Rename and Encode Data Frames Using External Crosswalk Files

A pair of functions for renaming and encoding data frames using external crosswalk files. It is especially useful when constructing master data sets from multiple smaller data sets that do not name or encode variables consistently across files. Based on similar commands in 'Stata'.


crosswalkr 0.2.2

  • encoded vector now output in same class as clean values from crosswalk file; this means that if the raw variable is a character (like state name) and the clean encoding value is an integer (like FIPS code), then the new labelled vector will be an integer class. This is the logical behavior and should work better with transfer to Stata, which only takes labels on numeric classes.
