For m = n an equivalent statistic had been proposed and studied earlier by Wilcoxon [2]. The main aim of these studies was to develop a test of the hypothesis that X and Y have the same probability distribution: F = G. More about this test will be reported in section 2. Independently, Haldane and Smith [3] investigated the following problem. In some hereditary conditions, the probability that a member of a sibship has the condition depends partly on his birth rank. Having records of sibships in… CONTINUE READING
