This is a `playground`

to test code. It runs a full `Node.js`

environment and already has all of `npm`

’s 400,000 packages pre-installed, including `cumulative-distribution-function`

with all `npm`

packages installed. **Try it out**:

var cumulativeDistributionFunction = require("cumulative-distribution-function")

- all documents on RunKit are public
`require()`

any package directly from npm- use arrow functions, classes, template strings, and most of ES6
`await`

any promise instead of using callbacks (example)- create your own embedded
**node.js**snippets

Calculates statistical cumulative distribution function from data array of x values.

`npm i cumulative-distribution-function -S`

None. Suitable for usage on nodejs or on the browser, via browserify.

`const cdf = require('cumulative-distribution-function');`

Pass a numeric data array as input, `cdf(data)`

returns a **function**, the empirical cumulative distribution function,
a step function that counts the proportion of data less than or equal to the input x.

The function returned by cdf(data) takes a number x and returns the proportion of values less than or equal to x.

```
var mydata = [13,2,5,3,23,7,11,13,19,23];
var mycdf = cdf(mydata); // cdf(mydata) returns a **function**, so mycdf is a **function**
mycdf(-5) // 0.0 because all mydata are greater than -5
mycdf(2) // 0.1 because 1 of 10 mydata are less than or equal to 2
mycdf(3) // 0.2 because 2 of 10 mydata are less than or equal to 3
mycdf(13) // 0.7 because 7 of 10 mydata are less than or equal to 13
mycdf(19) // 0.8 because 8 of 10 mydata are less than or equal to 19
mycdf(20) // 0.8 because 8 of 10 mydata are less than or equal to 20
mycdf(25) // 1.0 because all mydata are less than or equal to 25
mycdf.xs() // returns [2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 19, 23] from sorted, unique mydata
mycdf.ps() // returns [0.1,0.2,0.3,0.4,0.5,0.7,0.8,1.0] from corresponding cumulative proportions
```

##Missing or Empty Data

Calling cdf with a missing or empty data array returns a function that returns undefined.

The `.xs()`

and `.ps()`

auxiliary functions will return empty arrays.

```
var mycdf = cdf([]); // empty or missing data
mycdf(5) // returns undefined
mycdf.xs() // returns empty array []
mycdf.ps() // returns empty array []
```

Use mocha framework.
