Wilcoxon test

a test used in statistics to compare paired data. Has the advantage of incorporating the size of the difference between the two sets of data in the comparison.

We provide tests of equality of mean and median values using parametric t-tests and non-parametric Wilcoxon tests, respectively.

Furthermore, to investigate the effect of the amount of data over evaluation results, the two selected tests were more suitable, because the Wilcoxon test could differentiate performance differences using a small amount of data while McNemar's test needed large sample size as shown in Figure-1.
Statistical analyses SIGN TEST and WILCOXON TEST were performed to determine the loci number with excess Heterozygosity which was based on the theory of a locus assuming mutation-drift equilibrium from 1000 interactions and that allele status changes was under IAM and SMM.
The Wilcoxon test, like all classical statistical tests, allows for the rejection of the tested hypothesis.

The Wilcoxon test paired data for the BS with the MUS.
b) Quantitative variables without normal distribution: Spearman Correlation coefficient and Wilcoxon test
Because dependent variables were not normally distributed, we conducted Wilcoxon tests to compare the number of negative and positive descriptions in the original telling phase with those in the retelling phase (see Table 1).
Once these are obtained, the confidence intervals and/or the Wilcoxon tests can be performed to obtain a diagnostic of benign or malignant.
The Wilcoxon tests of significance show, that with the exception of job security, all are significant.
