CT_Hypothesis_Test {ConcordanceTest} R Documentation

Hypothesis Test for Testing whether Samples Originate from the Same Distribution

Description

This function performs the hypothesis test for testing whether samples originate from the same distribution.

Usage

CT_Hypothesis_Test(Sample_List, Num_Sim = 10000, H = 0, verbose = TRUE)


Arguments

 Sample_List List of numeric data vectors with the elements of each sample. Num_Sim The number of used simulations. The default is 10000. H 0 by default. If set to 1, the Kruskal-Wallis test is also performed and returned. verbose A logical indicating if some "progress report" of the simulations should be given. The default is TRUE.

Value

The function returns a list with the following elements:

1. results: Table with the statistics and the signification levels.

2. C_p-value: Concordance test signification level.

3. H_p-value: Kruskal-Wallis test signification level (only if H = 1).
