**CD-ROM Chapter 15**Introduction to Nonparametric Statistics**Chapter 15 - Chapter Outcomes**After studying the material in this chapter, you should be able to: Recognize when and how to use the runs test and testing for randomness. Know when and how to perform a Mann-Whitney U test. Recognize the situations for which the Wilcoxon signed rank test applies and be able to use it in a decision-making context. Perform nonparametric analysis of variance using the Kruskal-Wallis one-way ANOVA.**Nonparametric Statistics**Nonparametric statistical procedures are those statistical methods that do not concern themselves with population distributions and/or parameters.**The Runs Test**The runs test is a statistical procedure used to determine whether the pattern of occurrences of two types of observations is determined by a random process.**The Runs Test**A run is a succession of occurrences of a certain type preceded and followed by occurrences of the alternate type or by no occurrences at all.**The Runs Test(Small Sample Example)**H0: Computer-generated numbers are random between 0.0 and 1.0. HA: Computer-generated numbers are not random . --- + - ++ -- ++ --- ++ -- ++ Runs: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 There are r = 10 runs From runs table (Appendix K) with n1 = 9 and n2 = 11, the critical value of r is 6**The Runs Test(Small Sample Example)**Test Statistic: r = 10 runs Critical Values from Runs Table: Possible Runs: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 Reject H0 Reject H0 Do not reject H0 Decision: Since r = 10, we do not reject the null hypothesis.**Large Sample Runs Test**MEAN AND STANDARD DEVIATION FOR r where: n1 = Number of occurrences of first type n2 = Number of occurrences of second type**Large Sample Runs Test**TEST STATISTIC FOR LARGE SAMPLE RUNS TEST**Large Sample Runs Test(Example 15-2)**Table 15-2 OOOUOOUOUUOOUUOOOOUUOUUOOO UUUOOOOUUOOUUUOUUOOUUUUU OOOUOUUOOOUOOOOUUUOUUOOOU OOUUOUOOUUUOUUOOOOUUUOOO n1 = 53 “O’s” n2 = 47 “U’s” r = 45 runs**Large Sample Runs Test (Example 15-2)**H0: Yogurt fill amounts are randomly distributed above and below 24-ounce level.
