We’re delighted to announce that haven 2.1.0 is now on CRAN. haven enables R to read and write various data formats used by other statistical packages by wrapping the ReadStat C library written by Evan Miller. For a full account of updates in this release, see the Changelog.
labelled_spss() now allow
NULL labels. This makes both classes more flexible, allowing you to use them for their other attributes.
labelled() also now tests that value labels are unique.
labelled objects now get pretty printing that shows the labels and
NA values when inside of a
tbl_df. You can turn this behaviour off by using
option(haven.show_pillar_labels = FALSE).
tibble::tibble(s = haven::labelled(c(1, 10), labels = c("A" = 1, "B" = 10))) #> # A tibble: 2 x 1 #> s #> <dbl+lbl> #> 1 1 [A] #> 2 10 [B]
Minor improvements and fixes
This release is updated to the latest version of Evan Miller’s ReadStat, which includes the following changes:
read_por()can now read files from SPSS 25.
read_por()uses base-10 instead of base-30 for the exponent.
read_sas()can read zero-column files.
read_sav()now reads long strings, and has greater memory limit, allowing it to read more labels.
read_spss()reads long variable labels.
write_sav()no longer creates incorrect column names when >10k columns.
write_sav()no longer crashes when writing long label names.
