Alternative names for miss_var_pct and friends (AKA naming things is hard) #171

At the moment there are four functions that calculate the percent or proportion of variables/cases that have missings. The names are:

  • naniar::miss_var_pct(airquality)
  • naniar::miss_var_prop(airquality)
  • naniar::miss_case_pct(airquality)
  • naniar::miss_case_prop(airquality)

However, in order to make them consistent with n_miss and prop_miss, I think that it might be worth changing the names:

  • naniar::miss_var_pct(airquality)
  • naniar::pct_var_miss(airquality)
  • naniar::pct_miss_var(airquality)

  • naniar::miss_var_prop(airquality)
  • naniar::prop_var_miss(airquality)
  • naniar::prop_miss_var(airquality)

  • naniar::miss_case_pct(airquality)
  • naniar::pct_case_miss(airquality)
  • naniar::pct_miss_case(airquality)

  • naniar::miss_case_prop(airquality)
  • naniar::prop_case_miss(airquality)
  • naniar::prop_miss_case(airquality)

I am going to suggest the following changes:

current_names new_names
miss_case_pct pct_miss_case
miss_case_prop prop_miss_case
miss_var_pct pct_miss_var
miss_var_prop prop_miss_var
complete_case_pct pct_complete_case
complete_case_prop prop_complete_case
complete_var_pct pct_complete_var
complete_var_prop prop_complete_var

and I will soft-deprecate the old names.
