#' Kendall's tau and ATS line for censored data
#' @description Computes Kendall's tau and the Akritas-Theil-Sen (ATS) line for censored data.  Is called by censeaken because it is much faster than the ATS function.  It is not expected to be of much use to users on its own. The x variable (time) may not be censored.
#' @param y.var The column of y (response variable) values plus detection limits.
#' @param y.cen The y-variable indicators, where 1 (or `TRUE`) indicates a detection limit in the `y.var` column, and 0 (or `FALSE`) indicates a detected value in `y.var`.
#' @param x.var The column of x (time for a trend test) values.
#' @importFrom NADA cenken
#' @return Returns the intercept and slope (ATS line), tau (Kendall's tau), p-value and S-value (test statistic).
