Compute the kurtosis of a probability distribution.

ds_kurtosis(x, na.rm = FALSE)

## Arguments

x |
a numeric vector containing the values whose kurtosis is to be computed |

na.rm |
a logical value indicating whether NA values should be stripped before the computation proceeds. |

## Value

Kurtosis of `x`

## Details

Any NA values are stripped from `x`

before computation
takes place.

## Deprecated Function

`kurtosis()`

has been deprecated. Instead use `ds_kurtosis()`

.
