# H CONSISTENCY STATISTIC

Name:
H CONSISTENCY STATISTIC (LET)
Type:
Let Subcommand
Purpose:
Compute the h-consistency statistic of a variable as defined by the ASTM E691 standard.
Description:
The h-consistency statistic is defined in the ASTM E691 standard as

$$h = d/s_{\tilde{x}}$$ (between laboratory consistency statistic)

with

d = cell deviation (cell average - average of cell averages)
$$s_{\tilde{x}}$$ = standard deviations of cell averages

Essentially, h is a standardized deviation from the grand averages.

Syntax 1:
LET <h> = H CONSISTENCY STATISTIC <y> <labid>
<SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification>
where <y> is a response variable;
<labid> is a lab-id variable;
<h> is a variable where the h-consistency statistic values are saved;
and where the <SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification> is optional.

This syntax is used to compute the h-consistency statistic for a single material. The number of h-values is equal to the number of laboratories.

Syntax 2:
LET <h> <labtag> <mattag>= H CONSISTENCY STATISTIC <y> <labid> <matid>
<SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification>
where <y> is a response variable;
<labid> is a lab-id variable;
<matid> is a material-id variable;
<h> is a variable where the h-consistency statistic values are saved;
<labtag> is a variable where the corresponding lab-id values are saved;
<mattag> is a variable where the corresponding material-id values are saved;
and where the <SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification> is optional.

This syntax is used to compute the h-consistency statistic for multiple materials. The number of h-values is equal to the number of materials times the number of laboratories.

Examples:
LET A = H CONSISTENCY STATISTIC Y LAB
LET HVAL = H CONSISTENCY STATISTIC Y LAB MAT
LET HVAL = H CONSISTENCY STATISTIC Y LAB MAT SUBSET MAT > 2
