 Trim
 trim data set
 Winsorize
 winsorize data set Calling Sequence Trim(X, l, u) Winsorize(X, l, u) Parameters

 X - l - numeric; lower percentile u - numeric; upper percentile Description

 • The Trim and Winsorize commands can be used to eliminate extreme points in a data set.
 • The Trim command return all points from X between lth and uth percentiles.
 • The Winsorize command is similar to Trim except that the extreme points in X are replaced with the values of the lth or the uth percentile (whichever is closer).
 • The first parameter X is the data set, given as e.g. a Vector.
 • The second parameter l is the lower percentile, the third parameter u is the upper percentile. Both l and u must be numeric constants between 0 and 100. A common choice for l and u is 5 and 95 respectively. Examples
