ds.quantileMean {dsBaseClient}R Documentation

Computes the quantiles of a server-side variable

Description

This function calculates the mean and quantile values of a server-side quantitative variable.

Usage

ds.quantileMean(x = NULL, type = "combine", datasources = NULL)

Arguments

x

a character string specifying the name of the numeric vector.

type

a character that represents the type of graph to display. This can be set as 'combine' or 'split'. For more information see Details.

datasources

a list of DSConnection-class objects obtained after login. If the datasources argument is not specified the default set of connections will be used: see datashield.connections_default.

Details

This function does not return the minimum and maximum values because they are potentially disclosive.

Depending on the argument type can be carried out two types of analysis:
(1) type = 'combine' pooled values are displayed
(2) type = 'split' summaries are returned for each study.

Server functions called: quantileMeanDS, length and numNaDS

Value

ds.quantileMean returns to the client-side the quantiles and statistical mean of a server-side numeric vector.
