Paired samples robust t-tests.

Description

The function yuend performs Yuen's test on trimmed means for dependent samples. Dqcomhd compares the quantiles of the marginal distributions associated with two dependent groups via hd estimator. Tied values are allowed.

Usage

1
2
yuend(x, y, tr = 0.2)
Dqcomhd(x, y, q = c(1:9)/10, nboot = 1000, na.rm = TRUE)

Arguments

x

an numeric vector of data values (e.g. for time 1).

y

an numeric vector of data values (e.g. for time 2).

tr

trim level for the means.

q

quantiles to be compared.

nboot

number of bootstrap samples.

na.rm

whether missing values should be removed.

Details

The test statistic is a paired samples generalization of Yuen's independent samples t-test on trimmed means.

yuend returns an object of class "yuen" containing:

test

value of the test statistic (t-statistic)

p.value

p-value

conf.int

confidence interval

df

degress of freedom

diff
