This function draws econfidence ellipses for covariance and correlation matrices derived from from either a matrix or dataframe.

1 2 |

`data` |
A dataframe |

`center` |
2-element vector with coordinates of center of ellipse. |

`radius` |
Use of the Chi or F Distributions for setting the radius of the confidence ellipse |

`scale` |
use correlation or covariance matrix |

`segments` |
number of line-segments used to draw ellipse. |

`level` |
draw elliptical contours at these (normal) probability or confidence levels. |

`plot.points` |
Should the points be added to the graph. |

`...` |
additional arguments. Currently ignored. |

`ellipse`

uses the singular value decomposition in order to generate the desired confidence regions. The default confidence ellipse is based on the chisquare statistic.

Returns a graph with the ellipses at the stated as levels, as well as the ellipse coordinates.
