ds.corTestR Documentation

Tests for correlation between paired samples in the server-side

Description

This is similar to the R stats function cor.test.

Usage

ds.corTest(
  x = NULL,
  y = NULL,
  method = "pearson",
  exact = NULL,
  conf.level = 0.95,
  type = "split",
  datasources = NULL
)

Arguments

x

a character string providing the name of a numerical vector.

y

a character string providing the name of a numerical vector.

method

a character string indicating which correlation coefficient is to be used for the test. One of "pearson", "kendall", or "spearman", can be abbreviated. Default is set to "pearson".

exact

a logical indicating whether an exact p-value should be computed. Used for Kendall's tau and Spearman's rho. See ‘Details’ of R stats function cor.test for the meaning of NULL (the default).

conf.level

confidence level for the returned confidence interval. Currently only used for the Pearson product moment correlation coefficient if there are at least 4 complete pairs of observations. Default is set to 0.95.

type

a character string that represents the type of analysis to carry out. This must be set to 'split' or 'combine'. Default is set to 'split'. If type is set to "combine" then an approximated pooled correlation is estimated based on Fisher's z transformation.

datasources

a list of DSConnection-class objects obtained after login. If the datasources argument is not specified the default set of connections will be used: see datashield.connections_default.

Details

Runs a two-sided correlation test between paired samples, using one of Pearson's product moment correlation coefficient, Kendall's tau or Spearman's rho. Server function called: corTestDS

Value

ds.corTest returns to the client-side the results of the correlation test.
