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.

That which is static and repetitive is boring.
That which is dynamic and random is confusing.
