skewness

Version:
    Last Modified: March 15, 2017

    Computes the skewness of the input vector or matrix.

    Syntax

    y = skewness(x)
    y = skewness(x, w)
    y = skewness(x, w, dim)

    Inputs

    x

    Real or complex array of any dimension.

    w

    Calculated skewness type. w is a scalar that accepts the following values.

    Name Description
    0

    Computes the population skewness value.

    1

    Computes the sample skewness value.

    Default: 1

    dim

    Dimension of x across which to compute the skewness if x is a matrix. dim is a scalar that accepts the following values.

    Name Description
    1

    Computes the column-wise skewness.

    2

    Computes the row-wise skewness.

    n

    Further dimensions.

    Default: 1

    Outputs

    y

    Skewness of x. If x is a vector, y returns the skewness value of all elements in x. If x is a matrix, y returns a vector of the skewness of each of the rows or columns in x, depending on the value of dim. If x is an array of any dimension, y returns a matrix of the skewness of each of the rows, columns, or pages in x, depending on the value of dim.

    X = [1.1 -2 10.5 -4 2.7 3.6];
    Y = skewness(X);
