wp.test: The Weibullness Test from the Weibull Plot

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

Performs the statistical test of Weibullness (Goodness-of-fit test for the Weibull distribution) using the sample correlation from the Weibull plot.

Usage

1
wp.test(x, a)

Arguments

x

a numeric vector of data values. Missing values are allowed, but the number of non-missing values must be between 3 and 1000.

a

the offset fraction to be used; typically in (0,1). See ppoints().

Details

The Weibullness test is constructed using the sample correlation which is calculated using the associated Weibull plot. The critical value is then looked up in Weibull.Plot.Quantiles. There is print method for class "htest".

Value

A list with class "htest" containing the following components:

statistic

the value of the test statistic (sample correlation from the Weibull plot)

p.value

the p-value for the test.

sample.size

sample size (missing observations are deleted).

method

a character string indicating the Weibullness test.

data.name

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