Eta2: A function to compute adjusted isolation index (Eta2)

Description Usage Arguments Value References See Also Examples

View source: R/SegFunctions.R

Description

The adjusted isolation index is the standardized version of the isolation index, xPx, which controls for the effect of total population structure. Using the approximate version of xPx, the adjusted index is equal to Eta2 (the square of the correlation ratio) which, in the case of the binomial variable, is identical to the square of the mean square contingency coefficient phi. It can be used as a segregation score and varies from 0 (minimum segregation) to 1 (maximum segregation).

Usage

1
Eta2(x)

Arguments

x

- an object of class matrix (or which can be coerced to that class), where each column represents the distribution of a group within spatial units. The number of columns should be greater than 1 (at least 2 groups are required). You should not include a column with total population, because this will be interpreted as a group.

Value

a numeric vector containing the adjusted isolation index value for each group
