Statistical analysis of data sets usually involves construction of a statistical model of the distribution of data within the available sample and by extension the distribution of all data of the same category in the world. Statistical models are either parametric or non-parametric this distinction is based on whether or not the model can be described in terms of a finite-dimensional parameter and the models must be tested to ascertain whether or not they conform to the data, or are accurate.
This book addresses the testing of hypotheses in non-parametric models in the general case for complete data samples. Classical non-parametric tests (goodness-of-fit, homogeneity, randomness, independence) of complete data are considered, and explained. Tests featured include the chi-squared and modified chi-squared tests, rank and homogeneity tests, and most of the test results are proved, with real applications illustrated using examples. The incorrect use of many tests, and their application using commonly deployed statistical software is highlighted and discussed.
Theories and exercises are provided, making this book suitable for use in a one semester course in non-parametric statistics and tests.


1. Introduction.
2. Chi-squared Tests.
3. Goodness-of-fit Tests Based on Empirical Processes.
4. Rank Tests.
5. Other Non-parametric Tests.
