Handle data in formats used by cancer centers in Sweden, both from 'INCA' (< https://rcc.incanet.se>) and by the older register platform 'Rockan'. All variables are coerced to suitable classes based on their format. Dates (from various formats such as with missing month or day, with or without century prefix or with just a week number) are all recognized as dates and coerced to the ISO 8601 standard (Y-m-d). Boolean variables (internally stored either as 0/1 or "True"/"False"/blanks when exported) are coerced to logical. Variable names ending in '_Beskrivning' and '_Varde' will be character, and 'PERSNR' will be coerced (if possible) to a valid personal identification number 'pin' (by the 'sweidnumbr' package). The package also allow the user to interactively choose if a variable should be coerced into a potential format even though not all of its values might conform to the recognized pattern. It also contain a caching mechanism in order to temporarily store data sets with its newly decided formats in order to not rerun the identification process each time. The package also include a mechanism to aid the documentation process connected to projects build on data from 'INCA'. From version 0.7, some general help functions are also included, as previously found in the 'rccmisc' package.
The goal of incadata is to provide basic functionality to handle data from INCA and the Regional cancer centers in Sweden.
You can install the released version of incadata from CRAN with:
And the development version from BitBucket with:
as.incadata standardize data from INCA and Rockan:
c(0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0), but coerced to character when exported:
c(NA, "True", NA, "True", NA, NA). The package recognise this peculiarity and coerce to Boolean.
idcolumn is always added to data frames in order to always have an identification variable at hand (regardless if the data has none or one of "PERSNR", "PNR" or "PAT_ID")
The package also provides functionality for easier access and archiving of register documentation (se vignette "incadoc") and function
The package also lets you ...
