classBreaks

0th

Percentile

Class breaks

Finds class breaks in a distribution

Usage
classBreaks(x, n, type = c("equal", "quantile", "std", "geometric"))
Arguments
x

A vector to find breaks for

n

Number of breaks

type

Statistic used to find breaks c("equal", "quantile", "std", "geometric")

Value

A vector containing class break values the length is n+1 to allow for specification of ranges

Note

The robust std method uses sqrt(sum(x^2)/(n-1)) to center the data before deriving "pretty" breaks.
