cube-computing {crunch}R Documentation

Work with CrunchCubes, MultitableResults, and TabBookResults

Description

These functions provide an interface like base::margin.table() and base::prop.table() for the CrunchCube object. CrunchCubes contain richer metadata than standard R array objects, and they also conceal certain complexity in the data structures from the user. In particular, multiple-response variables are generally represented as single dimensions in result tables, but in the actual data, they may comprise two dimensions. These methods understand the subtleties in the Crunch data types and correctly compute margins and percentages off of them.

Usage

margin.table(x, margin = NULL)

prop.table(x, margin = NULL)

bases(x, margin = NULL)

## S4 method for signature 'CrunchCube'
prop.table(x, margin = NULL)

## S4 method for signature 'CrunchCube'
round(x, digits = 0)

## S4 method for signature 'CrunchCube'
bases(x, margin = NULL)

## S4 method for signature 'CrunchCube'
margin.table(x, margin = NULL)

## S4 method for signature 'MultitableResult'
prop.table(x, margin = NULL)

## S4 method for signature 'TabBookResult'
prop.table(x, margin = NULL)

## S4 method for signature 'TabBookResult'
bases(x, margin = NULL)

## S4 method for signature 'MultitableResult'
bases(x, margin = NULL)

Arguments

x

a CrunchCube

margin

index, or vector of indices to generate margin for. See base::prop.table(). bases() accepts 0 as an additional valid value for margin, which yields the unweighted counts for the query.

digits

For round, the number of decimal places to round to. See base::round()

Details

These functions also generalize to MultitableResults and TabBookResults, which are returned from a tabBook() request. When called on one of those objects, they effectively apply over each CrunchCube contained in them.

bases is an additional method for CrunchCubes. When making weighted requests, bases allows you to access the unweighted counts for every cell in the resulting table (array). The bases function takes a "margin" argument to work like margin.table, or with margin=0 gives all cell counts.

Value

When called on CrunchCubes, these functions return an array. Calling prop.table on a MultitableResult returns a list of prop.tables of the CrunchCubes it contains. Likewise, prop.table on a TabBookResult returns a list of lists of prop.tables.
