TABLES FOR COMPARING RELATED-SAMPLE PERCENTAGES AND FOR THE MEDIAN TEST.
TATE, MERLE W.; BROWN, SARA M.
TO STUDY THE EXACT DISTRIBUTIONAL DIFFERENCES BETWEEN SMALL, RELATED-SAMPLE PERCENTAGES AND THE ACCURACY OF LARGE-SAMPLE TESTS, SOME SIX HUNDRED SAMPLING DISTRIBUTIONS WERE CONSTRUCTED BY RANDOMIZATION. EXACT PROBABILITY FIGURES IN THE .204-.005 RANGE WERE TABULATED. THE TABLE OF SIGNIFICANCE VALUES EXTENDS TO SAMPLES YIELDING MATRICES VARYING IN SIZE FROM TREE COLUMNS AND 12 ROWS TO SIX COLUMNS AND FIVE ROWS, INCLUDING ALL COMBINATIONS OF ROW TOTALS. THE TWO-SAMPLE PROBLEM WAS TREATED AS A SPECIAL CASE OF THE SIGN TEST. THE USE AND RELIABILITY OF THE Q-TEST IS DISCUSSED. THE USE AND ACCURACY OF THE MEDIAN TEST IN THE TWO-WAY CLASSIFICATION OF QUANTITATIVE DATA IS DESCRIBED. (PS)
