Distribution tests and rank transformations for single samples

  • Peter Sprent

Abstract

Chapter 2 covered test and estimation procedures for location — the median if we do not assume symmetry; either mean or median if we do. We now consider more general problems of matching data to particular distributions. Populations, whether or not they have identical locations, may differ widely in other characteristics.
