Learn how to develop a Table 1 shell formatted for categorical data for later completion as results are obtained for the descriptive analysis.
- [Instructor] Now we begin our descriptive analysis.…Welcome to Chapter Five, Section One,…where we look carefully at the blank…categorical Table 1 that we will be completing.…In this section, I'll start by first explaining…our order of operation, or the big picture process…of how we are going to fill in these Table 1's.…I will explain what I mean by "on stage" and "off stage"…as we complete our Excel spreadsheet.…Next, I will go over the anatomy of Table 1 categorical.…
I'll go over Table 1 continuous in the next section,…because as I said before, they are in a different format.…So let's get started.…So to be honest, it's kind of a convoluted process.…But the big picture of what we're going to do next…is this: first, I made these table shells in Excel.…You guessed it, tables that say what we want to put in them,…but they don't have any numbers there yet.…That way, we can organize what calculations…we need to do in R. Remember, we can do…easy percentages and data editing in Excel.…
So it's nice to do the heavy lifting in R,…
