Copyright Â© Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. A number of nonparametric tests are compared empirically for a randomized block layout. We assess tests appropriate for when the data are not consistent with normality or when outliers invalidate traditional analysis of variance (ANOVA) tests. The objective is to assess, within this setting, tests that use ranks within blocks, the rank transform procedure that ranks the complete sample and continuous analogs of the CochranMantelHaenszel tests. The usual linear model is assumed, and our primary foci are tests of equality of means and component tests that assess linear and quadratic trends in the means. These tests include the traditional Page and Friedman tests. We conclude that the rank transform tests have competitive power and warrant greater use than is currently apparent.

Â© 2016 Taylor & Francis Data consisting of ranks within blocks are considered for randomized block designs when there are missing values. Tied ranks are possible. Such data can be analysed using the SkillingsÂ¿Mack test. Here we suggest a new approach based on carrying out an ANOVA on the ranks using the general linear model platform available in many statistical packages. Such a platform allows an ANOVA to be calculated when there are missing values. Indicative sizes and powers show the ANOVA approach performs better than the SkillingsÂ¿Mack test.

Â© 2015 Australian Statistical Publishing Association Inc. For multifactor experimental designs in which the levels of at least one of the factors are ordered we show how to construct components that provide a deep nonparametric scrutiny of the data. The components assess generalised correlations and the resulting tests include and extend the Page and umbrella tests. Application of the tests described is straightforward. Orthonormal polynomials on the ANOVA responses and the factors are required and the formulae needed are given subsequently. These depend on the moments of the responses and of each factor and are easily calculated. Products of at least two of these orthonormal polynomials are then used as inputs into standard ANOVA routines. For example, using the first order orthonormal polynomial on factor A and the second order orthonormal polynomial on the ANOVA response will assess if, with increasing levels of factor A there is an umbrella response with either an increase and then a decrease or a decrease and then an increase.

Â© Grace Scientific Publishing, LLC. Data consisting of ranks within blocks are considered for randomized complete block layouts where treatment effects are expected to be ordered. Ranks with and without ties are considered, as well as missing values. A small indicative test size study indicates both a new test and the Page test, modified by Thas et al. (2012) to easily permit ties, perform well. An advantage of the new test is that it can be easily applied to data with missing values. Three real examples are given. One of these illustrates a quadratic trend test. Comparisons between the new test and the Alvo and Cabilio (1995) extended Page test for missing values are given.

Â© SpringerVerlag Berlin Heidelberg 2015. Model based clustering and classification are often based on a finite mixture distribution. The most popular choice for the mixture component distribution is the Gaussian distribution (Fraley and Raftery, J Stat Softw 18(6):1Â¿13, 2007).Many tests, for example those based on goodness of fit measures, focus on detecting the order of the mixture. However what is often neglected are diagnostic tests to confirm the distributional assumptions. This may lead to the cluster analysis having invalid conclusions. Smooth tests (Rayner et al., Smooth tests of goodness of fit: using R, 2nd edn. Wiley, Singapore, 2009) can be used to test the distributional assumptions against the socalled general smooth alternatives in the sense of Neyman (Skandinavisk Aktuarietidskr 20:150Â¿99, 1937). To test for a mixture distribution we present smooth tests that have the additional advantage that they permit the testing of subhypotheses using components. These test statistics are asymptotically chisquared distributed. Results of the simulation study show that bootstrapping needs to be applied for small to medium sample sizes to maintain the P(type I error) at the nominal level and that the proposed tests have high power against various alternatives. Lastly the tests are illustrated on a data set on the average amount of precipitation in inches for each of 70 United States and Puerto Rico cities (Mcneil, Interactive data analysis. Wiley, New York, 1977).

CochranMantelHaenszel (CMH) test statistics can be used to compare products rated on JAR 'just about right' scales and for similar categorical data. In this note we consider the case of paired or related data. The simplified statistics we give allow 'by hand' calculation when the data set is small. We also give an R package for larger data sets or for when the user is not interested in 'by hand' calculation. Â© 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

In this fully revised and expanded edition of Smooth Tests of Goodness of Fit, the latest powerful techniques for assessing statistical and probabilistic models using this proven class of procedures are presented in a practical and easily accessible manner. Emphasis is placed on modern developments such as datadriven tests, diagnostic properties, and model selection techniques. Applicable to most statistical distributions, the methodology described in this book is optimal for deriving tests of fit for new distributions and complex probabilistic models, and is a standard against which new procedures should be compared. New features of the second edition include: Expansion of the methodology to cover virtually any statistical distribution, including exponential families. Discussion and application of datadriven smooth tests. Techniques for the selection of the best model for the data, with a guide to acceptable alternatives. Numerous new, revised, and expanded examples, generated using R code. Smooth Tests of Goodness of Fit is an invaluable resource for all methodological researchers as well as graduate students undertaking goodnessoffit, statistical, and probabilistic model assessment courses. Practitioners wishing to make an informed choice of goodnessoffit test will also find this book an indispensible guide. Reviews of the first edition: "This book gives a very readable account of the smooth tests of goodness of fit. The book can be read by scientists having only an introductory knowledge of statistics. It contains a fairly extensive list of references; research will find it helpful for the further development of smooth tests." T.K. Chandra, Zentralblatt fÃ¼r Mathematik und ihre Grenzgebiete, Band 73, 1/92' "An excellent job of showing how smooth tests (a class of goodness of fit tests) are generally and easily applicable in assessing the validity of models involving statistical distributions....Highly recommended for undergraduate and graduate libraries." Choice. "The book can be read by scientists having only an introductory knowledge of statistics. It contains a fairly extensive list of references; researchers will find it helpful for the further development of smooth tests."Mathematical Reviews. "Very rich in examples . . . Should find its way to the desks of many statisticians." Technometrics. Â© 2009 John Wiley & Sons (Asia) Pte Ltd.
