Time series data

Calculating change from baseline

group_by() + mutate() + ungroup(). We can accomplish the task by using split() + lapply() + do.call().

trial_data_chg <- trial_data %>%
  arrange(USUBJID, AVISITN) %>%
  group_by(USUBJID) %>%
  mutate(CHG = AVAL - AVAL[1L]) %>%
  ungroup()

# If the baseline is missing
trial_data_chg2 <- trial_data %>%
  group_by(USUBJID) %>%
  mutate(
    CHG = if (any(AVISIT == "Baseline")) AVAL - AVAL[AVISIT == "Baseline"] else NA
  ) %>%
  ungroup()

Gapminder dataset

Hands-on R and dplyr – Analyzing the Gapminder Dataset

Install on Ubuntu

sudo apt install r-cran-tidyverse

# Ubuntu >= 18.04. However, I get unmet dependencies errors on R 3.5.3.
# r-cran-curl : Depends: r-api-3.4
sudo apt-get install r-cran-curl r-cran-openssl r-cran-xml2

# Works fine on Ubuntu 16.04, 18.04, 20.04
sudo apt install libcurl4-openssl-dev libssl-dev libxml2-dev

80 R packages will be installed after tidyverse has been installed.

For RStudio server docker version (Debian 10), I also need to install zlib1g-dev

Install on Raspberry Pi/(ARM based) Chromebook

In additional to the requirements of installing on Ubuntu, I got an error when it is installing a dependent package fs: undefined symbol: pthread_atfork. The fs package version is 1.2.6. The solution is to add one line in fs/src/Makevars file and then install the "fs" package using the source on the local machine.

5 most useful data manipulation functions

  • subset() for making subsets of data (natch)
  • merge() for combining data sets in a smart and easy way
  • melt()-reshape2 package for converting from wide to long data formats. See an example here where we want to combine multiple columns of values into 1 column. melt() is replaced by gather().
  • dcast()-reshape2 package for converting from long to wide data formats (or just use tapply()), and for making summary tables
  • ddply()-plyr package for doing split-apply-combine operations, which covers a huge swath of the most tricky data operations

Miscellaneous examples using tibble or dplyr packages

Move a column to rownames

?tibble::column_to_rownames

# It assumes the input data frame has no row names; otherwise we will get
# Error: `df` must be a data frame without row names in `column_to_rownames()`
# 
tibble::column_to_rownames(data.frame(x=letters[1:5], y = rnorm(5)), "x")

Move rownames to a variable

https://tibble.tidyverse.org/reference/rownames.html

tibble::rownames_to_column(trees, "newVar")
# Still a data frame

Old way add_rownames()

data.frame(x=1:5, y=2:6) %>% magrittr::set_rownames(letters[1:5]) %>% add_rownames("newvar")
# tibble object

Rename variables

dplyr::rename(os, newName = oldName)

Drop a variable

select(df, -x) 

Drop a level

group_by() has a .drop argument so you can also group by factor levels that don't appear in the data. See this example.

Remove rownames

tibble has_rownames(), rownames_to_column(), column_to_rownames()

has_rownames(mtcars)
#> [1] TRUE

# Remove row names
remove_rownames(mtcars) %>% has_rownames()
#> [1] FALSE
> tibble::has_rownames(trees)
[1] FALSE
> rownames(trees)
 [1] "1"  "2"  "3"  "4"  "5"  "6"  "7"  "8"  "9"  "10" "11" "12" "13" "14" "15"
[16] "16" "17" "18" "19" "20" "21" "22" "23" "24" "25" "26" "27" "28" "29" "30"
[31] "31"
> rownames(trees) <- NULL
> rownames(trees)
 [1] "1"  "2"  "3"  "4"  "5"  "6"  "7"  "8"  "9"  "10" "11" "12" "13" "14" "15"

[31] "31"

relocate: change column order

relocate()

# Move Petal.Width column to appear next to Sepal.Width
iris %>% relocate(Petal.Width, .after = Sepal.Width) %>% head() 

# Move Petal.Width to the last column
iris %>% relocate(Petal.Width, .after = last_col()) %>% head()

pull: extract a single column

pull()

x <- iris %>% filter(Species == 'setosa') %>% select(Sepal.Length) %>% pull()
y <- iris %>% filter(Species == 'virginica') %>% select(Sepal.Length) %>% pull()
t.test(x, y)

reorder

iris %>% ggplot(aes(x=Species, y = Sepal.Width)) + 
         geom_boxplot() +
         xlab=("Species")

# reorder the boxplot based on the Species' median
iris %>% ggplot(aes(x=reorder(Species, Sepal.Width, FUN = median),
                    y=Sepal.Width)) + 
         geom_boxplot() +
         xlab=("Species")

Anonymous functions

ny <- filter(cases, State == "NY") %>%
  select(County = `County Name`, starts_with(c("3", "4")))

daily_totals <- ny %>%
  summarize(
    across(starts_with("4"), sum)
  )

median_and_max <- list(
  med = ~median(.x, na.rm = TRUE),
  max = ~max(.x, na.rm = TRUE)
)

april_median_and_max <- ny %>%
  summarize(
    across(starts_with("4"), median_and_max)
  )
# across(.cols = everything(), .fns = NULL, ..., .names = NULL)

# Rounding the columns Sepal.Length and Sepal.Width
iris %>%
  as_tibble() %>%
  mutate(across(c(Sepal.Length, Sepal.Width), round))

iris %>% summarise(across(contains("Sepal"), ~mean(.x, na.rm = TRUE)))

# filter rows
iris %>% filter(if_any(ends_with("Width"), ~ . > 4))

iris %>% select(starts_with("Sepal"))

iris %>% select(starts_with(c("Petal", "Sepal")))

iris %>% select(contains("Sepal"))

data.table

Fast aggregation of large data (e.g. 100GB in RAM or just several GB size file), fast ordered joins, fast add/modify/delete of columns by group using no copies at all, list columns and a fast file reader (fread).

Note: data.table has its own ways (cf base R and dplyr) to subset columns.

Some resources:

OpenMP enabled compiler for Mac. This instruction works on my Mac El Capitan (10.11.6) when I need to upgrade the data.table version from 1.11.4 to 1.11.6.

Benchmark

An evolution of reshape2. It's designed specifically for data tidying (not general reshaping or aggregating) and works well with dplyr data pipelines.

Make wide tables long with gather() (see 6.3.1 of Efficient R Programming)

library(tidyr)
library(efficient)
data(pew) # wide table
dim(pew) # 18 x 10,  (religion, '<$10k', '$10--20k', '$20--30k', ..., '>150k') 
pewt <- gather(data = pew, key = Income, value = Count, -religion)
dim(pew) # 162 x 3,  (religion, Income, Count)

args(gather)
# function(data, key, value, ..., na.rm = FALSE, convert = FALSE, factor_key = FALSE)

where the three arguments of gather() requires:

  • data: a data frame in which column names will become row values. If the data is a matrix, use %>% as.data.frame() beforehand.
  • key: the name of the categorical variable into which the column names in the original datasets are converted.
  • value: the name of cell value columns

In this example, the 'religion' column will not be included (-religion).

dplyr, plyr packages

  • plyr package suffered from being slow in some cases. dplyr addresses this by porting much of the computation to C++. Another additional feature is the ability to work with data stored directly in an external database. The benefits of doing this are the data can be managed natively in a relational database, queries can be conducted on that database, and only the results of query returned.
  • Essential functions: 3 rows functions, 3 column functions and 1 mixed function.

  • These functions works on data frames and tibble objects. Note stats package also has a filter() function for time series data. If we have not loaded the dplyr package, the filter() function below will give an error (count() also is from dplyr).
iris %>% filter(Species == "setosa") %>% count()
head(iris %>% filter(Species == "setosa") %>% arrange(Sepal.Length))
  • dplyr tutorial from PH525x series (Biomedical Data Science by Rafael Irizarry and Michael Love). For select() function, some additional options to select columns based on a specific criteria include
    • start_with()/ ends_with() = Select columns that start/end with a character string
    • contains() = Select columns that contain a character string
    • matches() = Select columns that match a regular expression
    • one_of() = Select columns names that are from a group of names
  • Data Transformation in the book R for Data Science. Five key functions in the dplyr package:
# filter
jan1 <- filter(flights, month == 1, day == 1)
filter(flights, month == 11 | month == 12)
filter(flights, arr_delay <= 120, dep_delay <= 120)
df <- tibble(x = c(1, NA, 3))
filter(df, x > 1)
filter(df, is.na(x) | x > 1)

# arrange
arrange(flights, year, month, day)

  • the dot.
    matrix(rnorm(12),4, 3) %>% .[1:2, 1:2]
    

select()

Select columns from a data frame

select() + everything()

If we want one particular column (say the dependent variable y) to appear first or last in the dataset. We can use the everything().

iris %>% select(Species, everything()) %>% head()
iris %>% select(-Species, everything()) %>% head() # put Species to the last col

Split Data Frame Variable into Multiple Columns in R (3 Examples)

Three ways:

x <- c("a-1", "b-2", "c-3")

stringr::str_split_fixed(x, "-", 2)
#      [,1] [,2]
# [1,] "a"  "1" 
# [2,] "b"  "2" 
# [3,] "c"  "3" 

tidyr::separate(data.frame(x), x, c('x1', 'x2'), "-")
   # The first argument must be a data frame
   # The 2nd argument is the column names
#   x1 x2
# 1  a  1
# 2  b  2
# 3  c  3

x %>% f(y) %>% g(z)  #  g(f(x, y), z)

x %>% select(which(colSums(!is.na(.))>0))  # remove columns with all missing data

  filter(grepl("g", Country)) %>%
  group_by(Year) %>%

diamonds2 <- diamonds %>% dplyr::mutate(price_per_carat = price / carat)

pryr::object_size(diamonds2)
pryr::object_size(diamonds, diamonds2)

rnorm(100) %>% matrix(ncol = 2) %>% plot() %>% str()
rnorm(100) %>% matrix(ncol = 2) %T>% plot() %>% str() # 'tee' pipe
    # %T>% works like %>% except that it returns the lefthand side (rnorm(100) %>% matrix(ncol = 2))  
    # instead of the righthand side.

# If a function does not have a data frame based api, you can use %$%.
# It explodes out the variables in a data frame.
mtcars %$% cor(disp, mpg) 

# For assignment, magrittr provides the %<>% operator
mtcars <- mtcars %>% transform(cyl = cyl * 2) # can be simplified by
mtcars %<>% transform(cyl = cyl * 2)

Upsides of using magrittr: no need to create intermediate objects, code is easy to read.

When not to use the pipe

  • your pipes are longer than (say) 10 steps
  • you have multiple inputs or outputs
  • Functions that use the current environment: assign(), get(), load()
  • Functions that use lazy evaluation: tryCatch(), try()

Dollar sign .$

%$%

Expose the names in lhs to the rhs expression. This is useful when functions do not have a built-in data argument.

lhs %$% rhs
# lhs:	A list, environment, or a data.frame.
# rhs: An expression where the names in lhs is available.

iris %>%
  subset(Sepal.Length > mean(Sepal.Length)) %$%
  cor(Sepal.Length, Sepal.Width)

purrr: : Functional Programming Tools

While there is nothing fundamentally wrong with the base R apply functions, the syntax is somewhat inconsistent across the different apply functions, and the expected type of the object they return is often ambiguous (at least it is for sapply…). See Learn to purrr.

  • What does the tilde mean in this context of R code, What is meaning of first tilde in purrr::map
  • Getting started with the purrr package in R, especially the map() and map_df() functions.
    library(purrr)
    # map() is a replacement of lapply()
    # lapply(dat, function(x) mean(x$Open))
    map(dat, function(x)mean(x$Open))  
    
    # map allows us to bypass the function function. 
    # Using a tilda (~) in place of function and a dot (.) in place of x
    map(dat, ~mean(.$Open))
    
    # map allows you to specify the structure of your output.
    map_dbl(dat, ~mean(.$Open))
    
    # map2() is a replacement of mapply()
    # mapply(function(x,y)plot(x$Close, type = "l", main = y), x = dat, y = stocks)
    map2(dat, stocks, ~plot(.x$Close, type="l", main = .y))
    
data <- map(paths, read.csv)
data <- map_dfr(paths, read.csv, id = "path")

out1 <- mtcars %>% map_dbl(mean, na.rm = TRUE)
out2 <- mtcars %>% map_dbl(median, na.rm = TRUE)
  • Learn to purrr. Lots of good information like tilde-dot is a shorthand for functions.
    function(x) {
      x + 10
    }
    # is the same as
    ~{.x + 10}
    
    map_dbl(c(1, 4, 7), ~{.x + 10})
    
  • A closer look at replicate() and purrr::map() for simulations
    twogroup_fun = function(nrep = 10, b0 = 5, b1 = -2, sigma = 2) {
         ngroup = 2
         group = rep( c("group1", "group2"), each = nrep)
         eps = rnorm(ngroup*nrep, 0, sigma)
         growth = b0 + b1*(group == "group2") + eps
         growthfit = lm(growth ~ group)
         growthfit
    }
    sim_lm = replicate(5, twogroup_fun(), simplify = FALSE )
    str(sim_lm, max.level = 1)
    
    map_dbl(sim_lm, ~summary(.x)$r.squared)
    # Same as function(x) {} style
    map_dbl(sim_lm, function(x) summary(x)$r.squared)
    # Same as sapply()
    sapply(sim_lm, function(x) summary(x)$r.squared)
    map_dfr(sim_lm, broom::tidy, .id = "model")
