R-package: Wilcox’ Robust Statistics updated (WRS v0.20)

January 8, 2013

Rand Wilcox constantly updates the functions accompanying his books on robust statistics. Recently, they have been updated to version 20. The functions are available in the WRS package for R – for installation simply type
install.packages("WRS", repos="http://R-Forge.R-project.org")

In version 0.20, a number of functions dealing with ANCOVA have been added and some others improved. Unfortunately, only very few help files exist for the functions. I would recommend to check out the source code, as most functions have a comment section roughly explaining the parameters. Alternatively, consult Wilcox’ books for descriptions of the functions.
