# MATRIX COLUMN STATISTIC

Name:
MATRIX COLUMN STATSITIC (LET)
Type:
Let Subcommand
Purpose:
Compute a user specified statistic for the columns of a matrix.
Description:
The resulting computed statistics are saved in array. The first row of the array is the statistic for column 1, the second row of the array is the statistic for column 2, and so on.
Syntax:
LET <y> = MATRIX COLUMN <stat> <mat>             <SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification>
where <mat> is a matrix for which the column statistic is to be computed;
<stat> is the desired statistic to compute;
<y> is a variable where the resulting column statistic is saved;
and where the <SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification> is optional.

The specified statistic can be any of the following:

MEAN, MIDMEAN, TRIMMED MEAN, WINSORIZED MEAN, MEDIAN,
GEOMETRIC MEAN, HARMONIC MEAN, HODGES LEHMAN,
BIWEIGHT LOCATION, MIDRANGE,
SD (or STANDARD DEVIATION), SD OF MEAN, VARIANCE,
VARIANCE OF MEAN, RELATIVE VARIANCE,
RELATIVE STANDARD DEVIATION, COEFFICIENT OF VARIATION,
IQ RANGE, BIWEIGHT MIDVARIANCE, BIWEIGHT SCALE,
PERCENTAGE BEND MIDVARIANCE,
WINSORIZED VARIANCE, WINSORIZED STANDARD DEVIATION,
TRIMMED MEAN STANDARD ERROR,
RANGE, MAXIMUM, MINIMUM, EXTREME,
LOWER HINGE, UPPER HINGE,
LOWER QUARTILE, UPPER QUARTILE,
NINTH> DECILE
PERCENTILE, QUANTILE, QUANTILE STANDARD ERROR,
SKEWNESS, KURTOSIS, SUM, PRODUCT, SIZE (or NUMBER or COUNT),
AUTOCOVARIANCE, AUTOCORRELATION,
SIN FREQUENCY, SIN AMPLITUDE,
CP, CPK, CNPK, CPM, CC,
EXPECTED LOSS, PERCENT DEFECTIVE,
TAGUCHI SN0 (or SN), TAGUCHI SN+ (or SNL),
TAGUCHI SN- (or SNS), TAGUCHI SN00 (or SN2).
Examples:
LET MMEAN = MATRIX COLUMN MEAN M
LET MMEAN = MATRIX COLUMN MEDIAN M
LET MMEAN = MATRIX COLUMN MEDIAN M SUBSET TAG = 1 TO 2
Note:
Matrices are created with either the READ MATRIX command or the MATRIX DEFINITION command. Enter HELP MATRIX DEFINITION and HELP READ MATRIX for details.
Note:
Statistics for the rows of a matrix can be computed using the MATRIX ROW STATISTIC command. Enter HELP MATRIX ROW STATISTIC for details.
Default:
None
Synonyms:
None
Related Commands:
 MATRIX ROW STATISTIC = Compute row statistics for a matrix. MATRIX COLUMN DIMENSION = Dimension maximum number of columns for Dataplot matrices.
