MultivariateSkewness[matrix]

gives a multivariate coefficient of skewness for matrix.

Details and Options

  • To use MultivariateSkewness, you first need to load the Multivariate Statistics Package using Needs["MultivariateStatistics`"].
  • MultivariateSkewness is a univariate measure of skewness for multivariate data.
  • MultivariateSkewness[matrix] is equivalent to where matrix={x1,x2,,xn}, Mean[matrix], and is the estimated population covariance matrix.
  • A value of multivariate skewness close to zero indicates elliptical symmetry.
