Empirical Likelihood and Ranking Methods
Empirical likelihood methods are applied to various problems in two-way layouts involving the use of ranks. It is shown that the resulting test statistics are asymptotically equivalent to well known statistics such as the Friedman test for concordance. Generalizations and applications to the multi-sample situation are presented.
