Description

Compute mid-cumulative probabilities and mid-quantiles

Usage

1
2
midecdf(x, na.rm = FALSE)
midquantile(x, probs = 1:3/4, na.rm = FALSE)

Arguments

x

numeric vector of observations used to estimate the mid-cumulative distribution or the mid-quantiles.

probs

numeric vector of probabilities with values in [0,1].

na.rm

logical value indicating whether NA values should be stripped before the computation proceeds.

Value

An object of class class midecdf or midquantile with mid-cumulative probabilities and mid-quantiles. For midecdf, this is a list that contains:

x

unique values of the vector x at which mid-cumulative probabilities are calculated.

y

estimated mid-cumulative probabilities.

fn

interpolating function of the points (x,y).

data

input values.

For midquantile, this is a list that contains:

x

probabilities probs at which mid-quantiles are calculated.

y

estimated mid-cumulative probabilities.

fn

interpolating function of the points (x,y).

data

input values.
