Robust Statistics: A Survey and Some Prescriptions
Wainer, Howard
Journal of Educational Statistics, 1, 4, 285-312, Win 76
Estimators which are optimal under assumptions of normality are shown to be vulnerable to the effects of outliers. A survey of robust alternatives is presented. Included are alternatives to the mean, standard deviation, product-moment correlation, t-test, analysis of variance, multivariate techniques, and schemes for outlier detection. (Author/JKS)
