stats[describe]

 decile
 Deciles of a statistical list

 Calling Sequence stats[describe, decile[which]](data, gap) describe[decile[which]](data, gap)

Parameters

 data - statistical list which - decile required gap - (optional, default=false) The common size of gaps between classes.

Description

 • Important: The stats package has been deprecated. Use the superseding package Statistics instead.
 • The function decile of the subpackage stats[describe, ...] finds the item in data that correspond to the decile specified by which. If the requested decile falls between entries, it is interpolated.
 • The deciles are values that divide a data set, once sorted, into 10 equal parts.
 • Missing data are ignored.
 • For information about the parameter gap, see describe[gaps].
 • The data must be numeric.
 • The command with(stats[describe],decile) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.
