And, the much larger standard deviation will severely reduce statistical power! If not I would use both results, unless you can find some way to remove the causes of the outliers. Hello Max, =WINSORIZE(\$BS\$2:\$BS\$6149;0,02), this is what I use. The appearance of the 60 completely distorts the mean in the second sample. Hi charles.. Then, everything 1.5 times this range above the third quartile value or 1.5-times it below the first quartile is an outlier. Should I replace the outliers with 1) the highest/lowest value in the entire dataset 2) the highest/lowest value in the data from the group where the outlier was found or 3) the higest/lowest value in the data from the group and particular time point where the outlier was found. The Excel AVERAGEIF function calculates the average of numbers in a range that meet supplied criteria. is the formula “winsorize” supposed to be already installed in excel? 5. You should enter a value that is big enough to eliminate any outlier; ideally you want the smallest such value. Excel has a WINMEAN function which outputs a single value which should be the mean of the values produced by the WINSORIZE function. is the formula not working. But I have a problem. One of the commonest ways of finding outliers in one-dimensional data is to mark as a potential outlier any point that is more than two standard deviations, say, from the mean (I am referring to sample means and standard deviations here and in what follows). Before I describe the error I will first describe the data being used. We use the following formula to calculate a z-score: z = (X – μ) / σ. where: X is a single raw data value; μ is the population mean; σ is the population standard deviation; You could define an observation to be an outlier if it has a z-score less than -3 or greater than 3. I will add this capability to the next release of the Real Statistics Resource Pack. I could transpose the dataset, but for the sake of visibility, currently the matrix format suits best. a single number? The scale of observations from A, B, and C are very different, and trimming their combined data would surely result from removal of data from A and C. Joe, Charles. Yes there is an error in the software. Excel Function: One approach for dealing with outliers is to throw away data that is either too big or too small. You can use the WINSORIZE function, although it is likely that your data set is so small that eliminating 1% of the data on each end doesn’t eliminate any data. The intuition behind Z-score is to describe any data point by finding their relationship with the Standard Deviation and Mean of the group of data points. Thanks, Melody, 7. σ is the population standard deviation; We can define an observation to be an outlier if it has a z-score less than -3 or greater than 3. and by the way, once the multiple imputation process is done as you describe it in your website, how can i manage to finally replace the missing data by the new data generated through the MI to run a new series of analysis? I don’t know for sure, but it probably depends on the nature of the outliers. When you use MI, you repeat the regression analysis a large number of times with different values for the missing data. 1. error "" "". I know what is an acceptable time, but I am experiencing a difficulty to decide what is are the outliers in the range of data (some are quite visible). Also, thank you so much for providing this resource for free – you are amazing. Is there a Standard Deviation excel formula on R1 that can compute the Standard Deviation with the outliers excluded withought having to manually remove the outliers from R1 dataset? C 1234 Rejecting outliers makes your data “impure.” You should only reject data points if you have a very good reason. Charles. This might be due to the range of cells to hold the answer.. How can I properly select the range of cell to hold the results (and therefore, get the desired results). This enables you to complete your analysis, but there is no set of values imputed for the missing data elements. cant’t I use the original data for the Levene’s test and the K-S test and replace the outliers only for the one way anova test? Exclude the Outliers Last week, a client asked about excluding some of the highest and lowest numbers from … Continue reading "Ignore Outliers with Excel TRIMMEAN" error Charles. For example, suppose R1 = {5, 4, 3, 20, 1, 4, 6, 4, 5, 6, 7, 1, 3, 7, 2}. It would be great if you could add an video and clarify the usage of the formula in the video :). It is each one of these columns that I would like get the Standard Deviation after the data has been trimmed. Then TRIMMEAN(R, 0.2) works as follows. Hi Monica, error (could it creates a bias in the multiple imputation?). TRIMMEAN works by first excluding values from the top and bottom of a data set, then calculating mean. Charles, Thank you for your advice. WINMEAN(R1, p, p1) = AVERAGE(WINSORIZE(R1, p, p1)). The WINSORIZE function is an array function. …. Also, find the trimmed and Winsorized means. Needless to say this was an exercise in futility with native Excel 2007 (later releases don’t help here either). Array Formulas and Functions I've tried various formats of the TrimData and get #Value error or a syntax error depending on the format used. {=WINSORIZE(\$F\$2:\$F\$169;0,025)}. I just checked and it certainly works on my computer. TRIMMEAN(R1, p) – calculates the mean of the data in the range R1 after first throwing away p% of the data, half from the top and half from the bottom. 6. Jeff, Nik, any datapoint that is more than 2 standard deviation is an outlier).. TRIMMEAN is a standard Excel function which is available in Excel 2007. See a great Master Excel Beginner to Advanced Course to improve your skills fast. It would be very beneficial is you published an example .xlsx file that contains the example you gave in the article. don’t really know what to do? What I mean to ask is that is this trimming certain amount of percentage from population or from value? Let’s get started with some statistics to find an outlier in Excel. An error value? That is correct. Outliers are unusual values in your dataset, and they can distort statistical analyses and violate their assumptions. Ah, that helps. However, I got an issue relating winsorizing. Excel provides the TRIMMEAN function for dealing with this issue. Charles. WINMEAN(R1, p) = Winsorized mean of the data in range R1 replacing the lowest and highest 100p/2 % of the data values. I officially owe you a beer! Hello Charles, one more question. A single value changes the mean height by 0.6m (2 feet) and the standard deviation by a whopping 2.16m (7 feet)! Charles, Can you tell me step by step how to WINSORIZED the data? It seemed that the WINSORIZE function accepts two parameters p (lowest data values) and p1 (highest data values). I use the formula identically for each cell from 2 to 169. The steps are described on the referenced webpage. This is a plausible outcome and is a credible result from the tests. Charles. I need to trim certain percentage from population outliners. Doyle, Louis, Louis, Two groups have been measured four times. I am trying trim my data set that is structured like this: Object Observation Trimmed observations I am learning a lot through this web course, but I am still having some issues that I hope you can easily address. Could it be a problem that my excel is in dutch? Home › Forums › Power Pivot › Average excluding outliers Tagged: Average, outliers, PowerPivot, stdev This topic contains 1 reply, has 2 voices, and was last updated by tomallan 4 years, 8 months ago. Thank you very much for your help. From what I've seen in workbooks over the years, SUM is the most frequently used Excel function, and AVERAGE is the runner-up. I used an [Enter] and a [CTL+SHFT+Enter] for all of the various formulas. when I replace my outliers (extreme values) or transformed them the result my anova test becomes meaningful but not the levene’s test which is a problem because Homogeneity of Variances is one of the conditions of one way anova test in the first place. How to remove Outliers using Z-score and Standard deviation? do you know what might be the issue? Outliers = Observations with z-scores > 3 or < -3. Thank you in advance for any advice you may provide. A 10% Winsorized sample replaces the two lowest elements by the third lowest and the two highest by the 3. Charles. error The WINSORIZE function is an array function, which outputs the values to retain after Winsorizing data. I am working on excel 2007 If for example your data is in range A1:A10 and you want to display the result in range C1:C10, you need to highlight range C1:C10 and enter the formula =WINSORIZE(A1:A10,.4) (here I have set the p value to .4) and press Ctrl-Shft-Enter. For example, suppose R1 = {5, 4, 3, 20, 1, 4, 6, 4, 5, 6, 7, 1, 3, 7, 2}. can you tell me, Kajol, I have a question regarding a set of data containing missing data at random and potential outliers that potentially impact the multiple regression i processed on the dataset, using only listless deletions that really shrieked the sample size. Our goal is to help you work faster in Excel. You can download an Excel file with all the examples on the website from the webpage Download Examples. a data element that is much bigger or much smaller than the other data elements. My predicament is that my dataset is structured in a matrix format (X being calendar week and Y is the year); thus I was wondering whether there is a possibility to get the output in the same format as the input range? {=trimdata(T11:T17,0,3)} #Value! I typed =WINSORIZE(\$C\$2:\$C\$993,.01) using your AddIns and it was going well. The data in this column is then placed (copied) in other columns (of which there are 10) based upon the price range that the stock falls into (<<\$5, \$5-\$10, \$10-\$25,…) and are labeled in the table according to a category number that corresponds to the price range (Cat1, Cat2, Cat3, …). 2. {=trimdata(Table36[Cat1],0,3)} #Value! I plan to add Grubbs’ test to the software shortly. … I am not sure what choice 3 means. The number of data points is provided as a percentage. Suppose your input data is placed in the range F2:F169. 2. To look for a better fitting multiple regression model, i’d like to apply the methods you describe regarding missing data and outliers. Your email address will not be published. 8. 3. Hey Charles .03 times 169 = 5.04. To remove the outliers we need to rank the objects by duration. The macros installed just fine, but they don’t seem to give correct results. C 1100 Timo, Tanja, At the moment I am using a stopping point of stdev/average = 0.4. Heh heh yes, yes. normal distribution. For data with approximately the same mean, the greater the spread, the greater the standard deviation. An outlier is nothing but the most extreme values present in the dataset. B 123 A 10% Winsorized sample replaces the two lowest elements by the third lowest and the two highest by the 3rd highest, resulting in the following data set: 10, 10, 10, 14, 16, 19, 22, 23, 25, 27, 27, 31, 37, 38, 40, 44, 45, 48, 48, 48. In Identifying Outliers and Missing Data we show how to identify potential outliers using a data analysis tool provided in the Real Statistics Resource Pack. See the webpage Examples Workbooks. Same with The values that are very unusual in the data as explained earlier. I want to run the grubbs outlier test on this data set and then have it report the numbers that are not outliers. Please see the following webpage for information about how to conduct Grubb’s outlier test in Excel. If you want both to be removed, then enter a higher cutoff value. What would be particularly useful would be a method where datum can be removed sequentially, providing a measure of significance at each step, to nomalize a data set. Charles. …. E.g. WINSORIZE(R1, p): array function which returns a column range which is the Winsorized version of R1 replacing the lowest and highest 100p/2 % of the data values. Heike, I want to find outliers in the data as a assignment but not gettng the function trimmean If you just press the Enter key you will get the result that you are seeing. In most cases, no outliers should be removed, by definition. B 500 Z-score is finding the distribution of data where mean is 0 and standard deviation is 1 i.e. To trim the data I created 1 more column (to become 10 once I get it working) and added the TrimData function into the first cell of the newly created column with the intent to copying it to the remaining cells in that row. If range is F2:F169 and I input the results of function into H2:H169 then for row 2 the formula should be for each cell anyway the same? {=trimdata([Cat1],0,3)} #Value! Charles, I would like to winsorise at 1% and 99% of data. I am look forward to that beer. Outliers can skew your statistical analyses, leading you to false or misleading […] You can change the shape of any output by using Real Statistics’ RESHAPE function. Thanks for sharing your AddInst. In other words, these numbers are either relatively very small or too big. Charles, Jeff, The results of this will then be used to calculate the average. But the new sheet made for the series of imputations returns the mark #VALUE. How might I achieve my desired results using an Excel spreadsheet. When performing data analysis, you usually assume that your values cluster around some central data point (a median). The one I have used is Grubbs which in most cases is reasonable. I need your help with my data collection. Written by Peter Rosenmai on 25 Nov 2013. For example, with 50 data points, 10% equals 5 values. Charles, hi Charles Is there a way which I can code the cells on the column “Trimmed observations” such that I can trim the collective observations of each object separately from the entire observations of all objects combined? {=TRIMDATA(\$F\$2:\$F\$169;0,025)}, Gives same value to all the cells. If the outliers represent normal events, then I would use your first result. 4. Set up a filter in your testing tool. However, the first dataset has values closer to the mean and the second dataset has values more spread out.To be more precise, the standard deviation for the first dataset is 3.13 and for the second set is 14.67.However, it's not easy to wrap your head around numbers like 3.13 or 14.67. In addition, there is a new Real Statistics function which extends the Excel function TRIMMEAN, defined as follows: TRIM_MEAN(R1, p, p1) = AVERAGE(TRIMDATA(R1, p, p1)), Note that TRIM_MEAN(R1, p) = TRIMMEAN(R1, p). You describe that the output of your TRIMDATA and the WINSORIZE function is a column range. One problem that we face in analyzing data is the presence of outliers, i.e. Also don’t enter the formula into any cells that overlap with range R1. 3. This isn't a real issue, except that I have some outliers that I am scientifically required to remove from the data. Excel Function: One approach for dealing with outliers is to throw away data that is either too big or too small. I tell people about your website on a regular basis. The following image shows how to calculate the mean and standard deviation for a dataset in Excel: We can then use the mean and standard deviation to find the z-score for each individual value in the dataset: The Excel AVERAGE function calculates the average (arithmetic mean) of supplied numbers. Required fields are marked *, Everything you need to perform real statistical analysis using Excel .. … … .. © Real Statistics 2020, One problem that we face in analyzing data is the presence of, For this example, it is obvious that 60 is a potential outlier. Thank you for your response. A 24 Is the variability fixed or is it itself variable ? WINSORIZE(R1, p, p1): array function which returns a column range which is the Winsorized version of R1 replacing the lowest 100p % of the data values and the highest 100p1 % of the data values. These values are called outliers (they lie outside the expected range). Sorry, but I don’t have any specific advice. Ben, Hypothesis tests that use the mean with the outlier are off the mark. You are probably ok provided the variances are not too unequal, but if they are then you mighyt want to consider using Welch’s ANOVA test instead of the usual ANOVA. For example: {1,2,3,4,5,10} is my data set, after finding the grubbs outlier {10} and removing that number from my calculations, the average is 3. You can use both visualizations and formulas to identify outliers in Excel. It sounds like you get different results based on whether or not you include some outliers. I can imagine doing them manually would be very time consuming, especially if there are many different objects. Your goal is to remove outliers and reduce skewness. If you need to write up a report of your data, be prepared to explain why you rejected the outliers using the formulas Q3+1.5(IQR) and Q1-1.5(IQR). Array formulas and functions. I am trying to do some calculations for Standard Deviation of data in a column. In general, finding the "Outliers" in a data set could be d… I can do it manually for a fixed set of data, but I prefer to automate the process, as I tend to use large Tables to hold all of my data and then use functions on a separate sheet to analyze the entire Table. However, after comparing the value produced by Excel (the value of 1% and 99% percentile) and the result of the AddIns I found them different. \$\begingroup\$ My only worry about using standard deviation to detect outliers (if you have such a large amount of data that you can't pore over the entire data set one item at a time, but have to automate it) is that a very extreme outlier might increase the standard deviation so much that moderate outliers would fail to be detected. I have downloaded and installed you software and am encountering a problem using one of the functions TrimData. This doesn’t have anything to do with the Real Statistics Resource Pack, and so if this doesn’t work then your Excel software is flawed. My questions is when I choose to winsorize my data, how to determine the value of p? If R1 contains n data elements and k = the largest whole number ≤ np/2, then the k largest items and the k smallest items are removed before calculating the mean. error "" "" My spreadsheet has only numeric data and I trimmed all the blank spaces. -Trent. For example, the mean of the sample {2, 3, 4, 5, 6} is 4, while the mean of {2, 3, 4, 5, 60} is 14.4. Martha, Best I have two questions: If we then square root this we get our standard deviation of 83.459. I understand that Tietjen-Moore test can be used with more than one outlier, but I need to look at in more detail. My intent here is to use the results of the trimmed data as input to the STDEV or SDDEVP. And I also downloaded the example. It helped me a great deal thus far. Removing these outliers will give you a better picture of your data. or the opposite? Thank you for your assistance and for providing this software. I tried to winsorize my data with 1% (percentile 1% and 99%). This range consists of 168 cells. The above code will remove the outliers from the dataset. AVERAGEIF criteria can include logical operators (>,,=) and wildcards (*,?) Keep up the good work! I have the same problem with the WINSORIZE command as Mohammed and Maria. See the following webpage for more details on how to handle array functions. You could use the Real Statistics TRIMDATA function three times, one for each range. Ctrl-Shift-Enter is how Excel recognizes an array formula. In this case, the action on the lowest data values is governed by p and the action on the highest data values is governed by p1. Grubb’s Outlier Test Suppose you want to place the output in range C1:C62780. error Data contain a blank in the columns Charles. The number of data points to exclude is provided as a percentage. The easiest way I can think of is to first Winsorize the data and then perform the usual a analyses. In a data set like this, it’s easy enough to spot and deal with those outliers manually. amazing. formula {=TRIMDATA(\$F\$2:\$F\$169;0,03)} gives same number/result for each cell. Charles, hi charles TRIMMEAN(R1, p) – calculates the mean of the data in the range R1 after first throwing away p% of the data, half from the top and half from the bottom. {=trimdata(T13:T17,0,3)} #Value! Lots of people misunderstand the notion of removing outliers. I also installed your resources pack – but couldn’t find the formula there either but only the function of how to identify outliers. Which is the best method to remove outliers out of TRIMMEAN, IQR method and mean / std dev method (the one with +-2.5 cut off)? Are there any other things I overlooked? Charles. It is a quite big excel file. can u help me? I had a question, but I’ve managed to figure it out. Please see the webpage Array Functions and Formulas for more information about how to use array formulas in general. Instead you need to highlight the range where the output goes and press Ctrl-Shft-Enter. I’m trying to do a one way anova test. In my excel 2007 it’s somehow not. To get more information about how you use array formulas and functions in Excel, refer to the webpage I have the same problem with the WINSORIZE command as Mohammad. Various calculations are performed on a row by row basis and stored in various columns, one of which is a calculated percent. In that case I think I am not sure am I using the trimdata formula correctly. My objective here is to trim all observations belonging to Object A, followed by Object B, and so on. Using the Median Absolute Deviation to Find Outliers. …. Update: This capability has now been added to the Real Statistics Resource Pack in Release 2.16. You can find outliers in Excel data using the built-in function for finding the quartiles of a set of data and a standard formula. Even if your country uses the euro you should still use the dollar sign \$ for absolute addressing. Since WINSORIZE is an array function, you need to press Ctrl-Shift-Enter (i.e. My data’s range C2 : C499, I don’t know why you aren’t able to get the winsorize process to work. Thanks. When I use these functions I only get the data in C4 or E4. I first read Alberto Ferrari’s blog post on dynamic ranking in Power Pivot . Charles, could you provide me with the excel sheet for the posted example as i tried to do it my self but i couldn’t, Keshk, Would you agree, or do you see other functions used more often than those two? A 10 I’d already follow your step but still doesn’t work. Consider the following sample: 4, 6, 10, 14, 16, 19, 22, 23, 25, 27, 27, 31, 37, 38, 40, 44, 45, 48, 50, 80. So it have outliers and spikes. Glad I could help you out. I am using the Winsorize function but keep getting the “#VALUE” error message (wrong data type error). When you say “meaningful” do you mean “significant” or “not significant” or something else? That way I could look at your working example and figure out what I did wrong. The WINSORIZE function has been part of the Real Statistics Resource since Release 2.16 in July 2014. 2. If you send me an Excel spreadsheet with your data I will try to figure out what is going wrong. In any case, if you change your data, then you need to check normality (presumably using Shapiro-Wilk) and homogeneity of variances (e.g. If using TRIMMEAN function, how to decide if we should take a cut off value as 20% or 30%? I would like to winsorize my outliers (identified by outlier labelling rule), but I am unsure which number I should replace them with because of my experimental design. From the table, it’s easy to see how a single outlier can distort reality. I was unable to get your functions to work as expected. Half of this value is 2.52. TRIMDATA(R1, p, p1): array function which returns a column range equivalent to R1 after removing the lowest 100p % of the data values and the highest 100p1 % of the data values. After deleting the outliers, we should be careful not to run the outlier detection test once again. If the outliers are errors in data collection or reporting, then you should probably remove them first, but if they represent real data, then you probably shouldn’t remove them at all. Thus the result of AVERAGE(WINSORIZE(\$C\$2:\$C\$993,.01)), after pressing Ctrl-Shift-Enter, should be the same as WINMEAN(\$C\$2:\$C\$993,.01), after pressing Enter. Charles. Unfortunately, the Ctrl-Shift-Enter also doesn’t work. if you are going to analyze the data by group, then probably choice 2 is the right one. Excel provides a few useful functions to help manage your outliers, so let’s take a look. Besides fixing the error, based on your input, I am changing the way the WINSORIZE and TRIMDATA functions work. The percentage can be input either in decimal format or percent format: It's important to note that TRIMMEAN rounds excluded data points down to the nearest multiple of 2. error Data did not contain a blank in the columns I used your formula “{=winsorize(A\$1:A\$62780, 0.03)}” Hello Charles, You should now focus on whether the “outliers” represent normal random outcomes (e.g. Given the above that would mean only 1 column in any 1 row would have data and the others would be blank. Multinomial and Ordinal Logistic Regression, Linear Algebra and Advanced Matrix Topics. If you send me an Excel file with your data I will try to figure out what is going wrong. Thanks in advance for your assistance. =trimdata([Cat1],0,3) #Value! it’s A1:A10 on the first cell, A2:A11 on the second, etc.). The number of data points is provided as a percentage. Viewing 2 posts - 1 through 2&hellip "Outliers" are defined as numeric values in any random data set, which have an unusually high deviation from either the statistical mean (average) or the median value. I stop when the distribution below this point becomes as normal as possible. 1. in say 500 observations, you expect some outliers) or some problem (in measurement or something else). Hello Phillip, The default value is 3. Then I go to the highest value in the list, start removing points and calculating an average and standard deviation at each removal. Can you help me? If so, you need to increase this percentage. Hi Charles, In the image below, the outliers are reasonably easy to spot—the value of two assigned to Eric and the value of 173 assigned to Ryan. Hi Charles! B 111 In any case, if you send me an Excel file with your data I will try to see why you aren’t able to winsorize your data. Thank you so much for your perfect add-on. It is not recommended this be used sequentially to remove more than one outlier. Your “Winsorizing” function has totally saved the day! Excel provides the TRIMMEAN function for dealing with this issue. If using TRIMMEAN, and for example it removes 2 lowest data points (0,1 for example) but I have one more data point as “1” so it will remove one “1” and will not remove the another “1” so is that nor wrong? In this case, TRIMMEAN will round 5 down to 4, then exclude two values from the top, of the data set, and two values from the bottom of the data set. Discovered my first problem is that the equations are not compatible with Excel tables. I also tried several of the above using a ";" (as Timo had in his entry) and a ":" (which you used in your response to Timo). thanks. For this example, it is obvious that 60 is a potential outlier. Real Statistics Functions: The Real Statistics Resource Pack supplies the following functions: TRIMDATA(R1, p): array function which returns a column range equivalent to R1 after removing the lowest and highest 100p/2 % of the data values. If you send me an Excel file with your data, I can check to see whether there is a problem. In fact, the median for both samples is 4. How to use Outlier Tests in R Code (3) "It's hard". Charles. I believe many people feel this is very useful for them. How to Remove Outliers in R When I used =WINSORIZE(A4:A23,.3) I always get just 3, 3, 3,… instead of 3, 4, 6, 9,…, Mohammad, Hi Charles From here we can remove outliers outside of a normal range by filtering out anything outside of the (average - deviation) and (average + deviation). Unfortunately, it doesn’t work despite Ctrl-Shift-Enter. A 12 Could you help me what causing the difference? Even without tables I still cannot reproduce your functionality. In. The Excel TRIMMEAN function calculates mean (average) while excluding outliers. In every cell I get the same as in the first cell. Observation: Since 4 data elements have been replaced, the degrees of freedom of any statistical test needs to be reduced by 4. I don’t get the data for the rest of the column. I assume I am doing something wrong here but I can not see it. Charles. Example 1: Find the trimmed and Winsorized data for p = 30% for the data in range A4:A23 of Figure 1. Thank you very much for identifying this error. We create short videos, and clear examples of formulas, functions, pivot tables, conditional formatting, and charts. How do I get data for the entire column and not just for the first one? Following my question here, I am wondering if there are strong views for or against the use of standard deviation to detect outliers (e.g. Thank you very much in advance ! Charles, Jeff, The Excel MODE function returns the most frequently occurring number in a numeric data set. The input range to the Winsorize() function shifts on each cell. so if I replace my outliers I have to redo the Levene’s test and the k-s test with the new data set? Charles. Get over 200 Excel shortcuts for Windows and Mac in one handy PDF. Should i use for cell locking € symbol? =trimdata(T11:T17,0,3) #Value! how much the individual data points are spread out from the mean.For example, consider the two data sets: and Both have the same mean 25. Thus the largest element (20) and the smallest element (1) are removed from R1 to get R2 = {5, 4, 3, 4, 6, 4, 5, 6, 7, 1, 3, 7, 2}. Note also that =AVERAGE(H2:H169) will have the same value as =TRIMMEAN(F2:F169:0,03). =trimdata(T13:T17,0,3) #Value! Thank you for your help, Sohail, 500 observations, you repeat the regression analysis a large number of data tools! The outlier in the next release of the values from A1: A10 on the format used distort analyses! Question regarding the example for using the WINSORIZE function is a function and will appear.
