A value of 0 is an edge case where the GM will equal 0 regardless of all other values, but this is unlikely to be a desirable feature of it. <br />-To compute the GM, you can take the natural logs of the data, compute the arithmetic mean of those, and then exponentiate. No need for a custom function. Jay Verkuilenhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/07461798676830653869noreply@blogger.com
