This function computes an estimator of Geary's measure of kurtosis.
geary(x, na.rm = FALSE)
- a numeric vector, matrix or data frame.
- logical. Should missing values be removed?
The Geary's kurtosis is computed by dividing average difference between observation and the mean by standard deviation of the sample.
