Hi,

I think I haven't been able to explain correctly what I want. Here another
try:

Given that I have the following input:

userid,track,freq

1,1,1 1,2,10 1,3,1 1,4,1 1,5,15 1,6,4 1,7,16 1,8,6 1,9,1 1,10,1 1,11,2 1,12,2 1,13,1 1,14,6 1,15,7 1,16,13 1,17,3 1,18,2 1,19,5 1,20,2 1,21,2 1,22,6 1,23,4 1,24,1 1,25,1 1,26,16 1,27,4 1,28,1 1,29,4 1,30,4 1,31,4 1,32,1 1,33,14 1,34,2 1,35,7

It is a sample of the history of tracks played: userid,track and frequency.
What I want is to convert the frequency into a rating scale (1-5) based on
the frequency at which a user has played a track, using the following
interquintile ranges for the cfd:

0%-20% = rating 1, 20%-40% = rating 2, .... ,80%-100%=rating 5

Jim kindly provided the following code:

# cheers jim holtman

>x=read.csv(file="C:\\Data\\lastfm\\ratings\\play_history_3.csv",header=T,

sep=',')

*># get the quantiles for each user(we want the frequency distribution to be
*

based on user)

>tq <- tapply(x$freq,x$userid,quantile,prob=c(0.2,0.4,0.6,0.8,1))

*># create a matrix with the rownames as the tracks to use in the
*

findInterval

*>tqm <- do.call(rbind, tq)
**>#now put the ratings
**>require(data.table)
**>x.dt <- data.table(x)
*

>x.new <- x.dt[,list(freq = freq,track=track,rating =

findInterval(freq,tqm[as.character(userid[1L]),], rightmost.closed = TRUE) +
1L),by=userid]

>head(x.new)

userid freq track rating [1,] 1 1 1 2 [2,] 1 10 2 5 [3,] 1 1 3 2 [4,] 1 1 4 2 [5,] 1 15 5 5 [6,] 1 4 6 4

which is almost what I wanted except that the ratings are 1 point higher for
tracks where the frequency is at the cut-off points in the interquintile
range.

To illustrate the quintiles are:

*> tq$`1`
*

20% 40% 60% 80% 100%

1 2 4 7 16

So, ideally I want (note the different ratings):

userid freq track rating [1,] 1 1 1 1 [2,] 1 10 2 5 [3,] 1 1 3 1 [4,] 1 1 4 1 [5,] 1 15 5 5 [6,] 1 4 6 3

Can anybody help me? I'm new to R (as you have probably guessed). Sorry for the long explanation.

Regards

Gawesh
