Nonparametric Statistics
An Introduction

November 1992 | 96 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Through the use of actual research investigations that have appeared in recent social science journals, Gibbons shows the reader the specific methodology and logical rationale for many of the best-known and most frequently used nonparametric methods that are applicable to most small and large sample sizes. The methods are organized according to the type of sample structure that produced the data to be analyzed, and the inference types covered are limited to location tests, such as the sign test, the Mann-Whitney-Wilcoxon test, the Kruskal-Wallis test and Friedman's test. The formal introduction of each test is followed by a data example, calculated first by hand and then by computer.
Location Tests for Single and Paired Samples (Sign Test and Wilcoxon Signed Rank Test)
Confidence Interval Estimates of the Median and Median Difference for Single and Paired Samples
Location Tests and Confidence Intervals for Two Independent Samples (Mann-Whitney-Wilcoxon Test)
Location Tests and Multiple Comparisons for k>3 Mutually Independent Samples (Kruskal-Wallis Test)
Location Tests and Multiple Comparisons for k>3 Related Samples (Friedman's Test)
