Wilcoxon Rank Sum Test

Recall from last week: When we test a hypothesis about the difference between two independent population means, we do so using the difference between two sample means. When the two sample variances are tested and found not to be equal
we cannot pool the sample variances thus we cannot use the t-test for independent samples. Instead, we use the Wilcoxon Rank Sum Test.

Wilcoxon Rank Sum Test

The Z test and the t test are parametric tests that is, they answer a question about the difference between populations by comparing sample statistics (e.g., X1 and X2) and making an inference to the population parameters (1 and 2). The Wilcoxon, in contrast, allows inferences about whole populations

1b. Small samples, independent groups

Wilcoxon Rank Sum Test
first, combine the two samples and rank order all the observations. smallest number has rank 1, largest number has rank N (= sum of n1 and n2). separate samples and add up the ranks for the smaller sample. (If n1 = n2, choose either one.) test statistic : rank sum T for smaller sample.
Wilcoxon

1b. Small samples, independent groups

Wilcoxon One-tailed Hypotheses H0: Prob. distributions for 2 sampled populations are identical. HA: Prob. distribution for Population A shifted to right of distribution for Population B. (Note: could be to the left, but must be one or the other, not both.)

Wilcoxon

1b. Small samples, independent groups

Wilcoxon Two-tailed Hypotheses H0: Prob. distributions for 2 sampled populations are identical. HA: Prob. distribution for Population A shifted to right or left of distribution for Population B.

1b. Small samples, independent groups

Wilcoxon Rejection region: (With Sample taken from Population A being smaller than sample for Population B) reject H0 if TA TU or TA TL

1b. Small samples, independent groups Wilcoxon for n1 10 and n2 10:

Test statistic: Z = TA n1(n1 + n2 + 1) 2 n1n2(n1 + n2 + 1) 12

Wilcoxon for n1 10 and n2 10

Rejection region: One-tailed

Z > Z

Note: use this only when n1 10 and n2 10

Example 1
These are small samples, and they are independent (random samples of Cajun and Creole dishes). Therefore, we have to begin with the test of equality of variances.

Example 1 Wilcoxon Rank Sum Test

H0: Prob. distributions for Cajun and Creole populations are identical. HA: Prob. distribution for Cajun is shifted to right of distribution for Creole. Statistical test: T

Wilcoxon

Example 1 Wilcoxon Rank Sum Test

Rejection region: Reject H0 if TCajun > 66 (or if TCreole < 39) (Note: We shall give lower heat values lower rank values)

Example 1 Wilcoxon Rank Sum Test

Calculation check: Sum of the ranks should = (n) (n+1) 2 70 + 35 = 105 = (14)(15) 2
Wilcoxon

19

Example 1 Wilcoxon Rank Sum Test

TCajun = 70 > 66 (and TCreole = 35 < 39)

Therefore, reject H0 Cajun dishes are significantly hotter than Creole dishes.
