A Stata 9 package that might help you here is -somersd-, downloadable
from SSC, which calculates confidence intervals for a wide family of
rank statistics, based on generalizations of Kendall's tau-a, Somers' D
and median differences, ratios and slopes. -somersd- has a -cluster()-
option for clustered data, which allows the possibility of repeated
measures data.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes

Subject: st: Re: Non parametric repeated measures

I have been asked to analyse the following experiment The outcome score
is a 
bacterial concentration scored 0 to 5. The data consists of an initial 
score, the score after treatment A and then the score after treatment B.

This is measured on 32 subjects. The whole experiment is then repeated
on a 
new set of 25 subjects but this time the sequence is initial, treatment
treatment A. The null hypothesis is that the removal of bacteria is 
independent of the treatment sequence.
I have searched the archive but I cannot find a non-parametric repeated 
measures anova. As an alternative I can show, using the the ranksum
that there there is no significant difference between the three measures
the two experiments but I am not happy with this as it is ignoring the 
correlated nature of the data in each experiment.
I would be grateful for any advice on handling this data in Stata 9.2.
