Mean values of location and dispersion statistics in a two-way table: a comparison among different scores systems


The main object of this paper is to verify that, in a two-way contingency table, the mean values, of location and dispersion statistics, do not depend significantly on the particular score system. More in detail, we compare Yates scores, inverse normal distribution based scores and Nair scores. We perform our analysis by using a Monte Carlo procedure.
