I have four variables with names of cvd75plus, res75plus. Mi75plus and ast75plus.
I want to have a percentage of total admissions for the 75 plus age group. So I combined all the four variables to form a new variable using script as:
I assume this will give me sum of all these variables row-wise.
Now I want to calculate the total %age of hospitaladmissions for 75 plus age group. What should be the command for getting percentage of the whole variable i.e. all75plus.
workdata$pcn75plus<-workdata$all75plus/sum(workdata$all75plus) > View(workdata$pcn75plus) > sum(workdata$pcn75plus)
However, this doesnt seem to be working right. Can someone please provide how to get the percentage for the whole variable?
Thanks in advance
