Hi Guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am trying to measure variability in a part for my sensor which l do not know the true value. So l decided that a good way to measure variability in this case would be to measure precision of my data points as l change this part on the sensor. So l was wondering, can l compare the absolute deviation and mean absolute deviation and calculate the percentage deviation between the two, and then use the percentage deviation as a number which tells me something about variability in this part.

Thanks.
