Logit Transformation

Description

Compute the logit transformation of proportions or percentages.

Usage

logit(p, percents, adjust)

Arguments

p

numeric vector or array of proportions or percentages.

percents

TRUE for percentages, FALSE for proportions. If the argument is missing and the largest value of p > 1, percents is set to TRUE, otherwise to FALSE.

adjust

adjustment factor to avoid proportions of 0 or 1; defaults to 0 if there are no such proportions in the data, and to .025 if there are.

Details

Computes the logit transformation logit =\log [p/(1-p)] for the proportion p.

If p=0 or 1, then the logit is undefined. logit can remap the proportions to the interval (adjust, 1 - adjust) prior to the transformation. If it adjusts the data automatically, logit will print a warning message.

Value

a numeric vector or array of the same shape and size as p.
