View source: R/auxiliary_functions.R

Description

Function performs Winsor normalization of a supplied vector. Steps: 1. Calcualate top winsor value [(1+winsor_level)/2 quantile], and bottom winsor value ((1-winsor_level)/2 quantile) 2. Each value below bottom winsor value set to bottom winsor value; each value above top winsor value set to top winsor value 3. Transform linearly all the values to [0,1] range

Usage

1
winsor(input_vector, winsor_level = 0.9, only_top = FALSE)

Arguments

input_vector

Vector with values to be Winsorized

winsor_level

Winsorization level. Bottom outliers will be set to (1-winsor_level)/2 quantile and top outliers to (1+winsor_level)/2 quantile.

only_top

If TRUE then bottom values are not Winsorized and the lowest is set to 0.

Value

Vector of numerics within <0,1>.
