Find the numerical variable that skewed variable that inherits the data.frame or data.frame.

find_skewness(.data, index = TRUE, value = FALSE, thres = NULL)



a data.frame or a tbl_df.


logical. When representing the information of a skewed variable, specify whether or not the variable is represented by an index. Returns an index if TRUE or a variable names if FALSE.


logical. If TRUE, returns the skewness value in the individual variable.


Returns a skewness threshold value that has an absolute skewness greater than thres. The default is NULL to ignore the threshold. but, If value = TRUE, default to 0.5.
