arcsineXform: Arcsine Transformation

Description Usage Arguments Value References Examples

View source: R/normalizations.R

Description

This function transforms the scale, if needed, to values of unity. Then, the data is transformed by taking the arcsine of each value. Per the recommendations of Osborne(2002), data points are left-anchored at 0 to maximize the efficacy of the square-root transformation used enroute to the arcsine.

Arguments

sample
