quantile.ZIPoisson {distributions3} R Documentation

Determine quantiles of a zero-inflated Poisson distribution

Description

quantile() is the inverse of cdf().

Usage

## S3 method for class 'ZIPoisson'
quantile(x, probs, drop = TRUE, elementwise = NULL, ...)


Arguments

 x A ZIPoisson object created by a call to ZIPoisson(). probs A vector of probabilities. drop logical. Should the result be simplified to a vector if possible? elementwise logical. Should each distribution in x be evaluated at all elements of probs (elementwise = FALSE, yielding a matrix)? Or, if x and probs have the same length, should the evaluation be done element by element (elementwise = TRUE, yielding a vector)? The default of NULL means that elementwise = TRUE is used if the lengths match and otherwise elementwise = FALSE is used. ... Arguments to be passed to qzipois. Unevaluated arguments will generate a warning to catch mispellings or other possible errors.

Value

In case of a single distribution object, either a numeric vector of length probs (if drop = TRUE, default) or a matrix with length(probs) columns (if drop = FALSE). In case of a vectorized distribution object, a matrix with length(probs) columns containing all possible combinations.

Examples

## set up a zero-inflated Poisson distribution
X <- ZIPoisson(lambda = 2.5, pi = 0.25)
X

## standard functions
pdf(X, 0:8)
cdf(X, 0:8)
quantile(X, seq(0, 1, by = 0.25))

## cdf() and quantile() are inverses for each other
quantile(X, cdf(X, 3))

## density visualization
plot(0:8, pdf(X, 0:8), type = "h", lwd = 2)

## corresponding sample with histogram of empirical frequencies
set.seed(0)
x <- random(X, 500)
hist(x, breaks = -1:max(x) + 0.5)
