I have 2 questions (unrelated): 1) How do I determine whether I use the p-values with ties or without ties? 2) is there a statistical test for medians that can account for multiple observations per person (kind of like a GEE)? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you have ties in your response variable, then you'd be better off using the with-ties p-value. You can check for ties with the Stata command -isid-. sysuse census kwallis medage, by(region) isid medage If you're interested in within-person comparisons, then there's Friedman's test; there are user-written commands, e.g., -friedman- and -skilmack-. For between-groups testing where there are multiple observations on each person, there is van Elteren's test (two groups at a time), again, with a user-written command, -vanelteren-. Another user-written command that could be helpful in your case is -somersd-, which allows for a -cluster()- option. All of these can be downloaded from SSC (-help ssc- for how). You can try -permute- with a randomized-block ANOVA, too. As I recall, there's a worked example in the documentation for -permute-, which is an official Stata command. "a statistical test for medians"--many nonparametric tests are tests of location only when the scale is the same between groups.
