## How does R calculate quantiles by group?

To group data, we use dplyr module. This module contains a function called group_by() in which the column to be grouped by has to be passed. To find quantiles of the grouped data we will call summarize method with quantiles() function.

## How does R calculate quantile?

quantile() function in R Language is used to create sample quantiles within a data set with probability[0, 1]. Such as first quantile is at 0.25[25%], second is at 0.50[50%], and third is at 0.75[75%].

**What are quantiles in R?**

In statistics, quantiles are values that divide a ranked dataset into equal groups. The quantile() function in R can be used to calculate sample quantiles of a dataset. This function uses the following basic syntax: quantile(x, probs = seq(0, 1, 0.25), na.rm = FALSE)

### How do you calculate quantiles?

Quantiles of a population. Pr[X ≤ x] ≥ k/q. That is equivalent to saying that x is the smallest value such that Pr[X ≤ x] ≥ k/q. For a finite population of N equally probable values indexed 1, …, N from lowest to highest, the k-th q-quantile of this population can equivalently be computed via the value of Ip = N k/q.

### What does quantile regression do?

Quantile regression models the relationship between a set of predictor (independent) variables and specific percentiles (or “quantiles”) of a target (dependent) variable, most often the median.

**How are quantiles calculated?**

We often divide the distribution at 99 centiles or percentiles . The median is thus the 50th centile. For the 20th centile of FEV1, i =0.2 times 58 = 11.6, so the quantile is between the 11th and 12th observation, 3.42 and 3.48, and can be estimated by 3.42 + (3.48 – 3.42) times (11.6 – 11) = 3.46.

**What do quantiles mean?**

A quantile defines a particular part of a data set, i.e. a quantile determines how many values in a distribution are above or below a certain limit. Special quantiles are the quartile (quarter), the quintile (fifth) and percentiles (hundredth).

## What does str () mean in R?

str() function in R Language is used for compactly displaying the internal structure of a R object. It can display even the internal structure of large lists which are nested. It provides one liner output for the basic R objects letting the user know about the object and its constituents.
