Yule: Yule coefficient of correlation

Description

The Yule coefficientis a correlation coefficient applied to dichotomous data. Given a two x two table of counts | a | b | R1 | | c | d | R1 | |---|---|----| |C1 | C2| n | or a vector c(a,b,c,d) of frequencies. Taken from psych::Yule.

Usage

Yule(x, Y = FALSE)

Arguments

x
a 1 x 4 vector or a matrix 2 x 2 of frequencies.
Y
if Y is true return Yule's Y coefficient of colligation.

Value

the value of the Yule Q coefficient.

Details

The coefficient of Yule is calculated from (ad - bc)/(ad + bc). This is the number of pairs in agreement (ad) - the number in disagreement (bc) over the total number of paired observations.
