2
arpt(inc, weights = NULL, sort = NULL, years = NULL, data = NULL,
  p = 0.6, na.rm = FALSE)

Arguments

inc

either a numeric vector giving the equivalized disposable income, or (if data is not NULL) a character string, an integer or a logical vector specifying the corresponding column of data.

weights

optional; either a numeric vector giving the personal sample weights, or (if data is not NULL) a character string, an integer or a logical vector specifying the corresponding column of data.

sort

optional; either a numeric vector giving the personal IDs to be used as tie-breakers for sorting, or (if data is not NULL) a character string, an integer or a logical vector specifying the corresponding column of data.

years

optional; either a numeric vector giving the different years of the survey, or (if data is not NULL) a character string, an integer or a logical vector specifying the corresponding column of data. If supplied, values are computed for each year.

data

an optional data.frame.

p

a numeric vector of values in [0,1] giving the percentages of the weighted median to be used for the at-risk-of-poverty threshold.

na.rm

a logical indicating whether missing values should be removed.
