This function takes a numeric count vector and returns estimated probabilities of the corresponding counts.

The following probability estimation methods are implemented in this function:

`method = "empirical"`

: generates the relative frequency of the data`x/sum(x)`

.

estimate.probability(x, method = "empirical")

x | a numeric vector storing count values. |
---|---|

method | a character string specifying the estimation method tht should be used to estimate probabilities from input counts. |

a numeric probability vector.

# generate a count vector x <- runif(100) # generate a probability vector from corresponding counts # method = "empirical" x.prob <- estimate.probability(x, method = "empirical")
