eatGADS 1.1.0

CRAN release: 2023-08-25

new features

bug fixes

  • import_spss() now removes duplicate meta data rows, which caused an error in, e.g., recodeGADS()
  • export_tibble() and write_spss() now throw an error if a conversion of four or more discrete missing tags into a missing range has undesired side effects
  • bug fix in checkMissingsByValues(), now correctly reports missing tags outside of the specified value range
  • bug fix in cloneVariable(), now new variables names which are also SQLite keywords no longer throw a error (fixed conflicts caused by checkVarName())

eatGADS 1.0.0

CRAN release: 2023-04-06

new features

bug fixes

  • bug fix in multiChar2fac() for cases with existing value labels (with values labeled greater than zero)
  • composeVar() now correctly prioritizes if both variables have missing values
  • changeMissings() now does no longer add arbitrary value labels for newly tagged values
  • bug fix in checkUniqueness2() for cases with differing numbers of cases per imputed data set
  • bug fix in changeValLabels() for a mixture of already existing and new values
  • bug fixes in import_spss() when setting labeledStirngs = "transform"
  • bug fix in import_spss() for variables with missing tags but no value labels (these missing tags were dropped before)

eatGADS 0.20.0

CRAN release: 2022-06-24

  • extractData() adds now all variable labels as a label attribute to the resulting data.frame
  • a numeric tolerance can now be specified within equalGADS()
  • fixed warnings for getTrendGADS()
  • inspectMetaDifferences() for inspecting meta differences between two GADSdats and a single variable
  • checkUniqueness2() for faster checking if a variable is unique within an identifier variable
  • fixEncoding() for fixing encoding issues caused during the import via import_spss() using ASCII or other encoding
  • composeVar() for combining the information of two variables in a third variable
  • subImputations() now works with differing varName and varName_imp
  • fillImputations() for efficiently filling missing values in imputed variables via not imputed variables
  • checkFormat() now works correctly for variables without value labels
  • checkFormat() now works correctly for variables with purely NAs
  • import_raw() now works correctly if variables are provided as integers
  • reuseMeta() now works correctly if variables occur in multiple sheets in a data base or all_GADSdat
