Permutation test for same colour join count statistics

Share:

Description

A permutation test for same colour join count statistics calculated by using nsim random permutations of fx for the given spatial weighting scheme, to establish the ranks of the observed statistics (for each colour) in relation to the nsim simulated values.

Usage

1
2
joincount.mc(fx, listw, nsim, zero.policy=FALSE, alternative="greater",
 spChk=NULL)

Arguments

fx

a factor of the same length as the neighbours and weights objects in listw

listw

a listw object created for example by nb2listw

nsim

number of permutations

zero.policy

if TRUE assign zero to the lagged value of zones without neighbours, if FALSE assign NA

alternative

a character string specifying the alternative hypothesis, must be one of "greater" (default), or "less".

spChk

should the data vector names be checked against the spatial objects for identity integrity, TRUE, or FALSE, default NULL to use get.spChkOption()

Value

A list with class jclist of lists with class htest and mc.sim for each of the k colours containing the following components:

statistic

the value of the observed statistic.

parameter

the rank of the observed statistic.

method

a character string giving the method used.

data.name

a character string giving the name(s) of the data.

p.value

the pseudo p-value of the test.

alternative

a character string describing the alternative hypothesis.

estimate

the mean and variance of the simulated distribution.

res

nsim simulated values of statistic, the final element is the observed statistic
