coeffRV {FactoMineR} R Documentation

## Calculate the RV coefficient and test its significance

### Description

Calculate the RV coefficient and test its significance.

### Usage

coeffRV(X, Y)


### Arguments

 X a matrix with n rows (individuals) and p numerous columns (variables) Y a matrix with n rows (individuals) and p numerous columns (variables)

### Details

Calculates the RV coefficient between X and Y. It returns also the standardized RV, the expectation, the variance and the skewness under the permutation distribution. These moments are used to approximate the exact distribution of the RV statistic with the Pearson type III approximation and the p-value associated to this test is given.

### Value

A list containing the following components:

 RV the RV coefficient between the two matrices RVs the standardized RV coefficients mean the mean of the RV permutation distribution variance the variance of the RV permutation distribution skewness the skewness of the RV permutation distribution p.value the p-value associated to the test of the significativity of the RV coefficient (with the Pearson type III approximation
