Skewness

Computes the skewness of the values of x.

If $N = length(x)$, then the skewness of $x$ is defined as

$$N^(-1) sd(x)^(-3) sum_i (x_i - mean(x))^3$$

Usage
skewness(x, na.rm=FALSE)
Arguments
x
a numeric vector containing the values whose skewness is to be computed.
na.rm
a logical value indicating whether NA values should be stripped before the computation proceeds.
Value

  • Returns the skewness of x.
