GUIskewness

GUIskewness shows the necessary calculations to obtain the variance in a GUI.

Syntax

Description

example

out =GUIskewness(x) Calculation of biased index of skewness.

example

out =GUIskewness(x, flag) Calculation of unbiased index of skewness.

example

out =GUIskewness(x, flag, w) Calculation of weighted unbiased index of skewness.

    Input Arguments

    expand all

    x — vector of numeric data. Vector.

    Vector containing strictly numerical data.

    Data Types: double

    Optional Arguments

    flag — flag for unbiasness. Scalar.

    If flag=0 the unbiased index is computed.

    If flag=1 (default) the biased index is computed, meaning that it tends to differ from the population skewness by a systematic amount based on the sample size.

    Example: 1

    Data Types: double

    w — weights. Vector.

    Vector of the same length of x containing the weights assigned to each observation.

    Example: 1:10

    Data Types: double

    Output Arguments

    expand all

    out —detailed output to compute the index. Table

    Table with n+1 rows (where n is the length of x) containing what is shown in the GUI. Last row contains the totals.
