Description

For building and evaluating species distribution models, the porportion of presences of the species may be issues to take into account (e.g. Jimenez-Valverde & Lobo 2006, Barbosa et al. 2013). The prevalence function calculates this measure.

Usage

1
prevalence(obs, event = 1, na.rm = TRUE)

Arguments

obs

a vector of binary observations (e.g. 1 vs. 0, male vs. female, disease vs. no disease, etc.).

event

the value whose prevalence we want to calculate (e.g. 1, "present", etc.).

na.rm

logical, whether NA values should be excluded. The default is TRUE.

Value

Numeric value of the prevalence of event in the obs vector.
