NAME

gbstat - Basic descriptive statistics of data

SYNOPSIS

gbstat [options]

DESCRIPTION

Sample statistics. Compute mean, standard deviation, skewness, kurtosis, average deviation, minimum, maximum, median (if option -m is specified) and number of valid observations. Option -O allows one to select specific statistics. With option -t statistics are printed for each column of data separately. A header line is added with the meaning of the different columns. The mode is computed using the Half-Sample method.

-t

-s
short: mean std skew kurt adev min max (median) num
-O
select output: mean,std,skew,kurt,adev,min,max,median,num,mode
