Sign Test

Description

Test difference between means and variances of entire collection (EC) and core set (CS) for quantitative traits by Sign test (\(+\) versus \(-\)) (Basigalup et al. 1995; Tai and Miller 2001).

Usage

signtest.evaluate.core(data, names, quantitative, selected)

Arguments

data

The data as a data frame object. The data frame should possess one row per individual and columns with the individual names and multiple trait/character data.

names

Name of column with the individual names as a character string

quantitative

Name of columns with the quantitative traits as a character vector.

selected

Character vector with the names of individuals selected in core collection and present in the names column.

Details

The test statistic for Sign test (\(\chi^{2}\)) is computed as follows.

\[\chi^{2} = \frac{(N_{1}-N_{2})^{2}}{N_{1}+N_{2}}\]

Where, where \(N_{1}\) is the number of variables for which the mean or variance of the CS is greater than the mean or variance of the EC (number of \(+\) signs); \(N_{2}\) is the number of variables for which the mean or variance of the CS is less than the mean or variance of the EC (number of \(-\) signs). The value of \(\chi^{2}\) is compared with a Chi-square distribution with 1 degree of freedom.

Value

A data frame with the following components.

Comparison

The comparison measure.

ChiSq

The test statistic (\(\chi^{2}\)).

p.value

The p value for the test statistic.

significance

The significance of the test statistic (*: p \(\leq\) 0.01; **: p \(\leq\) 0.05; ns: p \( > \) 0.05).
