Up: Component summary Component


Computes ranks of values in a matrix. Ranks are computed independently for each column. The rank is a value between 0 and 1. The lowest value in a given column group gets rank 0/(n-1)=0, the next gets 1/(n-1) and the highest value gets rank (n-1)/(n-1) = 1. Here, n is the number of cells in the current column having a non-missing value. Missing values (NA) are excluded from rank computation.
