Statistical inference on comparing two distribution functions with a possible crossing point
AbstractBased on rank statistics, new distribution-free tests on the crossing point between two distribution functions are proposed. Simulation indicates that the new tests have higher power than tests in the literature. A new point estimate of the crossing point is given and is shown to be strongly consistent and asymptotically normal. Two kinds of asymptotically distribution-free confidence intervals of the crossing point have also been given.
