Distribution-Free Runs Test for Conditional Symmetry
Communication in Statistics - Theory and Methods
A distribution-free runs test for conditional symmetry is proposed. The null distribution of the test statistics is derived. Intensive simulation is conducted to examine the power of the proposed test for different sample sizes and different alternatives. Data on the bilirubin level of babies in neonatal intensive care is used to illustrate the method.
