vidente is an R package that contains tools to parse and preprocess the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program database. There are other R packages with similar goals, but they're either too limited or too focused in one way of parsing/preprocessing/analyzing SEER data. vidente has been developed to make sure it will be useful to anyone willing to analyze SEER data, regardless of technical knowledge.
These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes. I do not consider it to be ready for production yet, even though I already use it in my analyses.
Download a version of vidente, decompress the compressed file, change into the created directory, and run in your shell:
R CMD INSTALL --preclean --no-multiarch --with-keep.source .
After that, you should be able to load it in R by typing:
You can also clone this repository and run the R command above inside the cloned directory.
