
# array with the summary statistics (just like subtotals and headings)
pet_feelings_array <- applyTransforms(pet_feelings)
pet_feelings_array
#                 animals
# feelings             cats    dogs

#   somewhat happy      12      12
#          neutral      12       7
# somewhat unhappy      10      10
# extremely unhappy      11      12
#           median       5       5

# and we can see that this is an array and no longer a CrunchCube
is.array(pet_feelings_array)
