ConDisPairs {DescTools} | R Documentation |
This function counts concordant and discordant pairs for two variables x, y with at least ordinal scale, aggregated in a 2way table. This is the base for many association measures like Goodman Kruskal's gamma, but also all tau measures.
ConDisPairs(x)
x |
a 2-dimensional table. The column and the row order must be the logical one. |
The code is so far implemented in R (O(n^2)) and therefore slow for large sample sizes (>5000).
An O(n log(n)) implementation is available as (so far) undocumented function DescTools:::.DoCount(x, y, wts)
returning only concorant and discordant pairs (not including standard errors to be used for calculating confidence intervals).
