RE: st: non-parametric tests with Svy estimation
Before you explore the non-parametric option, it might be useful to check
whether the variable is log normal. In other words, if the natural log of
the "total healthcare costs" variable is normally distributed, I suppose
with the the appropriate adjustment, you can get around the normality issue
by using the transformed variable.
From: anju parthan <email@example.com>
I am using survey data. I would like to compare total
healthcare costs in two groups. The variable total
healthcare costs is not normally distributed,
therefore one would run non-parametric statistics.
Can someone tell me how I can run a non-parametric
statistics accounting for the survey data?
I have compared the two groups with lincom using
svymean but I feel I should use non-parametric
statistics instead of comparing the means.
I am sorry if I am missing something trivial. Thanks
for your time.
