`kruskal_effsize.Rd`

Compute the effect size for Kruskal-Wallis test as the eta
squared based on the H-statistic: `eta2[H] = (H - k + 1)/(n - k)`

;
where `H`

is the value obtained in the Kruskal-Wallis test; `k`

is
the number of groups; `n`

is the total number of observations.

The eta-squared estimate assumes values from 0 to 1 and multiplied by 100
indicates the percentage of variance in the dependent variable explained by
the independent variable. The interpretation values commonly in published
litterature are: `0.01- < 0.06`

(small effect), `0.06 - < 0.14`

(moderate effect) and `>= 0.14`

(large effect).

Confidence intervals are calculated by bootstap.

kruskal_effsize(data, formula, ci = FALSE, conf.level = 0.95, ci.type = "perc", nboot = 1000)

data | a data.frame containing the variables in the formula. |
---|---|

formula | a formula of the form |

ci | If TRUE, returns confidence intervals by bootstrap. May be slow. |

conf.level | The level for the confidence interval. |

ci.type | The type of confidence interval to use. Can be any of "norm",
"basic", "perc", or "bca". Passed to |

nboot | The number of replications to use for bootstrap. |

return a data frame with some of the following columns:

`.y.`

: the y variable used in the test.`n`

: Sample counts.`effsize`

: estimate of the effect size.`magnitude`

: magnitude of effect size.`conf.low,conf.high`

: lower and upper bound of the effect size confidence interval.
