Sorts a data set conditionally in a cross table. This can be helpful to get a sense of the time and scope conditions of a data set. Note, if used with a data set that has multiple observations on the id-time unit, the function automatically aggregates this information using the mean.

overview_crosstab(dat, cond1, cond2, threshold1, threshold2, id, time)

Arguments

dat

A data set object

cond1

Variable that describes the first condition

cond2

Variable that describes the second condition

threshold1

A threshold for cond1

threshold2

A threshold for cond2

id

Scope (e.g., country codes or individual IDs)

time

Time (e.g., time periods given by years, months, ...)

Value

A data frame object that contains a summary of the data set that can later be converted to a 'LaTeX' output using overview_print

Examples

data(toydata) overview_crosstab( dat = toydata, cond1 = gdp, cond2 = population, threshold1 = 25000, threshold2 = 27000, id = ccode, time = year )
