# SOME RAPID APPROXIMATE STATISTICAL PROCEDURES

@article{Wilcoxon1950SOMERA, title={SOME RAPID APPROXIMATE STATISTICAL PROCEDURES}, author={Frank. Wilcoxon}, journal={Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences}, year={1950}, volume={52} }

The last twenty years have seen a great increase in the use of statistical methods in various branches of science and technology. One of the obstacles to the more widespread use of these methods is the complex and laborious nature of the computations which are often required in order to make use of the customary textbook methods. It is not always realized that rapid approximate methods are available for many situations.4 Such approximate methods, however, sacrifice some of the information… Expand

Non-Parametric Methods in Psychological Research

- Psychology
- 1959

In recent years statistical techniques have been developed which do not rely on parameters of a known distribution in making statistical inferences. These have been called non-parametric or… Expand

Some aspects of the statistical analysis of the 'mixed model'.

- Computer Science, Medicine

This paper deals with the statistical analysis (both parametric and non-parametric) of 'mixed model' experiments and illustrated in detail in two numerical examples the relative performances of the different test criteria for a situation in which the null hypothesis is essentially true. Expand

The use of non-parametric methods in the statistical analysis of a complex split plot experiment.

- Mathematics, Medicine

- 1970

It is shown that non-parametric methods provide realistic alternatives in analyzing data arising from a complex experimental design and not necessarily satisfying the traditional assumptions of analysis of variance. Expand

Some Aspects of Nonparametric Inference

- Computer Science
- 1972

This paper considers two standard elementary "normal theory" procedures based on the assumption that the underlying distribution functions are normal and asks how far they are justified in applying in situations where the normality does not exist. Expand

SUMMARY This paper deals with the statistical analysis (both parametric and non-parametric) of 'mixed model' experiments. The general structure of such experiments involves n randomly chosen subjects… Expand

Rapid Statistical Techniques for Operational Research Workers

- Computer Science
- 1958

Quick tests for the population mean, the comparison of two population means, and for the existence of trends, association and other non-randomness are described and usually err on the conservative side. Expand

On permutation location–scale tests

- Computer Science

The paper considers various forms of test statistics, and presents a simulation study carried out to determine the size and power of the tests under normality, and a nonparametric, complex procedure used to assess the overall ASL value by applying the permutation principle. Expand

It is shown that when dosage is inferred from the observed mortality on the assumption that susceptibility is distributed normally, such inferred dosages, in terms of units called probits, give straight lines when plotted against the logarithm of their corresponding observed dosages. Expand

Individual Comparisons by Ranking Methods
