Unformatted text preview: 36-325/725 Homework 10 due Thursday November 21 (1) Let . We want to test that the median is versus . (a) Find the Wald test. (b) Explain how to do a nonparametric Wald test using the plug-in estimate and the bootstrap. (c) Find the likelihood ratio test. (d) Here is an exact (small-sample) nonparametric test. Let Let . Let Suppose we reject when where Show that this test has type I error that is less than or equal to . This is called the sign test. , and . First, (e) Let us compare these tests. Let simulate the test under . Do the following steps: (i) Simulate . (ii) Compute each test statistic and make the reject/retain decision. (iii) Repeat steps (i) amd (ii) 1,000 times and see how often you reject. Compare this to the nominal size . (f) To check the power of the test, repeat part(e) but simulate from a . Summarize your findings. (g) Let's check how robust the tests are to the assumption of Normality. Repeat (e) but simulate from a Cauchy distribution. Summarize your findings. 1 \$ G t k hTWfg T 3 & ' t 5V x S p T 3 & 3 fed 2t p WT51# RC V & Q T S & Q U1# RC t p Q \$G C 3 D B 3 C u S & ( y x w H Q X 0 dbave 3 u tr i H ec Y \$ 2sG qp fbhgfdbaH ` X PIH G Q E C PIH G F3 DB \$ G WlTkvji & v( & 93 0 [email protected]( & 3 0 & #5421)( \$" %#! , that is, (b) Analyze Mendel's data (example 11.16) using a test and using a likelihood ratio test.
