R Question

This is a basic question for which I am getting the following error.

Error in prop.test: 'x' and 'n' must have the same length

with this code

`cv_MH$pval <- (prop.test(x = c(cv_MH$search, cv_MH$against), n = c(size, size2)))$p.value`

where

`size`

`size2`

This is what

`cv_MH`

`search against`

45 23

384 274

657 883

Basically, I'm trying to create another variable within cv_MH that calculates the p-value.

Thanks.

I think you need to repeat the counts (n) for each value in x. What about this ?

```
cv_MH$pval <- prop.test(x = c(cv_MH$search, cv_MH$against),
n = c(rep(size, length(cv_MH$search)),
rep(size2, length(cv_MH$against))))$p.value
```

x indicates the number of success (events of interest) and n the total number of events... x should have the same length of n, as suggested by your error message
