View source: R/Causation.R

Description

Returns the causality from observational data between two variables.

Usage

1
NNS.caus(x, y = NULL, factor.2.dummy = FALSE, tau = 0, plot = FALSE)

Arguments

x

a numeric vector, matrix or data frame.

y

NULL (default) or a numeric vector with compatible dimensions to x.

factor.2.dummy

logical; FALSE (default) Automatically augments variable matrix with numerical dummy variables based on the levels of factors. Includes dependent variable y.

tau

options: ("cs", "ts", integer); 0 (default) Number of lagged observations to consider (for time series data). Otherwise, set (tau = "cs") for cross-sectional data. (tau = "ts") automatically selects the lag of the time series data, while (tau = [integer]) specifies a time series lag.

plot

logical; FALSE (default) Plots the raw variables, tau normalized, and cross-normalized variables.

Value

Returns the directional causation (x —> y) or (y —> x) and net quantity of association. For causal matrix, directional causation is returned as ([column variable] —> [row variable]). Negative numbers represent causal direction attributed to [row variable].
