OPHI counting approach
Description
The function implements in a single call the OPHI counting approach. The implementation is limited to ordinal attributes.
Usage
1 2 3 4 5 
Arguments
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. 
Value
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.
