More efficient unconditional tests for exchangeable binary data with equal cluster sizes


Author Info

  • Shan, Guogen
Registered author(s):


    We consider exact unconditional procedures for testing independence of exchangeable binary data with equal-sized clusters. The approximate unconditional approach is recommended as a basic procedure. The exact unconditional procedure based on estimation followed by maximization is recommended for the small number of clusters.
