# A Large-Sample Test of the Hypothesis that one of two Random Variables is Stochastically Larger than the Other

@article{Marshall1951ALT, title={A Large-Sample Test of the Hypothesis that one of two Random Variables is Stochastically Larger than the Other}, author={A. W. Marshall}, journal={Journal of the American Statistical Association}, year={1951}, volume={46}, pages={366-374} }

T HIS paper presents a large-sample, non-parametric test using grouped data. It applies when x and y are random variables with continuous cumulative distribution functions (c.d.f.'s) F(x) and G(y). A statistic S based upon the sum of the differences, at selected points, of the two sample c.d.f.'s, Fm*(x) and GQn*(y), is proposed for testing the hypothesis F(a) G(a) for every a against alternative hypotheses in which one of two variables is stochastically larger than the other. A variable x is…

It was found that the distribution of headways in platoons was independent of speed at a given site, and members of platoon were shown to follow too closely in terms of the Highway Code advice; this close following behaviour was shown to be relatively greater at higher speeds.
