Hi, I am writing to share a doubt I have. I have to compare two datasets with 352 entries. One of them has gaussian (normal) distribution and the other an unknown distribution. When I look at both histograms distributions, they are superimposed, and visually there is no statistical...
2. ### High correlation but different median scores. How can this be possible?

I am writing a research paper. We asked the same patients to fill out a form at two different times. Data is non-normal. I used Spearman's correlation, which gave me a moderate correlation between the two scores. I also used weighted kappa and this too gave me a moderate agreement between both...
3. ### Wilcoxon (SL) Regression - Confidence Intervals on Parameter Estimators?

Does anyone know of a method to create confidence intervals on the SLR parameter estimates of a Wilcoxon Regression model?
4. ### Which tests to use in these examples? Wilcoxon etc.

I'm pretty clueless, but would appreciate any help very much. I have: Group 1: went from nothing, to receiving surgery 1, and then later on received surgery 2. -> A (before), B (after first surgery), C (after second surgery) Group 2: went from nothing to receiving surgery 1 -> A...

6. ### [SPSS - wilcoxon/paired t test] - not normally distributed data

Hello! I ran an analysis of my data of research into a repeated measures design and found the difference of both conditions to be not normally distributed. When exlcuding data to make it normally distributed and thus use parametric tests, can we only exclude data that exceeds the limit of...
7. ### non parametric multiple pairwise comparisons - which correction is allowed?

Hello all, I have a data set from plant experiments with only 4 replicates. data are numbers of mites after different treatments. Because the datasets are small they are not normally distributed, so I use non parametric tests: Wilcoxon. First I did a pairwise comparison, without corrections...
8. ### Friedman ANOVA significant but post hoc tests not

Hi, Would be very grateful if anyone could shed some light onto my stats. I have 3 different methods which i am testing on the same 4 users. My data is paired and normally distributed. My sample size is very small so I am using a Friedman's ANOVA (non-parametric test) to test for any...
9. ### Wilcoxon rank sum test with binary data

Hello Everybody, Can the Wilcoxon rank sum test be used when the variable of interest is binary? For example, say I have a control group and a treatment group, and I am interested in seeing whether the treatment group goes to college more than the control group. The variable "college" takes...
