1 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 1 PREVIOUSLY parametric statistics in estimation and hypothesis testing... construction of confidence intervals computing of p-values classical significance testing depend on assumptions about the underlying distribution of the data (or on the Central Limit Theorem)

2 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 2 nonparametric statistics no assumptions about underlying distribution of data used when... assumptions about underlying distributions are not met (data not normally distributed) sample sizes are small (n#30, cannot rely on Central Limit Theorem)

3 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 3 advantages can be used with non-normally distributed data can be used with discrete data (nominal, ordinal) simpler computations (questionable since it is rare to have to do any calculations without a program that is designed for statistical methods, e.g. Statcrunch, Statdisk, SAS) effect of outlier(s) less than when using a parametric method since actual data values are not used in computation

4 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 4 disadvantages 'waste' information (e.g. if evaluating change in some quantity within subjects over time, the sign test would only classify change as -/0/+ while a paired t-test would use the actual measured change) not as 'efficient' (most texts use not as 'powerful') - there is more of a chance of not rejecting a false null hypothesis

5 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 5 THREE TESTS sign test Wilcoxon Signed-Ranks Test for Matched Pairs (equivalent to a paired t-test) Wilcoxon Rank-Sum Test or Two Independent Samples (equivalent to two-sample t-test) there are MANY more nonparametric tests

6 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 6 SIGN TEST used to test claims involving matched pairs of data claims involving nominal data claims about the median of a single population requirements same issues as to sampling as before (random, representative) Note: No assumptions about the underlying distribution of the data. n (total of +/- results) # 25 table, n > 25 normal approximation

7 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 7 Example from Rosner people are participants in a study to test whether two treatments differ in their ability to prevent redness resulting from exposure to sunlight... each person has a different treatment applied to their right and left arms... results... nominal data (and matched pairs) treatment A arm not as red as treatment B arm (-) 18 treatment B arm not as red as treatment A arm (+) 5 no difference as with McNemar's Test, the only data used are from the discordant results (the 5 with no difference are not used in computation of the test statistic)

8 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 8 claim... there is no difference between treatments null hypothesis... H0: p = 05. H1: p 05. test statistic... z = ( x ) ( n/ 2) n / 2 = ( ) ( 40 / 2) 40 / 2 = 15. = where... x=number of times lest frequent sign occurs, and n=total + and - signs or... z = ( n+ ) ( n ) = n 40 3 = = critical value... with "=0.05, two-tail test, z=1.96

9 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 9 P-value... from Statcrunch, p=0.3176, P-value= conclusion... fail to reject the null hypothesis no evidence that the two treatments differ alternative... fixed number of trials trials are independent each trial has only two possible outcomes probabilities remain constant for each trials binomial... n=40,k=18,p(k#18)=0.3179,p-value= n=40,k=22,p(k\$22)=0.3179,p-value= when n#25... use values from table A-2, values are 'n' and 'k' from binomial tables with p=0.50

10 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 10 using Statcrunch...

11 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 11 Example from Triola measurements of body temperature... test to see if the body temperatures come from a population with a median body temperature of (-) 97.5(-) (-) 98.0(-) 99.0(+) 98.5(-) 98.1(-) 98.4(-) 97.9(-) 97.9(-) 97.7(-) what is normal body temperature...

12 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 12 claim... median temperature of population is 98.6 null hypothesis... H : median = H : median test statistic... z = ( n+ ) ( n ) = n 11 8 = = however... cannot use test statistic with n=11 P-value... from binomial distribution with n=11, p=0.50, probability of k#1 = , P-value=0.021 conclusion... reject the null hypothesis median not equal to 1.96

13 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 13 WILCOXON SIGNED-RANKS TEST used to test claims involving matched pairs of data (do differences come from a population with a median value of zero) claims about the median of a single population requirements same issues as to sampling as before (random, representative) Note: No assumptions about the underlying distribution of the data. n (total of +/- results) # 30 table, n > 30 normal approximation

14 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 14 Example from Rosner people are participants in a study to test whether two treatments differ in their ability to prevent redness resulting from exposure to sunlight... each person has a different treatment applied to their right and left arms... previously... results... nominal data (and matched pairs) treatment A arm not as red as treatment B arm (-) 18 treatment B arm not as red as treatment A arm (+) 5 no difference

15 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 15 new results measured in difference in degree of redness treatment A arm not as red as treatment B arm (n=22) + treatment B arm not as red as treatment A arm (n=18) 0 treatment A and B not different (n=5, not shown in table) as with the Sign Test, the only data used are from the discordant results (the 5 with no difference are not used in computation of the test statistic)

16 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 16 distribution of actual differences shows much more information than merely comparing the number of positive and negative values...

17 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 17 arrange results in a table... rank differences from lowest to highest without regard to the sign of the difference... 1(-) 1(-) 1(-) 1(-) (-) 2(-) 2(-) 2(-) (-) 3(-) 3(-) 3(-) 3(-) 3 3 4(-) 5(-) 5(-) 6(-) 6(-) 7(-) 7(-) 7(-) 8(-) assign ranks to each value... ties are assigned average rank (-) 7.5(-) 7.5(-) 7.5(-) (-) 19.5(-) 19.5(-) 19.5(-) (-) 28(-) 28(-) 28(-) 28(-) (-) 33.5(-) 33.5(-) 35.5(-) 35.5(-) 38(-) 38(-) 38(-) 40(-)

18 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 18 sum the ranks assigned to the positive and negative values... positive (10) (6) + 28(2) = 248 negative (4) (4) + 28(5) + 32(1) (2) (2) + 38(3) + 40(1) = 572 (ranks should sum to n(n+1)/2 = 40(41)/2 = 820, if no difference, the positive and negative ranks should each sum to 410 and the test is trying to find if the sums of 248 and 572 are different enough from 410 to be a rare event) T = smaller of +/- ranks = 248 test statistic... z = T nn ( + 1) 4 nn ( + 1)( 2n+ 1) 24 = 40( 41) = 162 = ( 41)( 81)

19 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 19 critical value... from normal table, "=0.5, two-tail, 1.96 P-value... from normal table, p=0.0146, P-value=0.29 conclusion... reject the null hypothesis there is a difference in the effect of treatments A and B (a different conclusion than was found with the sign test - sign test is less powerful so one is more likely to accept an incorrect null hypothesis)

20 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 20 using Statcrunch...

21 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 21 alternative... imagine n (number of +/-) = 5 think of five chips numbered 1 through 5 on one side, 0 on the other (0 represents a negative value, 1 through 5 is a positive rank)... toss the five chips in the air possible ways that the five chips can land (2 5 ) sample space (sum of positive ranks)... sum=0 0,0,0,0,0 p=1/32 sum=1 1,0,0,0,0 p=1/32 sum=2 0,2,0,0,0 p=1/32 sum=3 0,0,3,0,0 1,2,0,0,0 p=2/32 sum=4 0,0,0,4,0 1,0,3,0,0 p=2/32 sum=5 0,0,0,0,5 p=1/32 only 'rare event' is sum=1 (p=2/32=.0625, 1-tail) same logic applies to any n (entries in table A-8)

22 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 22 Example from Triola measurements of body temperature... test to see if the body temperatures come from a population with a median body temperature of rather than use just signs (below/above median), use the actual differences from the median value of 98.6 and follow the same procedure as just used with the Rosner data (-1.0) 97.5(-1.1) 98.6 (0) 98.2(-0.4) 98.0(-0.6) 99.0(+0.4) 98.5(-0.1) 98.1(-0.5) 98.4(-0.2) 97.9(-0.7) 97.9(-0.7) 97.7(-0.9) 0.1 (-) 0.2 (-) 0.4 (-) 0.4 (+) 0.5 (-) 0.6 (-) 0.7 (-) 0.7 (-) 0.9 (-) 1.0 (-) 1.1 (-) 1(-) 2(-) 3.5(-) 3.5 5(-) 6(-) 7.5(-) 7.5(-) 9(-) 10(-) 11(-)

23 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 23 sum the ranks assigned to the positive and negative values... positive negative... 1(1) + 2(1) + 3.5(1) + 5(1) + 6(1) + 7.5(2) + 9(1) + 10(1) + 11(1) = 62.5 (ranks should sum to n(n+1)/2 = 11(12)/2 = 66, if no difference, the positive and negative ranks should each sum to 33 and the test is trying to find if the sums of 3.5 and 62.5 are different enough from 33 to be a rare event) T = smaller of +/- ranks = 3.5 test statistic... T since n#30 critical value... from table A-8 with n=11,"=0.5, two-tail, 11 conclusion... no reason to reject the null hypothesis that the median body temperature is 98.6

24 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 24 WILCOXON RANK-SUM TEST used to test claims involving independent samples (do samples come from two populations with equal medians), sometimes referred to as the Mann-Whitney U Test requirements same issues as to sampling as before (random, representative) Note: No assumptions about the underlying distribution of the data. n>10 in both samples, use normal approximation, otherwise must use table values (no table in Triola)

25 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 25 from...

26 NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS 26 Example from Rosner... A protocol of meditation therapy is administered once a day to 20 patients with anxiety. The patients are given a psychiatric exam at baseline and at a follow-up exam 2 months later. The degree of improvement is rated on a 10-point scale, with 1 indicating the most improvement and 10 the least improvement. Similarly, 26 comparably affected patients with anxiety are given standard psychotherapy and are asked to come back 2 months later for a follow-up exam.
