Closed Multiple Testing Procedures and PROC MULTTEST

Abstract

Multiple comparisons and multiple testing problems arise frequently in statistical data analysis, and it is important to address them appropriately. Closed testing methods are among the most powerful multiple inference methods available, and are therefore gaining rapidly in popularity. The purpose of this article is to explain what a closed testing procedure is, why such methods are desirable, and explicitly identify situations for which the MULTTEST procedure provides a closed testing procedure.
