Removes labels, leaving unlabelled vectors as is. Use this if you want to simply drop all labels from a data frame. Zapping labels from labelled_spss() also removes user-defined missing values, replacing all with NAs.

This function removes value labels; use zap_label() to remove variable labels.

zap_labels(x)

Arguments

x

A vector or data frame

Examples

x1 <- labelled(1:5, c(good = 1, bad = 5))
x1
#> <labelled<integer>[5]>
#> [1] 1 2 3 4 5
#> 
#> Labels:
#>  value label
#>      1  good
#>      5   bad
zap_labels(x1)
#> [1] 1 2 3 4 5

x2 <- labelled_spss(c(1:4, 9), c(good = 1, bad = 5), na_values = 9)
x2
#> <labelled_spss<double>[5]>
#> [1] 1 2 3 4 9
#> Missing values: 9
#> 
#> Labels:
#>  value label
#>      1  good
#>      5   bad
zap_labels(x2)
#> [1]  1  2  3  4 NA

# zap_labels also works with data frames
df <- tibble::tibble(x1, x2)
df
#> # A tibble: 5 × 2
#>          x1        x2
#>   <int+lbl> <dbl+lbl>
#> 1  1 [good]  1 [good]
#> 2  2         2       
#> 3  3         3       
#> 4  4         4       
#> 5  5 [bad]   9 (NA)  
zap_labels(df)
#> # A tibble: 5 × 2

#> 2     2     2
