numeric_out |
If true, numeric vector is returned. If false, factor is returned. |
Binary categories to convert can be specified with a named character vector,
specified in values
. The syntax of the named vector is:
negative_finding = positive_finding
. If values
is not
provided, the default list will be used: "No"="Yes", "No/unknown" =

parameter is
TRUE
