Estimate the relative median at-risk-of-poverty gap, which is defined as the relative difference between the median equalized disposable income of persons below the At Risk of Poverty Threshold and the At Risk of Poverty Threshold itself (expressed as a percentage of the at-risk-of-poverty threshold) and its linearization.

`Y` |
Study variable (for example equalized disposable income). One dimensional object convertible to one-column |

`id` |
Optional variable for unit ID codes. One dimensional object convertible to one-column |

`weight` |
Optional weight variable. One dimensional object convertible to one-column |

`sort` |
Optional variable to be used as tie-breaker for sorting. One dimensional object convertible to one-column |

`Dom` |
Optional variables used to define population domains. If supplied, linearization of the relative median at-risk-of-poverty gap is done for each domain. An object convertible to |

`period` |
Optional variable for survey period. If supplied, linearization of the relative median at-risk-of-poverty gap is done for each time period. Object convertible to |

`dataset` |
Optional survey data object convertible to |

`percentage` |
A numeric value in range
For example, to compute poverty threshold equal to 60% of some income quantile, |

`order_quant` |
A numeric value in range
For example, to compute poverty threshold equal to some percentage of median income, |

`var_name` |
A character specifying the name of the linearized variable. |

`checking` |
Optional variable if this variable is TRUE, then function checks data preparation errors, otherwise not checked. This variable by default is TRUE. |

A list with two objects are returned by the function:

`value` |
A |

`lin` |
A |
