icdf {convey} R Documentation

Linearization of the cumulative distribution function (cdf) of a variable

Description

Computes the linearized variable of the cdf function in a point.

Usage

icdf(formula, design, x, na.rm = FALSE, ...)


Arguments

 formula a formula specifying the income variable design a design object of class survey.design or class svyrep.design from the survey library. x the point where the cdf is calculated na.rm Should cases with missing values be dropped? ... future expansion

Value

Object of class "cvystat", which are vectors with a "var" attribute giving the variance and a "statistic" attribute giving the name of the statistic.
