{title:Description}
{pstd}
{opt sratio} calculates and displays a variety of ratio study statistics in a single table. These include measures of appraisal level, appraisal uniformity
(dispersion and concentration), and reliability.
{pstd}
With the {opt by} option, {opt sratio} allows you to display the output by categories of a grouping variable.
{pstd}
With the different options available, {opt sratio} allows more flexibility in terms of the measures of performance presented.
{pstd}
{opt sratio} takes, as input, a list of two scale variables that have positive values.{opt sratio} implicitly computes the ratio of these two variables
by dividing the first variable (the numerator) by the second variable (denominator) on the list provided ({varlist}). In appraisal ratio studies,
the numerator could be the appraisal or assessment value and the denominator could be the market value.
