MANHATTAN DISTANCEName:
The Manhattan distance is also referred to as the city block distance or the taxicab distance. It is equivalent to a Minkowsky distance with P = 1. The Manhattan distance is the distance measured along axes at right angles.
<SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification> where <y1> is the first response variable; <y2> is the second response variable; <par> is a parameter where the computed Manhattan distance is stored; and where the <SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification> is optional.
