Manipulation of categorical data edits and error localization with the editrules package

Analyses of categorical data are often hindered by the occurrence of inconsistent or incomplete raw data. Although R has many features for analyzing categorical data, the functionality for error localization and error correction are currently limited. The editrules package is designed to o er a user-friendly toolbox for edit de nition, manipulation, and error localization based on the generalized paradigm of Fellegi and Holt.
