Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

View source: R/cvCI.R

Description

This function can be used to compute confidence intervals for the (classical) coefficient of variation.

Usage

1
cvCI(x, conf.level = 0.95, method = "miller", na.rm = FALSE)

Arguments

x

numeric vector.

conf.level

confidence level

method

character string specifing which method to use; see details.

na.rm

logical. Should missing values be removed?

Details

For details about the confidence intervals we refer to Gulhar et al (2012) and Arachchige et al (2019).

Value

A list with class "confint" containing the following components:

estimate

the estimated coefficient of variation.

conf.int

a confidence interval for the coefficient of variation.
