bws_test {BWStest} | R Documentation |
Perform the Baumgartner-Weiss-Schindler hypothesis test.
bws_test(x, y, method = c("default", "BWS", "Neuhauser", "B1", "B2", "B3", "B4", "B5"), alternative = c("two.sided", "greater", "less"))
x |
a vector of the first sample. |
y |
a vector of the first sample. |
method |
a character string specifying the test statistic to use. should be one of the following:
Only Neuhauser's test supports one-sided alternatives. |
alternative |
a character string specifying the alternative hypothesis,
must be one of “two.sided” (default), “greater” or
“less”. You can specify just the initial letter.
“greater” corresponds to testing whether the survival function

Object of class htest
, a list of the test statistic,
the p-value, and the method
noted.
The code will happily compute Murakami's B_3 through B_5 for large sample sizes, even though nominal coverage is not achieved. A warning will be thrown. User assumes all risk relying on results from this function.
