Wilcoxon rank sum test
Two categories; want to know whether oneranks significantly differently from (higher or lower than) the other.
so it can handle ordinal data
Suppose data from n samples, each inone of the two categories, is ranked 1-st,2-nd, 3-rd, ..., n-th.
: Categories are equally distributedamong ranks
so if k of data are in cat 1, then expect rank
sum k(avg(1,2,...n)) of cat 1’s.
