Function Posted October 19, 2018 Share Posted October 19, 2018 Hello y'all In my thesis, I have this variable, which is expressed in a percentage (%). It's not an option to, e.g., display 20 % as 0.20, since that is absolutely not common for that variable. Now, this variable does not satisfy the conditions for parametric testing. However, its square-root variant does. But if I report both this variable, in %, then do I have to change the "unit" (which in itself is demensionless) to something else than %? Now I would report: Mean Var ± SD - % Mean VarROOT ± SD - % But I'm not sure if this is quite right. After all: e.g., in the case of 20 %, I took the root of 20, and not of 0.20. So ... sqrt(20 %) = sqrt(20) * sqrt(0.01) = 4.47 * 0.1 = 0.447 ~ 44.7 % And sqrt(0.20) = 0.447 ~ 44.7 % But erm ... Is there a symbol for 1/10? Because now I see that I would incorrectly report 4.47 % (since I only rooted 20 without the %) instead of 44.7 %. Thanks F Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
