`Descriptives.Rd`

`Descriptives(x)`

gives a vector of sample statistics
for use in `codebook`

.

## Usage

```
Descriptives(x,...)
# S4 method for atomic
Descriptives(x, weights = NULL, ...)
# S4 method for item.vector
Descriptives(x, weights = NULL, ...)
```

## Arguments

an atomic vector or

`"item.vector"`

object.- weights
an optional vector of weights.

- ...
further arguments, to be passed to future methods.

## Value

A numeric vector of sample statistics, containing the range, the mean, the standard deviation, the skewness and the (excess) kurtosis.

## Examples

```
x <- rnorm(100)
Descriptives(x)
#> Min Max Mean Std.Dev. Skewness Kurtosis
#> -2.44293831 2.38247806 -0.06695013 1.11728082 -0.09796618 -0.79946174
