st: Re: permute
I often have to analyse small datasets and I normally use StatXact. I no
longer have access to this program so I thought that I would use permute as
an option. When I use the ranksum test I get reasonable agrrement between
the probablities from StatXact and permute (e.g. asymptotic p=0.0749,
permute p=0.0789 and StatXact p=0.0794). However when I use signrank I get
no agreement at all e.g. asymptotic p 0.0431, permute p=1.00, StatXact
p=0.0079). The code I am using is:
permute diff z=r(z), reps(10000) nowarn: signrank diff=0
Could somebody tell me if my code is in error, or am I entirley incorrect in
using permute for exact calculations on small numbers.
