1  shorth(x, Alpha=0.5)

x 
data vector, no NAs 
Alpha 
minimum fraction of data to be covered by scale estimator.
if Alpha == 0.5, the 
a list, say L, with components
shorth 
a 2vector with endpoints of the shortest Alphasample 
length.shorth 
see previous return component

midpt.shorth 
mean(L[["shorth"]]) 
meanshorth 
mean of values in the shorth, studied by Andrews et al (1972) as a location estimator 
correction.parity.dep 
correction factor to be applied to achieve
approximate unbiasedness and diminish smallsample
parity dependence; 
bias.correction.gau.5 
correction factor to be applied along with
correction.parity.dep when Alpha = .5; empirically
derived bias correction useful for 10 < N < 2000 and
possibly beyond. To use, divide:
