correlation 0.8.5

CRAN release: 2024-06-16

  • New cormatrix_to_excel() function for exporting correlation matrices to Excel with color formatting.
  • This release changes the licensing model of correlation to an MIT license.

correlation 0.8.4

CRAN release: 2023-04-06

  • Minor improvements and code revisions due to changes in other packages.

  • Default color scheme for correlation matrices switched to use red for negative values and blue for positive values.

correlation 0.8.3

CRAN release: 2022-10-08

Breaking Changes

  • distance_mahalanobis() is deprecated. Use performance::check_outliers(method = "mahalanobis_robust") instead.

  • The minimum needed R version has been bumped to 3.6.

Minor Changes

  • Fixes breakages caused by updates to parameters package (#269).

  • The visualization recipe (plots) for redundant correlation matrices was improved, so self-correlations will no longer be labelled and get a neutral color.

  • The print() method redundant correlation matrices no longer shows the diagonal with self-correlations.

correlation 0.8.2

CRAN release: 2022-08-09

  • Maintenance release for datawizard package update.

correlation 0.8.1

CRAN release: 2022-05-20

  • Maintenance release for datawizard package update.

correlation 0.8.0

CRAN release: 2022-02-14

Breaking Changes

  • robust argument, which was deprecated in favour of ranktransform in 0.6.1 release, has now been removed.

correlation 0.7.1

CRAN release: 2021-10-06

Bug Fixes

correlation 0.7.0

CRAN release: 2021-09-05

Breaking Changes

  • Removes winsorize() function, which now lives in datawizard package.

New Features

  • New cor_smooth() function for smoothing non-positive definite matrices.

Bug Fixes

  • When data2 was specified correlation() was over-correcting for all of the combinations of variables in the full x and y tables, rather than in just the ones specified (#195).

Minor Changes

  • correlation() gains a new argument rename to rename variables.

  • simualte_simpson() function is now re-exported from bayestestR package.

  • plot() for "easycor_test" objects now produces an annotated scatter plot.

correlation 0.6.1

CRAN release: 2021-04-09

Breaking Changes

  • simualte_simpson(): The groups are now named after the pattern "G_" (can be altered with the group_prefix argument).

  • robust argument deprecated in favour of ranktransform.

New Features

  • correlation gains two new arguments: select and select2 to select specific variables from dataframes to compare (#146).

  • as.matrix method works for grouped correlations (#148).

  • New as.list method returns a list of various matrices related to correlation analysis (correlation, number of observations, p-values, etc.).

Bug Fixes

  • The 0.6.0 release introduced a bug in Winsorized Pearson correlation where the missing values were removed from the entire data, instead for each pair (#151). This is now fixed.

correlation 0.6.0

CRAN release: 2021-02-12

New Features

  • Added verbose arguments to some functions, to toggle warnings on/off.

  • cor_test() (and hence, correlation()) now default the winsorize argument to .1 when it’s set to TRUE.

  • The Method column in output dataframe is now more explicit about the correlation method used.

Bug Fixes

  • Winsorization doesn’t fail when NAs are present (#130).

Minor Changes

  • Fixed CRAN check issues due to changes in dependent packages.

correlation 0.5.0

CRAN release: 2020-12-02


  • Added winsorize() function.

  • Added winsorize argument for Winsorized correlations.

  • Added method = "somers" to correlation(), to compute Somers’s Dxy rank correlation for binary outcomes.

  • New function display(), to print output into different formats. Currently, only markdown is supported. print_md() is an alias for display(format = "markdown").

Bug fixes

  • Fix bug in cor_to_p() that gave slightly different test statistics.

correlation 0.4.0

CRAN release: 2020-09-27


  • Don’t error if less than 3 valid observations (#100).

  • Add “gaussian” rank method.

  • Add “gamma” method.

  • Add “hoeffding” method.

  • Add “blomqvist” method.

Bug fixes

  • Added Method column to Bayesian correlations.

  • Fix bug when robust=TRUE (#87).

correlation 0.3.0

CRAN release: 2020-06-19


Bug fixes

correlation 0.2.1

CRAN release: 2020-05-05


  • Added confidence intervals CI support for Spearman and Kendall (#80)

  • Improved documentation (#45, #63)

Bug fixes

correlation 0.2.0

CRAN release: 2020-04-09


  • Some changes were made.

Bug fixes

  • Some bugs were fixed.

correlation 0.1.0

CRAN release: 2020-03-16


Bug fixes

  • Fixed issue in correlation() for some edge cases when include_factors = TRUE.

  • Fixed issue in correlation() for correlation coefficients with less than four complete pairs of observations (in such cases, cor_test() now returns NA for the confidence intervals).
