Common Arguments to redist Functions

library(redist)
data(iowa)
iowa_map <- redist_map(iowa, existing_plan = cd_2010, total_pop = pop)

• Definition: An adjacency list that is represented by a list with one entry for each redistricting unit in a map, where each entry is an integer vector of adjacent units.

• Deprecated alternative arguments: adjacency, adj.list, adj.obj, adjlist

• Example:

# Standard eval -
# tidy eval -

#> [[1]]
#> [1]  1 14 38 60 87
#>
#> [[2]]
#> [1]  0 14 68 86 87
#>
#> [[3]]
#> [1] 21 95
#>
#> [[4]]
#> [1] 25 67 92
#>
#> [[5]]
#> [1] 13 14 38 82
#>
#> [[6]]
#> [1]  6  9 47 56 85
# Plot it!
redist.plot.adj(shp = iowa_map)

ndists

• Definition: The number of districts in a plan, a positive integer

• Deprecated alternative arguments: Ndistrict, n_dists

• Example:

# Standard eval -
ndists <- 4
# tidy eval - stored within redist_map object
attr(iowa_map, 'ndists')
#> [1] 4

nsims

• Definition: The number of simulations to run. This is a positive integer.

• Deprecated alternative arguments: nsamp

• Example:

nsims <- 100

pop_tol

• Definition: The maximum symmetric deviation from perfect population parity allowed. This is a positive numeric.

• Deprecated alternative arguments: thresh, popcons, pop_constraint

• Example:

# standard eval -
pop_tol <- 0.01

# tidy eval - stored within redist_map object
# - getting
get_pop_tol(iowa_map)
#> [1] 5.350657e-05
# - setting
iowa_map <- set_pop_tol(iowa_map, pop_tol = 0.01)

plan

• Definition: A one-dimensional array of district assignments with one for each redistricting unit, typically numbered 1:ndists, though sometimes 0:(ndists - 1)

• Deprecated alternative arguments: district_membership

• Example:

sim <- redist.rsg(adj = adj, total_pop = iowa$pop, ndists = 4, pop_tol = 0.01) #> #> ==================== #> redist.rsg(): Automated Redistricting Starts #> #> #> 4 districts built using 99 precincts in 0.08 seconds... head(sim$plan)
#> [1] 1 4 3 1 4 3

plans

• Definition: A two-dimensional array of district assignments, where each column is a plan.

• Deprecated alternative arguments: partitions, district_membership, districts, cdvec

• Example:

sims <- redist_smc(map = iowa_map, nsims = 10, silent = TRUE)
plans <- get_plans_matrix(sims)
