    Mann-Whitney Test

    (Non-parametric independent two-group comparisons)

    Definition: A non-parametric test (distribution-free) used to compare two independent groups of sampled data.

    Assumptions: Unlike the parametric t-test, this non-parametric makes no assumptions about the distribution of the data (e.g., normality).

    Characteristics: This test is an alternative to the independent group t-test, when the assumption of normality or equality of variance is not met. This, like many non-parametric tests, uses the ranks of the data rather than their raw values to calculate the statistic. Since this test does not make a distribution assumption, it is not as powerful as the t-test.
