Re: Calculating a P for trend

Bert Gunter-2
I would suggest that if at all possible, you find a local statistician
(your instructor??) with whom to consult. Much of what you are doing
appears likely to result in irreproducible nonsense.

This list is concerned with R programming, not statistics, although they
sometimes do intersect. So I think your post is off topic here (but others
may disagree).

Cheers,
Bert
