Biometrika centenary: Nonparametrics

Hall, Peter

Description

Contributions in Biometrika to nonparametric statistics are surveyed, with particular emphasis on more recent work. It is argued that even in the journal's very early years it had interests in smoothing methods for density estimation, and in techniques for nonparametric regression, in addition to its more obvious focus on 'classical' nonparametric statistics such as ranking methods. Biometrikcfs early involvement with permutation testing has links to its contemporary work on bootstrap methods....[Show more]

dc.description.abstractContributions in Biometrika to nonparametric statistics are surveyed, with particular emphasis on more recent work. It is argued that even in the journal's very early years it had interests in smoothing methods for density estimation, and in techniques for nonparametric regression, in addition to its more obvious focus on 'classical' nonparametric statistics such as ranking methods. Biometrikcfs early involvement with permutation testing has links to its contemporary work on bootstrap methods. Emphases on different types of nonparametric statistics have evolved over time, however. A rapidly increasing proportion of the journal's pages is devoted to papers that include some use of nonparametric ideas or methods.
