ds = dataset you are currently using.
DV = dependent variable of interest
IV = independent variable of interest
XYXY = dummy name for a variable, matrix, or data frame into which you are moving information.
Extract overall descriptive statistics from a processed set
The cleanest way to get a broad set of descriptives is to use the describe function from the psych package.
“ds[-1]” removes the first column from descriptes. In this case, the subject number. Modify as needed.
“na.rm = TRUE” tells it to ignore missing data.
“type” refers to how skew and kurtosis are calculated.
XYXY <- describe(ds[-1], na.rm = TRUE, type = 2)
You can easily export this information to your working directory using the following command:
write.csv(XYXY, "NameYouWant.csv", row.names = TRUE)
