So I have a problem that's stumping me. I have one large data frame that is a series of questions. These questions each have a set number of responses. I've manually decided to assign those responses certain numeric values. What I'd like to do now is map those values from one data frame onto the larger data frame. In other words, one question may have five unique answers to which I've assigned five unique numerical values. I'd like to use that key to map onto the larger data frame that may include thousands of those unique responses. Then you'd have a column of strings replaced by numeric values kept in a smaller dataset.
Is this possible or is there another route I should take? Also, haven't posted before so I wasn't sure how to get reproducible results in. I've included screenshots to help.
