# momentALoD: Moments estimation for the quantile-based asymmetric logistic... In QBAsyDist: Asymmetric Distributions and Quantile Estimation

## Description

Mean, variance, skewness, kurtosis and moments about the location parameter (i.e., αth quantile) of the quantile-based asymmetric logistic distribution defined in Gijbels et al. (2019a) useful for quantile regression with location parameter equal to μ, scale parameter φ and index parameter α.

## Usage

 ```1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9``` ```meanALoD(mu, phi, alpha) varALoD(mu, phi, alpha) skewALoD(alpha) kurtALoD(alpha) momentALoD(phi, alpha, r) ```

## Arguments

 `mu` This is the location parameter μ. `phi` This is the scale parameter φ. `alpha` This is the index parameter α. `r` This is a value which is used to calculate the rth moment about μ.

## Value

`meanALoD` provides the mean, `varALoD` provides the variance, `skewALoD` provides the skewness, `kurtALoD` provides the kurtosis, and `momentALoD` provides the rth moment about the location parameter μ of the quantile-based asymmetric logistic distribution.

## Examples
