Many of those methods require normally distributed populations and are based on sampling from a population with specific parameters, such as the mean , standard deviation , or population proportion p. Review

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 5 Definitions  Parametric tests have requirements about the nature or shape of the populations involved.  Nonparametric tests do not require that samples come from populations with normal distributions or have any other particular distributions. Consequently, nonparametric tests are called distribution-free tests. Preview

Nonparametric methods can be applied to a wide variety of situations because they do not have the more rigid requirements of the corresponding parametric methods. In particular, nonparametric methods do not require normally distributed populations. 2. Unlike parametric methods, nonparametric methods can often be applied to categorical data, such as the genders of survey respondents.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 7 Disadvantages of Nonparametric Methods 1. Nonparametric methods tend to waste information because exact numerical data are often reduced to a qualitative form. 2. Nonparametric tests are not as efficient as parametric tests, so with a nonparametric test we generally need stronger evidence (such as a larger sample or greater differences) in order to reject a null hypothesis.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 9 Definitions Data are sorted when they are arranged according to some criterion, such as smallest to the largest or best to worst. A rank is a number assigned to an individual sample item according to its order in the sorted list. The first item is assigned a rank of 1, the second is assigned a rank of 2, and so on.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 10 Handling Ties in Ranks Find the mean of the ranks involved and assign this mean rank to each of the tied items. Sorted Data 4 5 10 11 12 Rank 1 3 5 6 7.5 Mean is 3. Mean is 7.5. Preliminary Ranking 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 12 Key Concept The main objective of this section is to understand the sign test procedure, which involves converting data values to plus and minus signs, then testing for disproportionately more of either sign.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 13 Definition The sign test is a nonparametric (distribution free) test that uses plus and minus signs to test different claims, including: 1)Claims involving matched pairs of sample data; 2)Claims involving nominal data; 3)Claims about the median of a single population.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 14 Basic Concept of the Sign Test The basic idea underlying the sign test is to analyze the frequencies of the plus and minus signs to determine whether they are significantly different.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 18 Requirements The sample data have been randomly selected. Note: There is no requirement that the sample data come from a population with a particular distribution, such as a normal distribution.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 19 Notation for Sign Test x = the number of times the less frequent sign occurs n = the total number of positive and negative signs combined

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 20 Test Statistic For n  25 : x (the number of times the less frequent sign occurs) z = For n > 25 : n ( x + 0.5) – n 2 2

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 21 Critical Values For n  25, critical x values are in Table A-7. For n > 25, critical z values are in Table A-2.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 22 Caution When applying the sign test in a one-tailed test, we need to be very careful to avoid making the wrong conclusion when one sign occurs significantly more often than the other, but the sample data contradict the alternative hypothesis. See the following example.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 23 Claims Involving Matched Pairs When using the sign test with data that are matched pairs, we convert the raw data to plus and minus signs as follows: 1.Subtract each value of the second variable from the corresponding value of the first variable. 2.Record only the sign of the difference found in step 1. Exclude ties: that is, any matched pairs in which both values are equal.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 24 Key Concept Underlying This Use of the Sign Test If the two sets of data have equal medians, the number of positive signs should be approximately equal to the number of negative signs.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 25 Example: Table 13-3 includes some of the weights listed in Data Set 3 in Appendix B. Those weights were measured from college students in September and April of their freshman year. Use the sample data in Table 13-3 with a 0.05 significance level to test the claim that there is no difference between the September weights and the April weights. Use the sign test.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 26 H 0 : The median of the differences is equal to 0. H 1 : The median of the differences is not equal to 0.  = 0.05 (in two tails) x = minimum (7, 2) = 2 (From Table 13-3, there are 7 negative signs and 2 positive signs.) Critical value = 1 (From Table A-7 where n = 9 and  = 0.05) Example:

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 27 H 0 : The median of the differences is equal to 0. H 1 : The median of the differences is not equal to 0. With a test statistic of x = 4 and a critical value of 1, we fail to reject the null hypothesis of no difference. There is not sufficient evidence to warrant rejection of the claim that the median of the differences is equal to 0. Example:

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 28 We conclude that the September and April weights appear to be about the same. (If we use the parametric t test for matched pairs (Section 9-4), we conclude that the mean difference is not zero, so the September weights and April weights appear to be different.) The conclusion should be qualified with the limitations noted in the article about the study. Only Rutgers students were used, and study subjects were volunteers instead of being a simple random sample. Example:

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 29 Claims Involving Nominal Data The nature of nominal data limits the calculations that are possible, but we can identify the proportion of the sample data that belong to a particular category. Then we can test claims about the corresponding population proportion p.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 30 Example: The Genetics and IVF Institute conducted a clinical trial of its methods for gender selection. As of this writing, 668 of 726 babies born to parents using the XSORT method of gender selection were girls. Use the sign test and a 0.05 significance level to test the claim that this method of gender selection is effective in increasing the likelihood of a baby girl. The procedures are for cases in which n > 25. Note that the only requirement is that the sample data are randomly selected. H 0 : p = 0.5 (the proportion of girls is 0.5) H 1 : p > 0.5 (girls are more likely)

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 31 Example: Denoting girls by the positive sign (+) and boys by the negative sign (–), we have 668 positive signs and 58 negative signs. Test statistic x = minimum(668, 58) = 58 Test whether 58 boys is low enough to be significant so it is a left-tailed test.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 32 Example: Since n = 726 (> 25), the test statistic x = 58 is converted to the test statistic x as follows: n ( x + 0.5) – z = n 2 2 (58 + 0.5) – z = 726 2 2 = –22.60

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 33 Example: With  = 0.05 in a left-tailed test, the critical value is z = – 1.645. The test statistic z = –22.60 is in the critical region bounded by z = –1.645.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 34 Example: We reject the null hypothesis that the proportion of girls is equal to 0.5. There is sufficient evidence to support the claim that girls are more likely with the XSORT method. The XSORT method of gender selection does appear to be effective in increasing the likelihood of a girl.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 35 Claims About the Median of a Single Population The negative and positive signs are based on the claimed value of the median.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 36 Example: Body Temperature Data Set 2 in Appendix B includes measured body temperatures of adults. Use the 106 temperatures listed for 12 A.M. on Day 2 with the sign test to test the claim that the median is less than 98.6ºF. Of the 106 subjects, 68 had temperatures below 98.6ºF, 23 had temperatures above 98.6ºF, and 15 had temperatures equal to 98.6ºF. H 0 : Median is equal to 98.6°F. H 1 : Median is less than 98.6°F. Since the claim is that the median is less than 98.6°F, the test involves only the left tail.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 37 Example: Body Temperature Discard the 15 zeros. Use ( – ) to denote the 68 temperatures below 98.6°F, and use ( + ) to denote the 23 temperatures above 98.6°F. So n = 91 and x = 23

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 38 Example: Body Temperature ( x + 0.5) – z = n 2 2 n (23 + 0.5) – z = 91 2 2 = – 4.61

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 39 Example: Body Temperature We use Table A-2 to get the critical z value of – 1.645. The test statistic of z = –4.61 falls into the critical region. We reject the null hypothesis. We support the claim that the median body temperature of healthy adults is less than 98.6°F.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 41 Recap In this section we have discussed: Sign tests where data are assigned plus or minus signs and then tested to see if the number of plus and minus signs is equal. Sign tests can be performed on claims involving: Matched pairs Nominal data The median of a single population

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 43 Key Concept The Wilcoxon signed-ranks test involves the conversion of the sample data ranks. This test can be used for two different applications.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 44 The Wilcoxon signed-ranks test is a nonparametric test that uses ranks for these applications: Definition 1.Test a null hypothesis that the population of matched pairs has differences with a median equal to zero. 2.Test a null hypothesis that a single population has a claimed value of the median.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 45 Use the Wilcoxon signed-ranks test with matched pairs for the following null and alternative hypotheses: Objective H 0 : The matched pairs have differences that come from a population with a median equal to zero. H 1 :The matched pairs have differences that come from a population with a nonzero median.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 46 1. The data consist of matched pairs that have been randomly selected. 2. The population of differences (found from the pairs of data) has a distribution that is approximately symmetric, meaning that the left half of its histogram is roughly a mirror image of its right half. (There is no requirement that the data have a normal distribution.) Wilcoxon Signed-Ranks Test Requirements

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 47 Notation T = the smaller of the following two sums: 1. The sum of the positive ranks of the nonzero differences d 2. The absolute value of the sum of the negative ranks of the nonzero differences d

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 48 Test Statistic for the Wilcoxon Signed-Ranks Test for Matched Pairs For n  30, the test statistic is T. z = For n > 30, the test statistic is 4 T – n ( n + 1) n(n +1) (2n +1) 24

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 49 Critical Values for the Wilcoxon Signed-Ranks Test for Matched Pairs For n  30, the critical T value is found in Table A-8. For n > 30, the critical z values are found in Table A-2.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 50 Procedure for Finding the Value of the Test Statistic Step 1: For each pair of data, find the difference d by subtracting the second value from the first. Keep the signs, but discard any pairs for which d = 0. Step 2: Ignore the signs of the differences, then sort the differences from lowest to highest and replace the differences by the corresponding rank value. When differences have the same numerical value, assign to them the mean of the ranks involved in the tie.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 51 Procedure for Finding the Value of the Test Statistic Step 3: Attach to each rank the sign difference from which it came. That is, insert those signs that were ignored in step 2. Step 4:Find the sum of the absolute values of the negative ranks. Also find the sum of the positive ranks. Step 5:Let T be the smaller of the two sums found in Step 4. Either sum could be used, but for a simplified procedure we arbitrarily select the smaller of the two sums.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 52 Step 6:Let n be the number of pairs of data for which the difference d is not 0. Step 7:Determine the test statistic and critical values based on the sample size, as shown above. Step 8:When forming the conclusion, reject the null hypothesis if the sample data lead to a test statistic that is in the critical region that is, the test statistic is less than or equal to the critical value(s). Otherwise, fail to reject the null hypothesis. Procedure for Finding the Value of the Test Statistic

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 53 Example: The first two rows of Table 13-4 include some of the weights from Data Set 3 in Appendix B. Those weights were measured from college students in September and April of their freshman year. Use the sample data in the first two rows of Table 13-4 to test the claim that there is no difference between the September weights and the April weights. Use the Wilcoxon signed-ranks test with a 0.05 significance level.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 54 Example: Requirements are satisfied: subjects volunteered, but proceed as if simple random sample; STATDISK-generated histogram of the differences (3rd row) does not appear symmetric (next slide), but with only 9 differences it is not extreme so consider this requirement to be satisfied

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 56 Example: H 0 : There is no difference between the times of the first and second trials. H 1 : There is a difference between the times of the first and second trials.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 57  The ranks of differences in row four of the table are found by ranking the absolute differences, handling ties by assigning the mean of the ranks.  The signed ranks in row five of the table are found by attaching the sign of the differences to the ranks. Example: Freshman Weight Gain  The differences in row three of the table are found by computing the September weight – April weight.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 58 Example: Freshman Weight Gain Step 1:In Table 13- 4, the row of differences is obtained by computing this difference for each pair of data: d = September weight – April weight Step 2:Ignoring their signs, we rank the absolute differences from lowest to highest. Step 3:The bottom row of Table 13- 4 is created by attaching to each rank the sign of the corresponding differences. Calculate the Test Statistic

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 59 Example: Freshman Weight Gain If there really is no difference between the weights (as in the null hypothesis), we expect the sum of the positive ranks to be approximately equal to the sum of the absolute values of the negative ranks. Step 4:We now find the absolute of the sum values of the negative ranks, and we also find the sum of the positive ranks. Calculate the Test Statistic

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 60 Example: Freshman Weight Gain Absolute value of sum of negative ranks: 40 (–7 + –5.5 + –2.5 + –8 + –9 + –5.5 + –2.5) Sum of positive ranks: 5 (2.5 + 2.5) Step 5:Let T be the smaller of the two sums found in Step 4, we find that T = 5. Step 6:Let n be the number of pairs of data for which the difference d is not 0, we have n = 9. Calculate the Test Statistic Step 4 (cont.):

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 61 Example: Freshman Weight Gain Step 7:n = 9 (n ≤ 30) test statistic T = 5. From Table A- 8, using n = 9 and  = 0.05 in two tails, critical value is 6 Step 8: The test statistic T = 5 is less than or equal to the critical value of 6, so we reject the null hypothesis. We conclude that the September and April weights do not appear to be about the same. Calculate the Test Statistic

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 62 Recap In this section we have discussed: The Wilcoxon signed-ranks test which uses matched pairs. The hypothesis is that the matched pairs have differences that come from a population with a median equal to zero.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 64 Key Concept The Wilcoxon rank-sum test uses ranks of values from two independent samples to test the null hypothesis that the two populations have equal medians.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 65 Key Concept The basic idea underlying the Wilcoxon rank-sum test is this: If two samples are drawn from identical populations and the individual values are all ranked as one combined collection of values, then the high and low ranks should fall evenly between the two samples. If the low ranks are found predominantly in one sample and the high ranks are found predominantly in the other sample, we suspect that the two populations have different medians.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 66 Basic Concept If two samples are drawn from identical populations and the individual values are all ranked as one combined collection of values, then the high and low ranks should fall evenly between the two samples.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 67 Caution Don’t confuse the Wilcoxon rank-sum test for two independent samples with the Wilcoxon signed-ranks test for matched pairs. Use Internal Revenue Service as the mnemonic for IRS to remind us of “Independent: Rank Sum.”

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 68 Definition The Wilcoxon rank-sum test is a nonparametric test that uses ranks of sample data from two independent populations. It is used to test the null hypothesis that the two independent samples come from populations with equal medians. H 0 : The two samples come from populations with equal medians. H 1 : The two samples come from populations with different medians.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 70 Requirements 1. There are two independent simple random samples. 2. Each of the two samples has more than 10 values. Note: There is no requirement that the two populations have a normal distribution or any other particular distribution.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 72 Critical values can be found in Table A-2 (because the test statistic is based on the normal distribution). P-Values can be found using the z test statistic and Table A-2. Critical and P-Values for the Wilcoxon Rank-Sum Test

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 73 Procedure for Finding the Value of the Test Statistic 1. Temporarily combine the two samples into one big sample, then replace each sample value with its rank. 2. Find the sum of the ranks for either one of the two samples. 3. Calculate the value of the z test statistic, where either sample can be used as ‘Sample 1’.

All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 74 Table 13-5 lists the braking distances (in ft) of samples of 4-cylinder cars and 6-cylinder cars Use a 0.05 significance level to test the claim that 4- cylinder cars and 6-cylinder cars have the same median braking distance. The numbers in parentheses are their ranks beginning with a rank of 1 assigned to the lowest value of 122. R 1 and R 2 at the bottom denote the sum of ranks. Example:

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 75 Example: The requirements of having two independent and random samples and each having more than 10 values are met. H 0 : The braking distances of 4-cylinder cars and 6-cylinder cars have the same median. H 1 : The braking distances of 4-cylinder cars and 6-cylinder cars have different medians.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 76 Example: Procedure 1.Rank all 25 BMI measurements combined. This is done in Table 13-5. 2. Find the sum of the ranks of either one of the samples. For 4-cylinder cars it is R = 12.5 + 23 + … + 11 = 180.5

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 78 Example: The test is two-tailed because a large positive value of z would indicate that the higher ranks are found disproportionately in Sample 1, and a large negative value of z would indicate that disproportionately more lower ranks are found in Sample 1. In either case, we would have strong evidence against the claim that the two samples come from populations with equal medians.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 79 Example: We have a two tailed test (with  = 0.05), so the critical values are 1.96 and –1.96. The test statistic of z = 0.63 does not fall within the critical region, so we fail to reject the null hypothesis that the braking distance of 4-cylinder cars and 6-cylinder cars have the same median. It appears that 4-cylinder cars and 6-cylinder cars have braking distances with the same median.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 80 Recap In this section we have discussed: The Wilcoxon Rank-Sum Test for Two Independent Samples. It is used to test the null hypothesis that the two independent samples come from populations with equal medians.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 82 Key Concept This section introduces the Kruskal-Wallis test, which uses ranks of data from three or more independent samples to test the null hypothesis that the samples come from populations with equal medians.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 83 We compute the test statistic H, which has a distribution that can be approximated by the chi-square (  2 ) distribution as long as each sample has at least 5 observations. When we use the chi-square distribution in this context, the number of degrees of freedom is k – 1, where k is the number of samples. Kruskal-Wallis Test

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 84 The Kruskal-Wallis test (also called the H test) is a nonparametric test that uses ranks of simple random samples from three or more independent populations. It is used to test the null hypothesis that the independent samples come from populations with the equal medians. Definition H 0 :The samples come from populations with equal medians. H 1 :The samples come from populations with medians that are not all equal.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 89 Procedure for Finding the Value of the Test Statistic H The test statistic H is basically a measure of the variance of the rank sums R 1, R 2, …, R k. If the ranks are distributed evenly among the sample groups, then H should be a relatively small number. If the samples are very different, then the ranks will be excessively low in some groups and high in others, with the net effect that H will be large.

The data are from the Chapter Problem in Chapter 12. Test the claim that the three samples come from populations with medians that are all equal. Use a 0.05 significance level.

Because each sample has at least five observations, the distribution of H is approximately a chi-square distribution. Example: df = k – 1 = 3 – 1 = 2 α = 0.05 (right-tail) From Table A-4 the critical value = 5.991.

All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 97 Example: The test statistic 5.774 is NOT in the critical region bounded by 5.991, so we fail to reject the null hypothesis of equal medians. There is not sufficient evidence to reject the claim that chest deceleration measurements from small cars, medium cars, and large cars all have equal medians. The medians do not appear to be different.

It tests the hypothesis that three or more populations have equal means. The populations do not have to be normally distributed.

All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 100 Key Concept This section describes the nonparametric method of the rank correlation test, which uses paired data to test for an association between two variables. In Chapter 10 we used paired sample data to compute values for the linear correlation coefficient r, but in this section we use ranks as a the basis for computing the rank correlation coefficient r s.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 101 Definition The rank correlation test (or Spearman’s rank correlation test) is a non-parametric test that uses ranks of sample data consisting of matched pairs. It is used to test for an association between two variables.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 102 1.The nonparametric method of rank correlation can be used in a wider variety of circumstances than the parametric method of linear correlation. With rank correlation, we can analyze paired data that are ranks or can be converted to ranks. 2.Rank correlation can be used to detect some (not all) relationships that are not linear. Advantages Rank correlation has these advantages over the parametric methods discussed in Chapter 10:

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc.

Note: Unlike the parametric methods of Section 10-2, there is no requirement that the sample pairs of data have a bivariate normal distribution. There is no requirement of a normal distribution for any population.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 109 Disadvantages A disadvantage of rank correlation is its efficiency rating of 0.91, as described in Section 13-1. This efficiency rating shows that with all other circumstances being equal, the nonparametric approach of rank correlation requires 100 pairs of sample data to achieve the same results as only 91 pairs of sample observations analyzed through parametric methods, assuming that the stricter requirements of the parametric approach are met.

All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 112 Example: Table 13-1 lists overall quality scores and selectivity rankings of a sample of national universities (based on data from U.S. News and World Report). Find the value of the rank correlation coefficient and use it to determine whether there is a correlation between the overall quality scores and the selectivity rankings. Use a 0.05 significance level. Based on the result, does it appear that national universities with higher overall quality scores are more difficult to get into?

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 113 Example: Requirement is satisfied: paired data are a simple random sample The selectivity data consist of ranks that are not normally distributed. So, we use the rank correlation coefficient to test for a relationship between overall quality score and selectivity rank. The null and alternative hypotheses are as follows: H 0 :  s = 0 H 1 :  s  0

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 115 Example: From Table A-9, using  = 0.05 and n = 8, the critical values are  0.738. Because the test statistic of r s = –0.857 is not between the critical values of –0.738 and 0.738, we reject the null hypothesis. There is sufficient evidence to support a claim of a correlation between overall quality score and selectivity ranking. It appears that Universities with higher quality scores are more selective and are more difficult to get into.

Table 13-8 lists randomly selected times (in hr) after the experiment is begun, and the number of bacteria present. Use a 0.05 significance level to test the claim that there is a correlation between time and population size. Example: Detecting a Nonlinear Pattern

The original values are not ranks, so we convert them to ranks and enter the results in Table 13-9.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 118 There are no ties among ranks of either list. Example: Detecting a Nonlinear Pattern

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 119 Example: Detecting a Nonlinear Pattern Since n = 10 is less than 30, use Table A-9 Critical values are ± 0.648 The test statistic r s = 1 is not between –0.648 and 0.648, so we reject the null hypothesis of  s = 0 (no correlation). There is sufficient evidence to conclude there is a correlation between time and population size.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 120 Example: Detecting a Nonlinear Pattern If this example is done using the methods of Section 10-2, the linear correlation coefficient is r = 0.0621 and critical values of –0.632 and 0.632. This leads to the conclusion that there is not enough evidence to support the claim of a significant linear correlation, whereas the nonlinear test found that there was enough evidence. The Minitab scatter diagram shows that there is a non-linear relationship that the parametric method would not have detected.

All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 121 Recap In this section we have discussed: Rank correlation which is the non- parametric equivalent of testing for correlation described in Chapter 10. It uses ranks of matched pairs to test for association. Sometimes rank correlation can detect non-linear correlation that the parametric test will not recognize.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 123 Key Concept This section introduces the runs test for randomness, which can be used to determine whether the sample data in a sequence are in a random order. This test is based on sample data that have two characteristics, and it analyzes runs of those characteristics to determine whether the runs appear to result from some random process, or whether the runs suggest that the order of the data is not random.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 124 Definition A run is a sequence of data having the same characteristic; the sequence is preceded and followed by data with a different characteristic or by no data at all. The runs test uses the number of runs in a sequence of sample data to test for randomness in the order of the data.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 125 Fundamental Principles of the Run Test Reject randomness if the number of runs is very low or very high. Example: The sequence of genders FFFFFMMMMM is not random because it has only 2 runs, so the number of runs is very low. Example: The sequence of genders FMFMFMFMFM is not random because there are 10 runs, which is very high. It is important to note that the runs test for randomness is based on the order in which the data occur; it is not based on the frequency of the data.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 126 Caution The runs test for randomness is based on the order in which the data occur; it is not based on the frequency of the data. For example, a sequence of 3 men and 20 women might appear to be random, but the issue of whether 3 men and 20 women constitute a biased sample (with disproportionately more women) is not addressed by the runs test.

Copyright © 2010, 2007, 2004 Pearson Education, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 13.1 - 129 Objective Apply the runs test for randomness to a sequence of sample data to test for randomness in the order of the data. Use the following null and alternative hypotheses. H 0 :The data are in a random sequence. H 1 :The data are in a sequence that is not random.
