y 
matrix of profiles, it can be substituted by an object of class 
z 
vector of attribute cutoffs. 
w 
variables weights. 
k 
overall cutoff. 
freq 
profiles frequencies, if 
... 
any of the above. 
An object of S3 class ophi
containing all the outputs related to the OPHI counting approach. The object is a list
with the following arguments
y 
matrix of profiles, 
freq 
profile frequencies, 
d 
number of variables 
n 
number of observations (sun of frequencies), 
z 
vector of cutoffs, 
k 
overall cutoff, 
rho 
function comparing profiles with the vector of cutoffs, 
rho_k 
function comparing profiles with the overall cutoff, by weighting variables, 
g0 
profilevariable matrix reporting the output of function

c 
censored vector of deprivation counts, 
Z_k 
a boolean vector identifying deprived profiles, according to specified cutoffs, 
q 
number of poor statstical units in the population, 
H 
headcount ratio, i.e. of 
A 
average deprivation share, 
M0 
adjusted headcount ratio.
