Do any of lvls occur in f? Compared to %in%, this function validates lvls to ensure that they're actually present in f. In other words, x %in% "not present" will return FALSE, but fct_match(x, "not present") will throw an error.

fct_match(f, lvls)

Arguments

f

A factor (or character vector).

lvls

A character vector specifying levels to look for.

Value

A logical vector

Examples

table(fct_match(gss_cat$marital, c("Married", "Divorced")))
#> #> FALSE TRUE #> 7983 13500
# Compare to %in%, misspelled levels throw an error table(gss_cat$marital %in% c("Maried", "Davorced"))
#> #> FALSE #> 21483
# NOT RUN { table(fct_match(gss_cat$marital, c("Maried", "Davorced"))) # }
