If you have a running stream of data, it’s easy to maintain its average incrementally, meaning you don’t have to store the entire vector to compute the mean-so-far.
As $N$ increases to $N 1$, note that for instance, letting $x_6=66$ be a new datum arriving on the scene: We see two algorithm choices for incrementally updating the average; informally: The first alternative may be cheaper since you don’t divide until you need the average.
The statistics package provides frameworks and implementations for basic Descriptive statistics, frequency distributions, bivariate regression, and t-, chi-square and ANOVA test statistics.
Descriptive statistics Frequency distributions Simple Regression Multiple Regression Rank transformations Covariance and correlation Statistical Tests With the exception of percentiles and the median, all of these statistics can be computed without maintaining the full list of input data values in memory.
This motivates the use of the symbol , which then provides a consistent way of denoting the variance as , where is the standard deviation.

So, I wrote an add-in that used the matrix algebra functions to create a covariance matrix that would change if you changed the data.
The stat package provides interfaces and implementations that do not require value storage as well as implementations that operate on arrays of stored values. This interface, implemented by all statistics, consists of method.
Abstract implementations of the top level interfaces are provided in Abstract Univariate Statistic and Abstract Storeless Univariate Statistic respectively.
Each statistic is implemented as a separate class, in one of the subpackages (moment, rank, summary) and each extends one of the abstract classes above (depending on whether or not value storage is required to compute the statistic).
There are several ways to instantiate and use statistics.
