ZTest_sterr - script and chart function

ZTest_sterr() returns the aggregated z-test standard error of the mean difference for a series of values.

If the function is used in the data load script, the values are iterated over a number of records as defined by a group by clause.

If the function is used in a chart expression, the values are iterated over the chart dimensions.

Syntax:  

ZTest_sterr(value[, sigma])

Return data type: numeric

Arguments:  

Arguments
ArgumentDescription
valueThe sample values to be evaluated. A population mean of 0 is assumed. If you want the test to be performed around another mean, subtract that mean from the sample values.
sigmaIf known, the standard deviation can be stated in sigma. If sigma is omitted the actual sample standard deviation will be used.

Limitations:  

Text values, NULL values and missing values in the expression value will result in the function returning NULL.

Example:  

ZTest_sterr(Value-TestValue)
