Conover's All-Pairs Rank Comparison Test

Description

Performs Conover's non-parametric all-pairs comparison test for Kruskal-type ranked data.

Usage

kwAllPairsConoverTest(x, ...)

## Default S3 method:
kwAllPairsConoverTest(
x,
g,
...
)

## S3 method for class 'formula'
kwAllPairsConoverTest(
formula,
data,
subset,
na.action,
...
)


Arguments

 x a numeric vector of data values, or a list of numeric data vectors. ... further arguments to be passed to or from methods. g a vector or factor object giving the group for the corresponding elements of "x". Ignored with a warning if "x" is a list. p.adjust.method method for adjusting p values (see p.adjust). formula a formula of the form response ~ group where response gives the data values and group a vector or factor of the corresponding groups. data an optional matrix or data frame (or similar: see model.frame) containing the variables in the formula formula. By default the variables are taken from environment(formula). subset an optional vector specifying a subset of observations to be used. na.action a function which indicates what should happen when the data contain NAs. Defaults to getOption("na.action").

Details

For all-pairs comparisons in an one-factorial layout with non-normally distributed residuals Conover's non-parametric test can be performed. A total of m = k(k-1)/2 hypotheses can be tested. The null hypothesis H_{ij}: \mu_i(x) = \mu_j(x) is tested in the two-tailed test against the alternative A_{ij}: \mu_i(x) \ne \mu_j(x), ~~ i \ne j.

If p.adjust.method == "single-step" the p-values are computed from the studentized range distribution. Otherwise, the p-values are computed from the t-distribution using any of the p-adjustment methods as included in p.adjust.

Value

A list with class "PMCMR" containing the following components:

method

a character string indicating what type of test was performed.

data.name

a character string giving the name(s) of the data.

statistic

lower-triangle matrix of the estimated quantiles of the pairwise test statistics.

p.value

lower-triangle matrix of the p-values for the pairwise tests.

alternative

a character string describing the alternative hypothesis.

a character string describing the method for p-value adjustment.

model

a data frame of the input data.

dist

a string that denotes the test distribution.
