zebu: Local Association Measures

Share:

Description

The zebu package implements the estimation of local (and global) association measures: Ducher's Z, pointwise mutual information and normalized pointwise mutual information. The significance of local (and global) association is accessed using p-values estimated by permutations. Finally, using local association subgroup analysis, it identifies if the association between variables is dependent on the value of another variable.
