Normality Test A normality test is used to determine whether sample data has been drawn from a normally distributed population within some tolerance.

Culture versus person Another criticism of the IAT is that it may measure associations that are picked up from cultural knowledge rather than associations actually residing within a person. Older subjects also tend to have more extreme IAT scores, and this may be related to , or slower overall response times.

Summary Use the Kruskal—Wallis test when you have one nominal variable and one ranked variable. It tests whether the mean ranks are the same in all the groups. When to use it The most common use of the Kruskal—Wallis test is when you have one and one , an experiment that you would usually analyze using , but the measurement variable does not meet the assumption of a one-way anova. Some people have the attitude that unless you have a large sample size and can clearly demonstrate that your data are normal, you should routinely use Kruskal—Wallis; they think it is dangerous to use one-way anova, which assumes normality, when you don't know for sure that your data are normal. However, one-way anova is not very sensitive to deviations from normality. I've done simulations with a variety of non-normal distributions, including flat, highly peaked, highly skewed, and bimodal, and the proportion of false positives is always around 5% or a little lower, just as it should be. For this reason, I don't recommend the Kruskal-Wallis test as an alternative to one-way anova. Because many people use it, you should be familiar with it even if I convince you that it's overused. The Kruskal-Wallis test is a non-parametric test, which means that it does not assume that the data come from a distribution that can be completely described by two parameters, mean and standard deviation the way a normal distribution can. Like most non-parametric tests, you perform it on so you convert the measurement observations to their ranks in the overall data set: the smallest value gets a rank of 1, the next smallest gets a rank of 2, and so on. You lose information when you substitute ranks for the original values, which can make this a somewhat less powerful test than a one-way anova; this is another reason to prefer one-way anova. The other assumption of one-way anova is that the variation within the groups is equal. While Kruskal-Wallis does not assume that the data are normal, it does assume that the different groups have the same distribution, and groups with different standard deviations have different distributions. If your data are heteroscedastic, Kruskal—Wallis is no better than one-way anova, and may be worse. Instead, you should use for heteoscedastic data. The only time I recommend using Kruskal-Wallis is when your original data set actually consists of one nominal variable and one ranked variable; in this case, you cannot do a one-way anova and must use the Kruskal—Wallis test. Dominance hierarchies in behavioral biology and developmental stages are the only ranked variables I can think of that are common in biology. The Mann—Whitney U-test also known as the Mann—Whitney—Wilcoxon test, the Wilcoxon rank-sum test, or the Wilcoxon two-sample test is limited to nominal variables with only two values; it is the non-parametric analogue to. It uses a different test statistic U instead of the H of the Kruskal—Wallis test , but the P value is mathematically identical to that of a Kruskal—Wallis test. For simplicity, I will only refer to Kruskal—Wallis on the rest of this web page, but everything also applies to the Mann—Whitney U-test. The Kruskal—Wallis test is sometimes called Kruskal—Wallis one-way anova or non-parametric one-way anova. I think calling the Kruskal—Wallis test an anova is confusing, and I recommend that you just call it the Kruskal—Wallis test. Null hypothesis The null hypothesis of the Kruskal—Wallis test is that the mean ranks of the groups are the same. I think it's a little misleading, however, because only some kinds of differences in distribution will be detected by the test. For example, if two populations have symmetrical distributions with the same center, but one is much wider than the other, their distributions are different but the Kruskal—Wallis test will not detect any difference between them. The null hypothesis of the Kruskal—Wallis test is not that the means are the same. The common misunderstanding of the null hypothesis of Kruskal-Wallis is yet another reason I don't like it. The null hypothesis of the Kruskal—Wallis test is often said to be that the medians of the groups are equal, but this is only true if you assume that the shape of the distribution in each group is the same. If the distributions are different, the Kruskal—Wallis test can reject the null hypothesis even though the medians are the same. To illustrate this point, I made up these three sets of numbers. They have identical means 43. The biological question was whether protein polymorphisms would have generally lower or higher F ST values than anonymous DNA polymorphisms. When working with a measurement variable, the Kruskal—Wallis test starts by substituting the rank in the overall data set for each measurement value. The smallest value gets a rank of 1, the second-smallest gets a rank of 2, etc. Tied observations get average ranks; in this data set, the two F st values of -0. H is given by a rather formidable formula that basically represents the variance of the ranks among groups, with an adjustment for the number of ties. H is approximately chi-square distributed, meaning that the probability of getting a particular value of H by chance, if the null hypothesis is true, is the P value corresponding to a chi-square equal to H; the degrees of freedom is the number of groups minus 1. For the example data, the mean rank for DNA is 10. The null hypothesis that the F ST of DNA and protein polymorphisms have the same mean ranks is not rejected. For the reasons given above, I think it would actually be better to analyze the oyster data with one-way anova. It gives a P value of 0. If the sample sizes are too small, H does not follow a chi-squared distribution very well, and the results of the test should be used with caution. If you're using it to test whether the medians are different, it does assume that the observations in each group come from populations with the same shape of distribution, so if different groups have different shapes one is skewed to the right and another is skewed to the left, for example, or they have different variances , the Kruskal—Wallis test may give inaccurate results Fagerland and Sandvik 2009. If you're interested in any difference among the groups that would make the mean ranks be different, then the Kruskal—Wallis test doesn't make any assumptions. If the distributions are heteroscedastic, the Kruskal—Wallis test won't help you; instead, you should use for two groups, or for more than two groups. Examples Bluespotted salamander Ambystoma laterale. Bolek and Coggins 2003 collected multiple individuals of the toad Bufo americanus,, the frog Rana pipiens, and the salamander Ambystoma laterale from a small area of Wisconsin. They dissected the amphibians and counted the number of parasitic helminth worms in each individual. There is one measurement variable worms per individual amphibian and one nominal variable species of amphibian , and the authors did not think the data fit the assumptions of an anova.

Based on the direction of 1815 observations of submissive behavior, they were able to place the dogs in a dominance hierarchy, from most dominant Merlino to most submissive Pisola. Because this is a true ranked variable, it is necessary to use the Kruskal—Wallis test. The mean rank for males 11. Graphing the results It is tricky to know how to visually display the results of a Kruskal—Wallis test. It would be misleading to plot the means or medians on a bar graph, as the Kruskal—Wallis test is not a test of the difference in means or medians. If there are relatively small number of observations, you could put the individual observations on a bar graph, with the value of the measurement variable on the Y axis and its rank on the X axis, and use a different pattern for each value of the nominal variable. Here's an example using the oyster F st data: F st values for DNA and protein polymorphisms in the American oyster. DNA polymorphisms are shown in red. F st values for DNA and protein polymorphisms in the American oyster. DNA polymorphisms are shown in red. If there are larger numbers of observations, you could plot a histogram for each category, all with the same scale, and align them vertically. I don't have suitable data for this handy, so here's an illustration with imaginary data: Histograms of three sets of numbers. Histograms of three sets of numbers. Similar tests is more powerful and a lot easier to understand than the Kruskal—Wallis test, so unless you have a true ranked variable, you should use it. How to do the test Spreadsheet I have put together a on up to 20 groups, with up to 1000 observations per group. Web pages Richard Lowry has web pages for performing the Kruskal—Wallis test for , , or. R Salvatore Mangiafico's R Companion has a sample. WILCOXON tells the procedure to only do the Kruskal—Wallis test; if you leave that out, you'll get several other statistical tests as well, tempting you to pick the one whose results you like the best. The nominal variable that gives the group names is given with the CLASS parameter, while the measurement or ranked variable is given with the VAR parameter. References Picture of a salamander from.
