A four action problem with ordered categorical data: are two distributions the same, ordered, or otherwise?
Consider a 2xJ contingency table under the product multinomial model when the J categories are ordered. We compare the two distributions by deciding among the following four choices: (i) distributions are the same; (ii) distribution 1 is stochastically larger than distribution 2; (iii) distribution 2 is stochastically larger than distribution 1; (iv) neither (i), (ii), or (iii). A four action problem is posed and two procedures are considered. One ad hoc and the second procedure is a conditional Bayes procedure, where the conditioning is on the marginal row and column totals. The problem was motivated by a data set comparing survey methods dealing with economic damage to farms by deer.
