Sib-pair Command: normality


ClassAnalysis and data manipulation command
Namenormality
Arguments <trait1> [...<traitN>]

Calculate Filliben correlation (correlation between value and expected quantile under assumption of normality) for each quantitative trait. The test statistic for each trait is written to the locstat variable, accessible using the summary and drop commands.

Example:

>> read bin melaexpression.bin.gz

Read in  22 pedigrees, 22 individuals
         1454712 variables (0.80 s)
Dataset occupies 35.442 Mb.

>> nor

Calculated Filliben correlations for 22277 traits.
