Hello, I am brand new here. I am trying to fit a probability distribution to three different variables whose data is stored in three columns in a single .csv file.
1) I found the fitdist( ) function from the fitdistplus package. However, it requires specifying a particular probability distribution (normal, Weibull, etc.) in advance. Do any R functions exist which perform goodness of fit tests for a large group of distributions and report the best fittting function, so I don't need to tell it in advance which distribution to fit?
2) What is the proper syntax for the fitdist( ) function to call just the cells needed for that particular variable (that particular column of data) in the .csv file (such as cell range A2:A51)?
Thank you very much in advance,
Sincerely,
Gary
