Dear roman_max,

» My question is: does PE and GMR represent different metrics, numerically and/or statistically?


» On the one hand GMR by definition is a ratio of LSM T/LSM R

No. This is PE. The GMR is the ratio of geometric means, not of LSM (LSMEAN in SAS-speak). For more details on how to calculate LSM and the difference between LSM and geometric mean, see this oldie.

PE and GMR will be identical if you have a balanced study (same number of subjects in sequence RT and sequence TR). If the study is unbalanced (e.g. if you have a dropout), you'll get different results. The difference is usually minimal, but can be more important if you have an outlier.

I believe there is no philosophical high-road in science,
with epistemological signposts. No, we are in a jungle
and find our way by trial and error,
building our road behind us as we proceed.    Max Born
