Jackknife Empirical Likelihood Approach for K-sample Tests

by   Yongli Sang, et al.
University of Louisiana at Lafayette

The categorical Gini correlation is an alternative measure of dependence between a categorical and numerical variables, which characterizes the independence of the variables. A nonparametric test for the equality of K distributions has been developed based on the categorical Gini correlation. By applying the jackknife empirical likelihood approach, the standard limiting chi-square distribution with degree freedom of K-1 is established and is used to determine critical value and p-value of the test. Simulation studies show that the proposed method is competitive to existing methods in terms of power of the tests in most cases. The proposed method is illustrated in an application on a real data set.
