addCondition(condDefs, dtOld, newvar, envir = parent.frame())

Arguments

condDefs

Name of definitions for added column

dtOld

Name of data table that is to be updated

newvar

Name of new column to add

envir

Environment the data definitions are evaluated in. Defaults to base::parent.frame.

Value

An updated data.table that contains the added simulated data

Examples

# New data set def <- defData(varname = "x", dist = "categorical", formula = ".33;.33") def <- defData(def, varname = "y", dist = "uniform", formula = "-5;5") dt <- genData(1000, def)
#> Warning: Probabilities do not sum to 1. Adding category to all rows!
# Define conditions defC <- defCondition( condition = "x == 1", formula = "5 + 2*y-.5*y^2", variance = 1, dist = "normal" ) defC <- defCondition(defC, condition = "x == 2", formula = "3 - 3*y + y^2", variance = 2, dist = "normal" ) defC <- defCondition(defC, condition = "x == 3", formula = "abs(y)", dist = "poisson" ) # Add column dt <- addCondition(defC, dt, "NewVar") # Plot data library(ggplot2) ggplot(data = dt, aes(x = y, y = NewVar, group = x)) + geom_point(aes(color = factor(x)))
