DLATK's Pandas Interface

Importing a FeatureGetter or OutcomeGetter

The same methods work for both FeatureGetter and OutcomeGetter.

from dlatk.featureGetter import FeatureGetter

fg = FeatureGetter()  # use defaults set in fwConstants.py
fg = FeatureGetter(corpdb="someDB", corptable="someTB", correl_field="someField", ...) # specify values
fg = FeatureGetter.fromFile('/path/to/init/file') # pass values from file

Init file must have the line [constants] at the top. Also note that none of the strings are quoted. For lists (such as lists of outcome variables) use commas to separate values. Sample init file:

[constants]
corpdb = dla_tutorial
corptable = msgs
correl_field = user_id
feattable = feat$1gram$msgs$user_id$16to16$0_01

Getting feature tables as dataframes

fg = FeatureGetter()

fg_gns = fg.getGroupNormsAsDF(where='') # group norms as dataframe
fg_vals = fg.getValuesAsDF(where='')
fg_zgns = fg.getGroupNormsWithZerosAsDF(groups=[], where='', pivot=False, sparse=False)
fg_vgns = fg.getValuesAndGroupNormsAsDF(where='')

Getting outcome tables as dataframes

og = OutcomeGetter()

# outcome table as dataframe
og_vals = og.getGroupAndOutcomeValuesAsDF(outcomeField = None, where='')

# outcome table as dataframe with group freq thresh applied
og_out = og.getGroupsAndOutcomesAsDF(groupThresh = 0, lexicon_count_table=None, groupsWhere = '', sparse=False)

Examples

In these examples the testInitFile is the same as the sample init file above.

Features

from dlatk.featureGetter import FeatureGetter
fg = FeatureGetter.fromFile("testInitFile.txt")

Get group Norms:

fg_gns = fg.getGroupNormsAsDF()
fg_gns.head()
                                            group_norm

fg_zgns = fg.getGroupNormsWithZerosAsDF()
fg_zgns.head()
                                       group_norm

                                 #       0.000000
                                 #12     0.000000
                                 $       0.000000
                                 %       0.000000

Create a pivot table:

fg_zgns_piv = fg.getGroupNormsWithZerosAsDF(pivot=True)
fg_zgns_piv.head()
                                       group_norm

Create a sparse dataframe:

fg_sparse = fg.getGroupNormsWithZerosAsDF(sparse=True)
fg_sparse.density
0.07432567922874671

fg_sparse.head()
                                            group_norm

                                      %       0.000000

Outcomes

Init file:

[constants]
corpdb = dla_tutorial
corptable = msgs
correl_field = user_id
feattable = feat$1gram$msgs$user_id$16to16$0_01
outcometable = blog_outcomes
outcomefields = age, is_education
outcomecontrols = gender

Initialize:

from dlatk.outcomeGetter import OutcomeGetter
og = OutcomeGetter.fromFile('testInitFile.txt')

Get outcomes and controls:

outAndCont = og.getGroupsAndOutcomesAsDF()
outAndCont.head()

          age  is_education  gender
group_id
28451      27           NaN       0
174357     23           NaN       1
216833     24           NaN       0
317581     26           NaN       0
446275     17           NaN       1

outcome = og.getGroupAndOutcomeValuesAsDF()
outcome.head()

         age
user_id
3991108   17
3417138   25
3673414   14
3361075   16
4115327   14

Features and Outcomes in one dataframe

Initialize:

from dlatk.featureStar import FeatureStar
fs = FeatureStar.fromFile('testInitFile.txt')

Get both dataframe with all info:

fAndO_df = fs.combineDFs(fg=None, og=None, fillNA=True)

fg can be either a FeatureGetter or a dataframe with index on group_id. Similarly, og can be either a OutcomeGetter or a dataframe with index on group_id. Alternatively, you can pass nothing to the method, which will return a dataframe with with data from the feature and outcome tables in FeatureStar.

fAndO  = fs.combineDFs() # pass nothing
fAndO  = fs.combineDFs(someFeatureGetter, someOutcomeGetter) # pass objects
fAndO  = fs.combineDFs(someFeatureDF, someOutcomeDF) # pass dataframes
