Extracts and returns statistics from a tbl_summary object for inline reporting in an R markdown document. Detailed examples in the inline_text vignette

# S3 method for tbl_summary
inline_text(
  x,
  variable,
  column = NULL,
  level = NULL,
  pattern = NULL,
  pvalue_fun = NULL,
  ...
)

# S3 method for tbl_svysummary
inline_text(
  x,
  variable,
  column = NULL,
  level = NULL,
  pattern = NULL,
  pvalue_fun = NULL,
  ...
)

Arguments

x

Object created from tbl_summary

variable

Variable name of statistic to present

column

Column name to return from x$table_body. Can also pass the level of a by variable.

level

Level of the variable to display for categorical variables. Can also specify the 'Unknown' row. Default is NULL

pattern

String indicating the statistics to return. Uses glue::glue formatting. Default is pattern shown in tbl_summary() output

pvalue_fun

Function to round and format p-values. Default is style_pvalue. The function must have a numeric vector input (the numeric, exact p-value), and return a string that is the rounded/formatted p-value (e.g. pvalue_fun = function(x) style_pvalue(x, digits = 2) or equivalently, purrr::partial(style_pvalue, digits = 2)).

t1 <- trial[c("trt", "grade")] %>% tbl_summary(by = trt) %>% add_p() inline_text(t1, variable = grade, level = "I", column = "Drug A", pattern = "{n}/{N} ({p})%")
#> [1] "35/98 (36)%"
inline_text(t1, variable = grade, column = "p.value")
#> [1] "p=0.9"
