density2 {activity}R Documentation

Modified kernel density function

Description

Modifies stats::density by: Adding SE and 95% confidence intervals for the density to the output; and Truncating calculation (not just reporting) of density values on from and/or to.

Usage

density2(x, reps = 999, ...)

Arguments

x

numeric data vector

reps

bootstrap iterations for SE/interval calculation; set to NULL to suppress

...

Additional arguments passed to stas::density

Details

Truncation copes with cases where no data are available outside truncation points. Truncation is achieved by fitting the density to the data augmented by reflecting it across each bound using the optimal bandwidth for the unaugmented data, and returning the resulting densities for the region between the bounds.

Value

A list with the same components as stats::density output plus: se: standard error of the density lcl, ucl: lower and upper 95% confidence intervals of the density

Examples

data(BCItime)
tm <- subset(BCItime, species=="ocelot")$time
dens <- density2(tm, from=0.25, to=0.75)
plot(dens$x, dens$y, type="l")
