Conditional and Unconditional Tests for Comparing Several Poisson Means 3 2 The Tests
In this article, we consider the problem of testing equality of several Poisson means. Two tests, one based on the exact conditional distribution of the sample counts and another based on the
A comparative study of tests for the difference of two Poisson means
Testing the Ratio of Two Poisson Rates
Four different general approaches for testing the ratio of two Poisson rates are compared and some recommendations favoring the likelihood ratio and certain asymptotic tests are based on these simulation results.
On a Test of the Difference between Two Binomial Proportions
The problem of testing for the equality of the proportions of two independent binomial populations is covered in the literature by a very extensive research. The most popular procedures are Fisher's
Parametric bootstrap and approximate tests for two Poisson variates
The parametric bootstrap tests and the asymptotic or approximate tests for detecting difference of two Poisson means are compared. The test statistics used are the Wald statistics with and without
Exact unconditional testing procedures for comparing two independent Poisson rates
We consider seven exact unconditional testing procedures for comparing adjusted incidence rates between two groups from a Poisson process. Exact tests are always preferable due to the guarantee of

It is shown how the construction of a Poisson-Boschloo type test extends to the case that interest is in establishing equivalence in the strict, two-sided sense rather than noninferiority, and compares the resulting test procedure in terms of power with the exact randomized UMPU test.
A revisit to testing the equality of several Poisson parameters
This paper has proposed a few new test procedures based on two broad adjustments, namely (i) using different 'metrics' which measure deviation of the model parameters from the null hypothesis; and (ii) using shrinkage estimators in the aforementioned 'Metrics'.


Experiment Size and Power Comparisons for Two‐Sample Poisson Tests
SUMMARY The uniformly most powerful test and an approximate test of equality of the failure intensities of two Poisson processes are studied. An approximately normally distributed test statistic is
Exact Properties of Some Exact Test Statistics for Comparing Two Binomial Proportions
Abstract Using exact unconditional distributions, we evaluated the size and power of four exact test procedures and three versions of the χ2 statistic for the two-sample binomial problem in

Confidence Intervals for the Ratio of Two Poisson Means and Poisson Predictor Intervals
Easy-to-use charts are presented for confidence intervals for the ratio of two Poisson mean occurrence rates and for predictor intervals for the future value of a Poisson random variable, given a
