errors(x)

errors_max(x)

errors_min(x)

errors(x) <- value

set_errors(x, value = 0)

as.errors(x, value = 0)

Arguments

x

a numeric object, or object of class errors.

value

a numeric vector of length 1 or the same length as x.

Details

`errors<-` sets the uncertainty values (and converts x into an object of class errors). set_errors is a pipe-friendly version of `errors<-` and returns an object of class errors. as.errors is an alias for set_errors.

See correl on how to handle correlations between pairs of variables.

Value

errors returns a vector of uncertainty. errors_max (errors_min) returns the values plus (minus) the uncertainty.
