bin.var(x, bins = 4, method = c("intervals", "proportions", "natural"),
labels = FALSE)
```

##### Arguments

- x
- numeric variable to be binned.
- bins
- number of bins.
- method
- one of
`"intervals"`

for equal-width bins;`"proportions"`

for equal-count bins;`"natural"`

for cut points between bins to be determined by a k-means clustering. - labels
- if
`FALSE`

, numeric labels will be used for the factor levels; if`NULL`

, the cut points are used to define labels; otherwise a character vector of level names.
