# Nonparametric Simultaneous Tests for Location and Scale Testing: A Comparison of Several Methods

@article{Marozzi2013NonparametricST, title={Nonparametric Simultaneous Tests for Location and Scale Testing: A Comparison of Several Methods}, author={Marco Marozzi}, journal={Communications in Statistics - Simulation and Computation}, year={2013}, volume={42}, pages={1298 - 1317} }

The two-sample location-scale problem arises in many situations like climate dynamics, bioinformatics, medicine, and finance. To address this problem, the nonparametric approach is considered because in practice, the normal assumption is often not fulfilled or the observations are too few to rely on the central limit theorem, and moreover outliers, heavy tails and skewness may be possible. In these situations, a nonparametric test is generally more robust and powerful than a parametric test…

Non-parametric procedures and the related O'Brien-type tests are valid and yield good power in the settings investigated, and are preferable to the t-test and related procedures whose type I errors differ noticeably from nominal size for skewed and long-tailed distributions.
