Transcript of "Nonparametric tests"

  1. 1. NON-PARAMETRIC TESTS ARUN KUMAR .P 13-501-003
  2. 2.  These tests do not require any specific form for the distribution of the population is called nonparametric tests.  Nonparametric methods provide an alternative series of statistical methods that require no or very limited assumptions to be made about the data.  There is a wide range of methods that can be used in different circumstances,
  3. 3. Types of Non-parametric test
  4. 4. Decision making/ forecasting. Studying populations that take on a ranked order (such as movie reviews receiving one to four stars) Simple analysis.
  5. 5. The following is a table which identifies a particular normal test and its nonparametric (or rank) counterpart.
  6. 6. SIGN TEST
  7. 7. STEPS REQUIRED IN PERFORMING THE SIGN TEST 1 State the null hypothesis and, in particular, the hypothesized value for comparison 2 Allocate a sign (+ or –) to each observation according to whether it is greater or less than the hypothesized value.
  8. 8.  3 Determine: N+ = the number of observations greater than the hypothesized value  N– = the number of observations less than the hypothesized value  S = the smaller of N+ and N–  4 Calculate an appropriate P value
  9. 9. WILCOXON RANK SUM TEST • The Wilcoxon Rank Sum test is used to test for a difference between two samples. It is the nonparametric counterpart to the two-sample Z or t test. Instead of comparing two population means, we compare two population medians.
  10. 10. STEPS REQUIRED IN PERFORMING THE WILCOXON RANK SUM 1 Rank all observations in increasing order of magnitude, ignoring which group they come from. If two observations have the same magnitude, regardless of group, then they are given an average ranking. 2 Add up the ranks in the smaller of the two groups (S). If the two groups are of equal size then either one can be chosen. 3 Calculate an appropriate P value.
  11. 11. WILCOXON SIGNED RANK TEST • The Wilcoxon Signed Rank test is the nonparametric equivalent to the one-sample Z or t test and the matched pairs test. • It is used when we want to make inferences about the mean of one population or the mean difference between two populations in a matched pairs setting.
  12. 12. Wilcoxon signed rank test statistic.
  13. 13. Wilcoxon signed rank test consists of five basic steps 1 State the null hypothesis and, in particular, the hypothesized value for comparison. 2 Rank all observations in increasing order of magnitude, ignoring their sign. Ignore any observations that are equal to the hypothesized value. If two observations have the same magnitude, regardless of sign, then they are given an average ranking
  14. 14. 3 Allocate a sign (+ or –) to each observation according to whether it is greater or less than the hypothesized value (as in the sign test) 4 Calculate: R+ = sum of all positive ranks R– = sum of all negative ranks R = smaller of R+ and R– 5 Calculate an appropriate P value
  15. 15. KRUSKAL-WALLIS TEST  It is used to compare more than two populations as long as our data come from a continuous distribution.  Wallis test we are testing to see if our population medians are equal.  The idea of the Kruskal-Wallis rank test is to rank all the responses from all groups together and then apply one-way ANOVA to the ranks rather than to the original observations.
  16. 16. There are N observations in all. Rank all N observations and let R i be the sum of the ranks for the ith sample. The
  17. 17. ADVANTAGES OF NONPARAMETRIC METHODS  Nonparametric methods require no or very limited assumptions to be made about the format of the data, and they may therefore be preferable when the assumptions required for parametric methods are not valid.  Nonparametric methods can be useful for dealing with unexpected, outlying observations that might be problematic with a parametric approach.
  18. 18. Nonparametric methods are intuitive and are simple to carryout by hand, for small samples at least. Nonparametric methods are often useful in the analysis of ordered categorical data in which assignation of scores to a individual categories may be inappropriate.
  19. 19. DISADVANTAGES OF NONPARAMETRIC METHODS  Nonparametric methods may lack power as compared with more traditional approaches This is a particular concern if the sample size is small or if the assumptions for the corresponding parametric method hold.  Nonparametric methods are geared toward hypothesis testing rather than estimation of effects. It is often possible to obtain nonparametric estimates and associated confidence intervals, but this is not generally
  20. 20. Tied values can be problematic when these are common, and adjustments to the test statistic may be necessary. Appropriate computer software for nonparametric methods can be limited, although the situation is improving. In addition, how a software package deals with tied values or how it obtains appropriate P values may not always be obvious.
