Quantile Regression Ranks

Function to compute ranks from the dual (regression rankscore) process.

Keywords
regression
Usage
ranks(v, score="wilcoxon", tau=0.5, trim = NULL)
Arguments
v

object of class "rq.process" generated by rq()

score

The score function desired. Currently implemented score functions are "wilcoxon", "normal", and "sign" which are asymptotically optimal for the logistic, Gaussian and Laplace location shift models respectively. The "normal" score function is also sometimes called van der Waerden scores. Also implemented are the "tau" which generalizes sign scores to an arbitrary quantile, "interquartile" which is appropriate for tests of scale shift, normalscale for Gaussian scale shift, halfnormalscale for Gaussian scale shift only to the right of the median, and lehmann for Lehmann local alternatives. See Koenker (2010) for further details on the last three of these scores.

tau

the optional value of tau if the "tau" score function is used.

trim

optional trimming proportion parameter(s) -- only applicable for the Wilcoxon score function -- when one value is provided there is symmetric trimming of the score integral to the interval (trim, 1-trim), when there are two values provided, then the trimming restricts the integration to (trim[1], trim[2]).

Details

See GJKP(1993) for further details.

Value

The function returns two components. One is the ranks, the other is a scale factor which is the \(L_2\) norm of the score function. All score functions should be normalized to have mean zero.
