choplumpGeneral {choplump}R Documentation

General choplump test

Description

This function does a general choplump test. For simple difference in standardized means (on the responses or on the ranks), use the much faster choplump function.

Usage

choplumpGeneral(W, Z, testfunc=testfunc.wilcox.ties.general)

Arguments

W

numeric vector of responses, some should be zero

Z

numeric vector of group membership, values either 0 or 1

testfunc

test function, inputs a data frame with two columns labeled W and Z, outputs test statistic

Value

Returns a p-value vector of length 3, with 3 named values: p.lower, p.upper, p.2sided.

Examples
