The indicator functions are supported by 70 support functions. 11 of them directly support the user of
dataquieR (preparation functions) while the others are called by the indicator functions (utility functions).
The graph below illustrates the important role support functions play. Each circle represents a function from the package. An arrow is drawn from one function to some other function, if a function calls that other function.
All functions have prefixes to categorise them. There are prefixes for each data quality dimension (processability, completeness, correctness/consistency, correctness/accuracy). Additionally, there are prefixes for preparation functions and for utility functions.
The table below lists all preparation functions supporting users of the
dataquieR package preparing their data to fit the package’s conventions.
The table below lists all utility functions supporting all other functions of the
dataquieR. The utility functions are intended for internal checks that many functions need.
