Usage
percent(x,…)
  # S3 method for default
percent(x,weights=NULL,total=!(se || ci),
      se=FALSE,ci=FALSE,ci.level=.95,
      total.name="N",perc.label="Percentage",…)
  # S3 method for logical
percent(x,weights=NULL,total=!(se || ci),
      se=FALSE,ci=FALSE,ci.level=.95,
      total.name="N",perc.label="Percentage",…)
Arguments
x

a numeric vector or factor.

weights

a optional numeric vector of weights of the same length as x.

total

logical; should the total sum of counts from which the percentages are computed be included into the output?

se

logical; should standard errors of the percentages be included?

ci

logical; should confidence intervals of the percentages be included?

ci.level

numeric; nominal coverage of confidence intervals

total.name

character; name given for the total sum of counts

perc.label

character; label given for the percentages if the table has more than one dimensions, e.g. if se or ci is TRUE.

for percent.mresp: one or several 1-0 vectors or matrices otherwise, further arguments, currently ignored.

Value

A table of percentages.
