vidente

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.

Getting Started

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.

Installing

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:

library(vidente)

You can also clone this repository and run the R command above inside the cloned directory.

Contributing

Contributions are very welcomed (more details here) and feel free to reach out by e-mail if you want to discuss something with me.
