This will generate a standard normal deviate centered on 0 with a range of -6 to 6.

The following code would return a normal deviate to cell A1:

The primary reason for generating the standard deviate using a macro is that you can write it, test it carefully, and then use the CALL function any time you need a standard normal deviate.

We calculated the GG by converting fructosamine into a standardized

normal deviate by subtracting the mean fructosamine from each value and dividing the result by the SD of fructosamine (4).

Then, we can use the

normal deviate Z calculated as the difference of z and to, the transform of the hypothesized coefficient, divided by the standard error of z to test the null hypothesis.

1) were transformed to the reduced form, error terms for sample sizes of fifteen, twenty-five and forty were produced by a random normal deviate generator and values for the endogenous variables were calculated.

Since random deviates will loose the quality of randomness if they are forced to be orthogonal, the objective of this paper is focused on investigating the sensitivity of estimators of a two-equation model in the presence of three levels of unintended correlation between pairs of normal deviates used in the Monte Carlo experiment.

These three scenarios of correlation are then used to generate pairs of normal deviates of sizes N = 15, 25 and 40 with 100 replications.

1 - [Alpha]/2] = Normal Deviate for Significance Level ([Alpha] = 0.

1 - [Beta]] = Normal Deviate for Statistical Power.

The standard deviation for each

normal deviate, Z, is based on

The between-gender statistical difference was further evaluated by a standard

normal deviate test (z-test): the critical z value ([z.
