stats.bin {fields} | R Documentation |
Cuts up a numeric vector based on binning by a covariate and applies the fields stats function to each group
stats.bin(x, y, N = 10, breaks = NULL)
x |
Values to use to decide bin membership |
y |
A vector of data |
N |
Number of bins. If the breaks is missing there are N bins equally spaced on the range of x. |
breaks |
The bin boundaries. If there are N+1 of these there will be N bins. The bin widths can be unequal. |
A list with several components. stats is a matrix with columns indexing the bins and rows being summary statistics found by the stats function. These are: number of obs, mean, sd, min, quartiles, max and number of NA's. (If there is no data for a given bin, NA's are filled in. ) breaks are the breaks passed to the function and centers are the bin centers.
