bf.test: Brown-Forsythe Test

Description

bf.test performs Brown-Forsythe test.

Usage

bf.test(formula, data, alpha = 0.05, na.rm = TRUE, verbose = TRUE)

Arguments

formula

a formula of the form lhs ~ rhs where lhs gives the sample values and rhs the corresponding groups.

data

a tibble or data frame containing the variables in the formula formula

alpha

the level of significance to assess the statistical difference. Default is set to alpha = 0.05.

na.rm

a logical value indicating whether NA values should be stripped before the computation proceeds.

verbose

a logical for printing output to R console.

Value

A list with class "owt" containing the following components:

statistic

the Brown-Forsythe test statistic.

parameter

the parameter(s) of the approximate F distribution of the test statistic.

p.value

the p-value of the test.

alpha

the level of significance to assess the statistical difference.

method

formula

a formula of the form lhs ~ rhs where lhs gives the sample values and rhs the corresponding groups.
