epitable {epitools} R Documentation

## Create r x c contigency table (exposure levels vs. binary outcome)

### Description

Create r x c contigency table for r exposure levels and c outcome levels

### Usage

```epitable(..., ncol =2, byrow = TRUE,
rev = c("neither", "rows", "columns", "both"))
```

### Arguments

 `...` see details `ncol` number of columns = 2 (default) when a table is constructed from a vector or sequence of numbers `byrow` Default is TRUE and single vector or collection of numbers is read in row-wise. Set to FALSE to read in column-wise. `rev` reverse order of "rows", "colums", "both", or "neither" (default)

### Details

Creates r x 2 table with r exposure levels and 2 outcome levels (No vs. Yes). Arguments can be one of the following:

(1) four or more integers that be converted into r x 2 table (the number of integers must be even),

(2) two categorical vectors (1st vector is exposure with r levels, 2nd vector is outcome with 2 levels),

(3) r x 2 contingency table, or

(4) single vector that be converted into r x 2 table (the number of integers must be even).

The contingency table created by this function is usually used for additional analyses, for example, the `epitab` function.

### Value

Returns r x 2 contingency table, usually for additional analyses.

### Examples

```## single vector
dat <- c(88, 20, 555, 347)
epitable(dat)

## 4 or more integers
epitable(1,2,3,4,5,6)

## single matrix
epitable(matrix(1:6, 3, 2))

## two categorical vectors
exposure <- factor(sample(c("Low", "Med", "High"), 100, rep=TRUE),
levels=c("Low", "Med", "High"))
outcome <- factor(sample(c("No", "Yes"), 100, rep=TRUE))
epitable(exposure, outcome)
epitable("Exposure"=exposure, "Disease"=outcome)

## reversing row and/or column order
zz <- epitable("Exposure Level"=exposure, "Disease"=outcome)
zz
epitable(zz, rev = "r")
epitable(zz, rev = "c")
epitable(zz, rev = "b")

```
