  • Allow NAs in group vector for i_median_grp()
  • Enable linear interpolation in panel data with impute_panel()
  • Updated documentation on aggregation and imputation functions

COINr 1.1.9

  • Fixed results tables which rounded before converting to ranks, resulting in precision errors

COINr 1.1.8

  • Added possibility to set normalisation parameters in iMeta, added more explanation and examples in the normalisation vignette.
  • Fixed bug correlation directions

COINr 1.1.7

CRAN release: 2023-10-09

I have skipped a number of version number iterations. Here’s what’s changed since last time:

  • Add some helper functions to convert codes to names
  • Add flip axes to bar chart
  • Add option to skip SA address checks
  • Option to use raw data in results tables
  • Small bug fixes
  • Catch more errors on coin construction


Dev version of COINr until next CRAN submission!

  • Treat() now catches errors - data frame/coin/purse methods

COINr 1.1.2

CRAN release: 2023-02-10

Lots of small fixes and feature extensions, including

  • More robust write to log, can deal with COINr::func_Name type calls
  • Catch spaces and numbers in iCodes
  • Tweaks to correlation tables
  • Reordering for correlation plots
  • Better input checks
  • Extra stats
  • Bi-direction log transformation for negative skewed outlier treatment
  • Subgroups of units for bar charts

COINr 1.1

Some new functions and bug fixes:

  • Removed defunct function messages and startup message, defunct functions are now removed from the namespace
  • New get_trends() function for analysing time trends
  • Option to export purse class to Excel
  • Expand unit test coverage to 80%
  • Quite a lot of small bug fixes
  • Improved documentation in many places
  • Improved colouring for some plots
  • Enabled distance to target normalisation plus examples in vignette
  • COINr is now citable by a JOSS paper

COINr 1.0.0

CRAN release: 2022-07-05

Major update to COINr. The main changes are as follows:

  • Syntax changed to be more consistent
  • New streamlined “coin” class replaces older “COIN” class
  • New “purse” class to deal with panel data (time dependent data)
  • Removed interactive functions based on plotly and shiny
  • Much fewer package dependencies
  • Underlying code rewritten to be more robust
  • Improved functionality and flexibility in many functions
  • COINr has been archived as a separate package called “COINr6” - this can be installed to ensure older code will still run.

The full changes are too extensive to write here. See vignette("v1") also available online here for a more complete description of changes.

Note that these changes are disruptive but greatly improve the package and make it more maintainable for the future. This is a one-off major overhaul, after which backwards compatibility will be ensured.

COINr 0.6.2

  • Fixed bug in aggregate() which was wrongly assigning weights in some circumstances (note this is a fairly significant bug - worth re-running your results as it may have affected them)
  • Added colour option to plotframework()
  • Fixed bug in compareDF() (resulting from tibbles vs data frames)
  • Fixed bug in sensitivity() causing trouble with running SA with no weights uncertainty specified

COINr 0.6.1

CRAN release: 2021-11-30

  • Removed dependency on new native pipe so now runs again on R > 4.0

COINr 0.6.0

CRAN release: 2021-11-26

  • New plot function plotIndDot() for plotting single indicators with possibility to label units
  • Added print method for COIN class. More methods to come.
  • Extended support for panel data in assemble(). This can now output multiple COINs structured into a tibble. The idea of working with multiple COINs will be extended in future versions.
  • Improved bug trapping in Winsorisation function
  • Added data availability thresholds during aggregation - see aggregate() function.
  • Better NA colour for plotCorr() plus fixed variable ordering
  • Further colour options in plotCorr()
  • Variable/aggregate ordering in plotCorr() now matches grouping in higher levels
  • Add option to do PCA not in groups in getPCA()
  • Colour options for plotSARanks()
  • Added dominance pairs calculation to ourankMatrix()
  • Stopped max tab length exceeding in Excel export.
  • Online book now pretty much up to date with COINr 0.6.

COINr 0.5.5

CRAN release: 2021-09-16

  • COINr now requires R version 4.0.0 or above - this is following some issues on some distributions during CRAN checks.
  • Improved documentation and bug catching in aggregate()
  • New function replaceDF() which is a simple utility for multiple values in one go for a data frame.
  • New function removeElements() which successively removes indicators or aggregates one at a time and summarises the effects.

COINr 0.5.4

CRAN release: 2021-09-09

  • Fixed various small issues that were flagged by CRAN
  • New function extractYear which allows panel data to be passed to assemble() and (optionally) imputed by latest year.
  • Fixed bug in plorCorr() and getCorr()
  • Changed WorldDenoms data set slightly to only use ASCII coding - this involved unfortunately removing a few accents on country names which is necessary to avoid warning notes when submitting to CRAN.
  • Added goalpost normalisation method, as in European Skills Index
  • Fixed small bug in compareDF()

COINr 0.5.3

CRAN release: 2021-09-06

Fixes following comments from CRAN.

  • Patched up holes in the documentation
  • Function examples now run where possible
  • Shiny apps only run now in interactive mode

COINr 0.5.2

This is the first release submitted to CRAN. Changes include:

  • Documentation has been thoroughly cleaned up, including coherent examples for each function.
  • Small bugs have been checked and fixed.
  • A vignette is now available
