## Which Wilcoxon test is suitable for paired data?

The paired samples Wilcoxon test (also known as Wilcoxon signed-rank test) is a non-parametric alternative to paired t-test used to compare paired data. It’s used when your data are not normally distributed.

**What is the Wilcoxon signed rank test and when do you use it?**

The Wilcoxon signed-rank test is a non-parametric statistical hypothesis test used either to test the location of a set of samples or to compare the locations of two populations using a set of matched samples.

### How do you do the Wilcoxon matched pairs signed rank test?

Procedure

- Determine the sign of the difference (Di) between each pair of observations.
- Examine the distribution of the differences.
- Rank the differences in order of absolute size with a rank of 1 assigned to the smallest difference.
- Reassign the signs of the differences to their respective ranks (Ri).

**What is a paired sample test?**

The Paired Samples t Test compares the means of two measurements taken from the same individual, object, or related units. These “paired” measurements can represent things like: A measurement taken at two different times (e.g., pre-test and post-test score with an intervention administered between the two time points)

#### Why use the Wilcoxon signed rank test?

Wilcoxon rank-sum test is used to compare two independent samples, while Wilcoxon signed-rank test is used to compare two related samples, matched samples, or to conduct a paired difference test of repeated measurements on a single sample to assess whether their population mean ranks differ.

**How do you do a matched pairs t-test?**

Matched-Pairs t-Test

- Define paired differences. Define a new variable d, based on the difference between paired values from two data sets.
- Define hypotheses.
- Specify significance level.
- Find degrees of freedom.
- Compute test statistic.
- Compute P-value.
- Evaluate null hypothesis.

## What is the Wilcoxon sign test?

The Wilcoxon Sign test is a repeated measures test of dependency. This test is mathematically similar to conducting a Mann-Whitney U-test (which is sometimes also called Wilcoxon 2-sample t-test). It is also similar to the basic principle of the dependent samples t-test, because just like the dependent samples t-test the Wilcoxon sign test

**Do Wilcoxon rank sum test test the difference in medians?**

The answer is that the Mann-Whitney and the equivalent Wilcoxon test (hereafter called the Mann-Whitney-Wilcoxon test) are rank sum tests and not median tests. Basically, the Mann-Whitney-Wilcoxon test ranks all of the observations from both groups and then sums the ranks from one of the groups which is compared with the expected rank sum.

### How is the Wilcoxon test used?

You want to know if two groups are different on your variable of interest
