In Hive itself? Unfortunately, the answer is simply no -- as the language definition manual shows, that statistic is simply not built in. In addition to the language manual, you can get more information on statistics in development in Hive here and here.
Having said that, there are plenty of ways to calculate Kendall's W on data that's in Hive.
You could write out the data to a file or query it into R or a statistical package such as SAS, Stat, MATLAB, Excel, etc then run your calculation and, if necessary, write your results back to Hive.
In R, for instance, you could do something like this:
install.packages("RODBC") require(RODBC) db <- odbcConnect("Hive_DB") hql <- "select * from table A" data <- sqlQuery(db , hql) kenw <- cor(x = data$a, y = data$b, method="kendall") sqlSave(db, kenw, tablename = "new_table_of_kendall_coef")
or (if using Linux or Unix) then you could use
RHive without needing to use an ODBC name.
Another way to go about it would be to take the functions that do exist in Hive (which you linked to) and calculate Kendall's coefficient yourself with a custom function. As to how to specifically implement that, well you'd probably want to post on Cross Validated (stats.stackexchange.com).
