MATHEMATICA COMPATIBILITY INFORMATION

Upgrading from:

Statistics`DescriptiveStatistics`

Functionality in this package has been added to the built-in Mathematica kernel.
is replaced by the kernel function Commonest.

CentralMoment, GeometricMean, HarmonicMean, InterquartileRange, Kurtosis, MeanDeviation, MedianDeviation, QuartileDeviation, Quartiles, QuartileSkewness, RootMeanSquare, Skewness, and TrimmedMean are now part of the built-in Mathematica kernel:

Version 5.2 << Statistics`DescriptiveStatistics`;
GeometricMean[{10, 50, 10, 15, 20}]
In[61]:=

can be computed using Min and Max:

can be computed from Kurtosis:

Version 5.2 << Statistics`DescriptiveStatistics`;
KurtosisExcess[{10, 50, 10, 15, 20}]
In[2]:=

Out[2]=

can be computed by subtracting the mean from the data:

can be computed from Mean and StandardDeviation:

Version 5.2 << Statistics`DescriptiveStatistics`;
Standardize[Range[1., 10.], MLE -> True]
In[2]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[2]=

can be computed as a parameterized Quantile:

Version 5.2 << Statistics`DescriptiveStatistics`;
InterpolatedQuantile[{10, 50, 10, 15, 20}, 3/4]
In[2]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[2]=

, , and can be constructed directly from the report elements:
