Calculate skew and kurtosis

Description

Calculate skew and kurtosis, standard errors for both, and the estimates divided by two times the standard error. If this latter quantity exceeds an absolute value of 1, the skew/kurtosis is significant. With very large sample sizes, significant skew/kurtosis is common.

Usage

skew_kurtosis(x, verbose = FALSE, se = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

x

An object for which a method exists.

verbose

Logical. Whether or not to print messages to the console, Default: FALSE

se

Whether or not to return the standard errors, Default: FALSE

...

Additional arguments to pass to and from functions.

Value

A matrix of skew and kurtosis statistics for x.

Examples

skew_kurtosis(datasets::anscombe)
