an optional numeric vector giving the sample weights.

probs

numeric vector of probabilities with values in \([0,1]\).

na.rm

a logical indicating whether missing values in x should
be omitted.

names

logical; if true, the result has a names attribute. Set to FALSE for speedup with many probs.

type

an integer between 1 and 9 selecting one of the nine quantile algorithms detailed below to be used.

Value

A numeric vector containing the weighted quantiles of values in
x at probabilities probs is returned. Unlike
quantile, this returns an unnamed vector.

Details

The implementation strictly follows the Eurostat definition.
