Any phi percentile measure of deviation can be constructed according to D k = 1/k (P a - P b ), where P a and P b are selected percentiles, and k is the number of standard deviations involved and is dependent on a and b. Measures constructed in this fashion are directly comparable with each other. As a measure of maximum homogeneity, one can use the maximum value of D k .
