Purpose

Calculates the arithmetic, harmonic, and geometric mean of a vector.

Synopsis

vals = means(x)

Inputs

  • x = matrix (column vector) in which the sample data is stored.

Outputs

The return value is a structure with fields:

  • amean = arithmetic mean.
  • na = number of obs used in amean calculation.
  • hmean = harmonic mean.
  • nh = number of obs used in hmean calculation.
  • gmean = geometric mean.
  • ng = number of obs used in gmean calculation.

Examples

mns = means(x);
