Class "SimDataDist": Data distribution object

Share:

Description

This class will provide the distribution of a dataset.

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by bindDist function. It can also be called from the form new("SimDataDist", ...).

Slots

p:

Number of variables

margins:

A character vector specifying all the marginal distributions

paramMargins:

A list whose each component is a list of named components, giving the parameter values of the marginal distributions.

keepScale:

Transform back to retain the mean and standard deviation of a variable equal to the model implied mean and standard deviation (with sampling error)

reverse:

To mirror each variable or not. If TRUE, reverse the distribution of a variable (e.g., from positive skewed to negative skewed).

copula:

The multivariate copula template for data generation. See bindDist

skewness:

The target skewness values of each variable

kurtosis:

The target (excessive) kurtosis values of each variable

Methods

  • summaryTo summarize the object

  • plotDistTo plot a density distribution (for one variable) or a contour plot (for two variables).
