Usage

hmean(x)

gmean(x)

MAD(x)

fisherskew(x)

pearsonskew(x)

fisherkurtosis(x)

Arguments

x

a vector of numbers, the sample data (mandatory);

Value

a summary statistic describing the sample.

Examples

# the confidence interval of the mean for default 95% and 90% confidence level
gmean( c(1,2,3) )  # the geometric mean; also available in psych::geometric.mean 	
hmean( c(1,2,3) )  # the harmonic mean;  also available in psych::harmonic.mean 	
MAD( c(1,2,3) )    # the median absolute deviation to the median (not the same as mad)
fisherskew( c(1,2,3) )     # the Fisher skew corrected for sample size
fisherkurtosis( c(1,2,3) ) # the Fisher kurtosis corrected for sample size
pearsonskew( c(1,2,3) )    # the Pearson skew
