Acknowledgement

The authors would like to express their endless gratitude to Prof. Konigsberg for his contribution to this package with authentic code used in the multivariate, extract_sum functions, data sets used in the examples and for his overall valuable work in the field of physical anthropology without which this package wouldn’t have been possible.

Data entry

The input can be in the form of wide format raw data or summary statistics where each row represents measurements of a single individual or population. In order to be recognized by the functions, columns need to have a specific name (case sensitive):

  1. Sex : The gender; either M for male or F for female (Summary/Raw data)
  2. Pop : Populations of the measured individuals (Summary/Raw data)
  3. Parms : Measured numerical parameters for multivariate analysis (Summary)
  4. m : Male sample size (Summary)
  5. f :Female sample size (Summary)
  6. M.mu: Male mean (Summary)
  7. F.mu :Female mean (Summary)
  8. M.sdev : Male standard deviation (Summary)
  9. F.sdev :Female standard deviation (Summary)
