Description

Calculates the Mann-Kendall statistic for monotonic trend. Unlike the function MannKendall, works for repeat values of time. Used in function mannkendall, which also calculates the p-value by simulation.

Usage

Arguments

time

Vector of values which define the direction of the trend.

Y

Vector of values for which you want to determine the trend.

Details

The statistic is calculated by considering each case j and considering the subset of observations that have time greater than time[j]. The Mann Kendall statistic is the number of observations in this subset for which Y > Y[j] minus the number for which Y < Y[j]. The statistic is summed over all j. The p-value is calculated by nreps random permutations of the Y values.
