Re: [Fwd: st: Kolmogorov Smirnov, groupvar as cumulative relativefrequencies or rawdata?] |

Title:

Hi,

Sorry about that, let me ask the question again, without the .dat:

Should groupvar in stata consist of raw data or already calculated cumulative relative frequencies..? I've done the latter, but now I see that other statistical-packages wants raw data and calculate the cumulative relative frequencies automatically.

I get the feeling from the help file that I have assumed correctly and that stata wants the cumulative rel. frequencies of the variable you want to test. Am I correct?

ksmirnov performs one- and two-sample Kolmogorov-Smirnov tests of the

equality of distributions. In the first syntax, varname is the variable

whose distribution is being tested, and exp must evaluate to the

corresponding (theoretical) cumulative. In the second syntax, groupvar

must take on two distinct values. The distribution of varname for the

first value of groupvar is compared with that of the second value

Regards,

AC
