Description

Compute Goodman-Kruskal's gamma statistic for a two-dimensional table of ordered categories

Usage

gkgamma(x, conf.level = 0.95)

Arguments

x

A matrix or table representing the two-dimensional ordered contingency table of observations

conf.level

Level of confidence interval

Value

A list with class htest containing the following components:

statistic

the value the test statistic for testing no association

p.value

the p-value for the test

estimate

the value the gamma estimate

conf.int

the confidence interval for the gamma estimate

method

a character string indicating the type of test performed

data.name

a character string indicating the name of the data input

observed

the observed counts

s0

the SE used when computing the test statistics

s1
