Description

This helper function computes the percentiles of an archetypoid for a given variable. Once these percentile values have been calculated, they can be represented by means of a barplot.

Usage

1
percentilsArchetypoid(column,indiv,data,digits)

Arguments

column

Numeric variable (column of a data frame).

indiv

A certain archetypoid.

data

Data frame that contains the columns and archetypoids to be analyzed.

digits

Argument of the round function (it is a integer indicating the number of decimal places to be used).

Value

Numerical vector with the percentile values of an archetypoid.

#As a toy example, only the first 25 individuals are used.

#Data preprocessing:

#For reproducing results, seed for randomness:
#suppressWarnings(RNGversion("3.5.0"))

#Run archetype algorithm repeatedly from 1 to numArch archetypes:
#This is a toy example. In other situation, choose numArch=10 and numRep=20.
