Multiple testing of partial conjunction null hypotheses with conditional $p$-values based on combination test statistics

  title={Multiple testing of partial conjunction null hypotheses with conditional \$p\$-values based on combination test statistics},
  author={Thorsten Dickhaus and Ruth Heller and Anh-Tuan Hoang},
The partial conjunction null hypothesis is tested in order to discover a signal that is present in multiple studies. We propose methods for multiple testing of partial conjunction null hypotheses which make use of conditional p-values based on combination test statistics. Specific examples comprise the Fisher combination function and the Stouffer combination function. The conditional validity of the corresponding p-values is proved for certain classes of one-parametric statistical models…

Testing partial conjunction hypotheses under dependency, with applications to meta-analysis
In many statistical problems the hypotheses are naturally divided into groups, and the investigators are interested to perform grouplevel inference, possibly along with inference on individual
Screening for partial conjunction hypotheses.
This work addresses the problem of testing many partial conjunction hypotheses simultaneously using the false discovery rate (FDR) approach and proves that if the FDR controlling procedure in Benjamini and Hochberg is used for this purpose the FDR is controlled under various dependency structures.
Randomized p-values for multiple testing of composite null hypotheses
Abstract We are considered with the problem of m simultaneous statistical test problems with composite null hypotheses. Usually, marginal p-values are computed under least favorable parameter
Admissibility in Partial Conjunction Testing
ABSTRACT Meta-analysis combines results from multiple studies aiming to increase power in finding their common effect. It would typically reject the null hypothesis of no effect if any one of the
Randomized p -values for multiple testing and their application in replicability analysis.
A general class of statistical models for which valid, randomized p -values can be calculated easily is introduced, and it is demonstrated that their usage typically leads to a much more accurate estimation of π 0 than the LFC-based approach.
Benjamini and Hochberg suggest that the false discovery rate may be the appropriate error rate to control in many applied multiple testing problems. A simple procedure was given there as an FDR
Combining independent p-values in replicability analysis: A comparative study
Given a family of null hypotheses H1, . . . , Hs, we are interested in the hypothesis H s that at most γ − 1 of these null hypotheses are false. Assuming that the corresponding p-values are
Plots of P-values to evaluate many tests simultaneously
SUMMARY When a large number of tests are made, possibly on the same data, it is proposed to base a simultaneous evaluation of all the tests on a plot of cumulative P-values using the observed
Assessment of the extent of corroboration of an elaborate theory of a causal hypothesis using partial conjunctions of evidence factors
An elaborate theory of predictions of a causal hypothesis consists of several falsifiable statements derived from the causal hypothesis. Statistical tests for the various pieces of the elaborate
Controlling the false discovery rate: a practical and powerful approach to multiple testing
SUMMARY The common approach to the multiplicity problem calls for controlling the familywise error rate (FWER). This approach, though, has faults, and we point out a few. A different approach to
