Analysis of cluster-correlated data

Part of the Lecture Notes in Statistics book series (LNS, volume 199)


In this chapter it is shown how the spatial sign and rank methods can be extended to cluster-correlated data. Tests and estimates for the one-sample location problemwith a general score function are given in detail. Then two-sampleweighted spatial rank tests are considered.
