1 UCLA SA 0B Applied Statistics for Egieerig ad the Scieces Istructor: Ivo Diov, Asst. Prof. I Statistics ad Neurology eachig Assistats: Bria Ng, UCLA Statistics Uiversity of Califoria, Los Ageles, Sprig Why Use Noparametric Statistics? Parametric tests are based upo assumptios that may iclude the followig: he data have the same variace, regardless of the treatmets or coditios i the experimet. he data are ormally distributed for each of the treatmets or coditios i the experimet. What happes whe we are ot sure that these assumptios have bee satisfied? Slide Slide How Do Noparametric ests Compare with the Usual z, t, ad F ests? Studies have show that whe the usual assumptios are satisfied, oparametric tests are about 95% efficiet whe compared to their parametric equivalets. Whe ormality ad commo variace are ot satisfied, the oparametric procedures ca be much more efficiet tha their parametric equivalets. he Wilcoxo Rak Sum est Suppose we wish to test the hypothesis that two distributios have the same ceter. We select two idepedet radom samples from each populatio. Desigate each of the observatios from populatio as a A ad each of the observatios from populatio as a B. If H 0 is true, ad the two samples have bee draw from the same populatio, whe we rak the values i both samples from small to large, the A s ad B s should be radomly mixed i the rakigs. Slide 3 Slide What happes whe H 0 is true? Suppose we had 5 measuremets from populatio ad 6 measuremets from populatio. If they were draw from the same populatio, the rakigs might be like this. ABABBABABBA I this case if we summed the raks of the A measuremets ad the raks of the B measuremets, the sums would be similar. What happes if H 0 is ot true? If the observatios come from two differet populatios, perhaps with populatio lyig to the left of populatio, the rakig of the observatios might take the followig orderig. AAABABABBB I this case the sum of the raks of the B observatios would be larger tha that for the A observatios. Slide 5 Slide 6

2 How to Implemet Wilcoxo s Rak est Rak the combied sample from smallest to largest. Let represet the sum of the raks of the first sample (A s). he, defied below, is the sum of the raks that the A s would have had if the observatios were raked from large to small. ( + + ) he Wilcoxo Rak Sum est H 0 :: the two populatio distributios are the same H a a :: the two populatios are i i some way differet he test statistic is the smaller of ad. Reject H 0 if the test statistic is less tha the critical value foud i able (a). able (a) is idexed by lettig populatio be the oe associated with the smaller sample size, ad populatio as the oe associated with, the larger sample size. Slide Slide 8 he wig stroke frequecies of two species If If several of measuremets bees were are are recorded tied, for a sample of each gets from the species the average of of the ad the raks 6 from species. they would have gotte, if if they Ca were you coclude that the distributios of wig ot tied! (See x 80) strokes differ for these two species? Use α.05. Species 35 (0) 5 (9) 90 (8) 88 () H Species 0 : the are the H 80 a : a : the the two species are are i i some way differet (3.5) 69 (). he sample with the smaller sample 80 size is called sample. (3.5) 85 (6). We rak the 0 observatios from 8 () smallest to largest, show i 8 (5) paretheses i the table. Slide 9 he Bee Problem Ca you coclude that the distributios of wig strokes differ for these two species? α.05. Species Reject Species H 0.. Data Calculate provides sufficiet evidece (0) 80 (3.5) idicatig a differece i i 5 the (9) 69 () ( + + ) distributios of of wig stroke 90 frequecies. (8) 80 (3.5) ( ) () (6) () (5). he test statistic is 0.. he critical value of from able (b) for a twotailed test with α/.05 is ; H 0 is rejected if. Slide 0 Miitab Output Recall 3; 0. MaWhitey est ad CI: Species, Species Species N Media 0.50 Species N 6 Media Poit estimate for EAEA is Percet CI for EAEA is (5.99,56.0) W 3.0 est of EA EA vs EA ot EA is sigificat at 0.0 he test is sigificat at (adjusted for ties) Miitab calls the the procedure the the MaWhitey U est, equivalet to to the the Wilcoxo Rak Sum est. he test statistic is is W 3 3 ad has pvalue.0. Do Do ot reject H 0 for 0 for α.05. Slide Large Sample Approximatio: Wilcoxo Rak Sum est Whe ad are large (greater tha 0 is large eough), a ormal approximatio ca be used to approximate the critical values i able.. Calculate ad. Let mi,. he statistic z σ z distributio with µ ( + + ) ad σ has a approximate sum of the raks of sample (A s). ( + + ) Slide ). ( + + ) µ

3 Some Notes Whe should you use the Wilcoxo Rak Sum test istead of the twosample t test for idepedet samples? whe the resposes ca oly be raked ad ot quatified (e.g., ordial qualitative data) whe the F test or the Rule of humb shows a problem with equality of variaces whe a ormality plot shows a violatio of the ormality assumptio he Sig est he sig test is a fairly simple procedure that ca be used to compare two populatios whe the samples cosist of paired observatios. It ca be used whe the assumptios required for the paireddifferece test are ot valid or whe the resposes ca oly be raked as oe better tha the other, but caot be quatified. Slide 3 Slide he Sig est he Sig est For each pair, measure whether the first respose say, A exceeds the secod respose say, B. he test statistic is is x, the umber of times that A exceeds B i the pairs of observatios. Oly pairs without ties are icluded i the test. Critical values for the rejectio regio or exact pvalues ca be foud usig the cumulative biomial distributio (SOCR resource olie). Slide 5 H 0 : the two populatios are idetical versus H a : oe or twotailed alterative is is equivalet to H 0 : p P(A exceeds B).5 versus H a : p (, <, or >).5 est statistic: x umber of plus sigs Rejectio regio, pvalues from Bisize, p). Slide 6 he Gourmet Chefs wo gourmet chefs each tasted ad rated eight differet meals from to 0. Does it appear that oe of the chefs teds to give higher ratigs tha the other? Use α.0. Meal Chef A Chef B Sig H 0 : 0 : the the ratig distributios are are the the same (p (p.5).5) H a : a : the the ratigs are are differet (p (p.5).5) Slide Meal Chef A Chef B Sig + + pvalue.5 0 is too large to pvalue.5 is too large to reject H 0. H 0 : 0 : p.5 0. here is is isufficiet.5 evidece to to idicate that oe H a : a : p.5.5 with (omit chef the the tied pair) teds to to rate oe meal est Statistic: x umber of of higher plus sigs tha the the other. Use able with ad p pvalue P(observe x or or somethig equally as as ulikely) P(x ) ) + P(x 5) 5) (.).5 k P(x k) Slide 8

Calculate x. he statistic z distributio. umber of plus sigs. x.5 z.5 has a approximate You record the umber of accidets per day at a large maufacturig plat for both the day ad eveig shifts for 00 days. You fid that the umber of accidets per day for the eveig shift x E exceeded the For correspodig a two tailed umber test, we we of reject accidets H 00 i the day shift x D o 63 of the if if 00 z z > days..96 (5% Do these level). results provide sufficiet evidece to idicate H that 0 is more accidets ted to occur 0 is rejected. here is is evidece o oe shift tha o the other? of of a differece betwee the the day ad H 0 : 0 : the the distributios (# (# of of accidets) ight shifts. are are the the same (p (p.5).5) H a : a : the the distributios are are differet (p (p.5).5) est statistic: z x (00) Slide 9 Slide 0 Which test should you use? Which test should you use? We compare statistical tests usig Defiitio: Power β P(reject H 0 whe H a is true) he power of the test is the probability of rejectig the ull hypothesis whe it is false ad some specified alterative is true. he power is the probability that the test will do what it was desiged to do that is, detect a departure from the ull hypothesis whe a departure exists. If all parametric assumptios have bee met, the parametric test will be the most powerful. If ot, a oparametric test may be more powerful. If you ca reject H 0 with a less powerful oparametric test, you will ot have to worry about parametric assumptios. If ot, you might try more powerful oparametric test or icreasig the sample size to gai more power Slide Slide he Wilcoxo SigedRak est differet form Wilcoxo Rak Sum est he Wilcoxo SigedRak est is a more powerful oparametric procedure that ca be used to compare two populatios whe the samples cosist of paired observatios. It uses the raks of the differeces, d x x that we used i the paireddifferece test. Slide 3 he Wilcoxo SigedRak est differet form Wilcoxo Rak Sum est For each pair, calculate the differece d x x x..

If If either + or or is is uusually large, this provides evidece agaist the ull hypothesis. Slide

Use a righttailed rejectio regio or pvalue based o the Chisquare distributio. Four groups of studets were radomly assiged to be taught with four differet techiques, ad their achievemet test scores were recorded. Are the distributios of test scores the same, or do they differ i locatio?
