ShapiroFranciaTest {DescTools} | R Documentation |
Performs the Shapiro-Francia test for the composite hypothesis of normality.
ShapiroFranciaTest(x)
x |
a numeric vector of data values, the number of which must be between 5 and 5000. Missing values are allowed. |
The test statistic of the Shapiro-Francia test is simply the squared correlation between the ordered sample values and the (approximated) expected ordered quantiles from the standard normal distribution. The p-value is computed from the formula given by Royston (1993).
A list of class htest
, containing the following components:
statistic |
the value of the Shapiro-Francia statistic. |
p.value |
the p-value for the test. |
method |
the character string “Shapiro-Francia normality test”. |
data.name |
a character string giving the name(s) of the data. |
The Shapiro-Francia test is known to perform well,
see also the comments by Royston (1993). The expected ordered quantiles
from the standard normal distribution are approximated by
qnorm(ppoints(x, a = 3/8))
, being slightly different from the approximation
qnorm(ppoints(x, a = 1/2))
used for the normal quantile-quantile plot by
qqnorm
for sample sizes greater than 10.
