fct_count(gss_cat$partyid)
#> # A tibble: 10 × 2 #> f n #> <fctr> <int> #> 1 No answer 154 #> 2 Don't know 1 #> 3 Other party 393 #> 4 Strong republican 2314 #> 5 Not str republican 3032 #> 6 Ind,near rep 1791 #> 7 Independent 4119 #> 8 Ind,near dem 2499 #> 9 Not str democrat 3690 #> 10 Strong democrat 3490
partyid2 <- fct_collapse(gss_cat$partyid, missing = c("No answer", "Don't know"), other = "Other party", rep = c("Strong republican", "Not str republican"), ind = c("Ind,near rep", "Independent", "Ind,near dem"), dem = c("Not str democrat", "Strong democrat") ) fct_count(partyid2)
#> # A tibble: 5 × 2 #> f n #> <fctr> <int> #> 1 missing 155 #> 2 other 393 #> 3 rep 5346 #> 4 ind 8409 #> 5 dem 7180
