Hiridoglu-Berthelot function

Description

A function to measure ‘outlierness’ for skew distributed data with long right tails. The method works by measuring deviation from a reference value, by default the median. Deviation from above is measured as the ratio between observed and refence values. Deviation from below is measured as the inverse: the ratio between reference value and observed values.

Usage

hb(x, ref = stats::median, ...)

Arguments

x

[numeric]

ref

[function] or [numeric]

...

arguments passed to ref after x

Value

\max\{x/ref(x), ref(x)/x\}-1 if ref is a function, otherwise \max\{x/ref, ref/x\}-1
