Skew and kurtosis

skewKurt(x)

Arguments

x

Numeric vector

Value

A list of class "skewKurt" with:

VariableDescription
sSkewness with direction
s.seStandard error of skewness
s.zTest statistic (s.z = s / s.se)
s.pp-value (s != 0)
kExcess kurtosis with direction
k.seStandard error of excess kurtosis
k.zTest statistic (k.z = k / k.se)
k.pp-value (k != 0)

Examples

# Use skewKurt() on an anthropometric data from a SMART survey in # Kabul, Afghanistan (dist.ex01) svy <- dist.ex01 skewKurt(svy$muac)
