MRPP is an effective procedure for analyzing data in a wide variety of contexts. The ability to vary weighting and commensuration, utilize a variety of distance functions, include an excess group, measure agreement, accommodate extreme values, and incorporate both univariate and multivariate data make MRPP a powerful and versatile analysis technique. In this chapter, additional applications of MRPP are described. Included are applications of MRPP to autoregressive patterns, two-way contingency tables, agreement measures, cyclic data, generalized runs tests, and rank-order data.
