ci_kurtosis | R Documentation |

This function calculates bootstrap CIs for the population kurtosis. Note that we use the version of the kurtosis that equals 3 under a normal distribution, i.e., we are not calculating the excess kurtosis. By default, bootstrap type "bca" is used.

```
ci_kurtosis(
x,
probs = c(0.025, 0.975),
type = "bootstrap",
boot_type = c("bca", "perc", "norm", "basic"),
R = 9999L,
seed = NULL,
...
)
```

`x` |
A numeric vector. |

`probs` |
Lower and upper probabilities, by default |

`type` |
Type of CI. Currently not used as the only type is |

`boot_type` |
Type of bootstrap CI. Only used for |

`R` |
The number of bootstrap resamples. Only used for |

`seed` |
An integer random seed. Only used for |

`...` |
Further arguments passed to |

An object of class "cint", see `ci_mean()`

for details.
