Re: Testing for difference between ranked and weighted data
Re my previous post, I've now satisfied myself, via further reading and checking on various tests, that the Mann-Whitney U test is appropriate for analysing the ranking of data between my two sample groups, and have performed the test accordingly. However, Mann - Whitney does not seem able to test for significant difference based upon the weighting of the my data.
For example: an extract of my data is as follows:
Preferred visit method Group A Group B
With a club 44.4% 5.1%
As a commercial guide 22.2% 54.2%
With friends/family 33.3% 25.4%
As a commercial client 0.0% 15.3%
Alone 0.0% 0.0%
Other 0.0% 0.0%
Is there a test which actually compares relative weighting of responses and not merely response rank?
