ci_kurtosis {confintr} | R Documentation |
This function calculates bootstrap confidence intervals for the population kurtosis, see Details. Note that we use the version of the kurtosis that equals 3 for a theoretical normal distribution.

probs = c(0.025, 0.975),
type = "bootstrap",
boot_type = c("bca", "perc", "norm", "basic"),

seed = NULL,

)
x |
A numeric vector. |
probs |
Error probabilites. The default c(0.025, 0.975) gives a symmetric 95% confidence interval. |
type |
Type of confidence interval. Currently not used as the only type is "bootstrap". |
boot_type |
Type of bootstrap confidence interval c("bca", "perc", "norm", "basic"). |
R |
The number of bootstrap resamples. |
seed |
An integer random seed. |
... |
Further arguments passed to |
Bootstrap confidence intervals are calculated by the package "boot", see references. The default bootstrap type is "bca" (bias-corrected accelerated) as it enjoys the property of being second order accurate as well as transformation respecting (see Efron, p. 188).
