scripts default iconskewreduction.m- skewness reduction (transformation method) (Scripts) Publisher's description

This function tranform x (a skewed data) to xt in which xt has skewness close to zero

Skewness Reduction

USAGE: [xt r sk]=skewreduction(x)

x: original data (skewed data) - x should be positive. If some of the observations are negative the following transformation can be used before skewness reduction x=x-min(x)

xt: transformed data (data with skewness close to 0)
r: a root in which xt=x.^r
sk: skewness of transfomed data

This function tranform x (a skewed data) to xt in which xt has skewness close to zero. This is useful to trasform skewed (non-normal) data to normal (or close to normal)data.

Example 1 (x has positive skewness):
[xt r sk]=skewreduction(x)

Example 2 (x has negative skewness):
[xt r sk]=skewreduction(x)
