Classification of a matrix to 0 and 1 matrix

4 views (last 30 days)
Hello everyone,
I want matrix A to be like matrix B
ID, age and sex groups are repeated in matrix A. Matrix B is classified age based on the sex group with counting the value from matrix A. if any value in any group was repeated more than 1, then total will appear in matrix B. For example, in matrix A: ID=5, Age group=2, Sex group=2--->Then in matrix B: the value (4,5) is equal by 2

Assuming A and B are numerical arrays arranged as shown in your diagram,
B = accumarray([2*A(:,2)+A(:,3)-2,A(:,1)],1,[2*max(A(:,2)),max(A(:,1))]);

For the second version, just interchange the first and second columns in the formula:
B = accumarray([2*A(:,1)+A(:,3)-2,A(:,2)],1,[2*max(A(:,1)),max(A(:,2))]);

A = [1,7,1 ; 2,2,1 ; 2,4,2 ; 3,13,2 ; 3,11,2 ; 4,6,2 ; 5,2,2 ; 5,2,2 ; 5,9,1 ; 6,7,1 ; 6,10,2 ; 7,8,1 ; 7,6,2 ; 7,6,2 ; 7,6,1 ; 7,1,1 ; 7,12,2];
% If A is as above:
nID = 7 ;
nAge = 13 ;
nSex = 2 ;
B = reshape(accumarray(A(:,[3 2 1]),1,[nSex nAge nID]) ,[],nID)

I would first create a matrix Btemp of size max(AgeGroup) by max(ID) by max(SexGroup) full of zeros. then do a loop for each row of A to add Btemp(AgeGroup,ID,SexGroup) with 1; after you loop for each row of A then make your B matrix by stagering both sexgroup
Air coding so pardon any syntax mistakes:
Btemp = zeros(max(A(:,2)),max(A(:,1)),max(A(:,3))); %create all zeros
%add 1 for each instance listed in matrix A.
for row=1:size(A,1)
Btemp(A(row,2),A(row,1),A(row,3)) = Btemp(A(row,2),A(row,1),A(row,3))+1;
%every other row (even and odd) are the sexgroups. sexgroup1 is 1,3,5.... sexgroup2 is 2,4,6...
B(1:2:end,:) = Btemp(:,:,1);
B(2:2:end,:) = Btemp(:,:,2);
i think that should do it. or at least gives you a good starting point to correct my 5 min code.

i got lazy and all you needed to do was switch out AgeGroup and ID with A(:,2) and A(:,3)
