Subject [jira] Commented: (MATH-160) Chi-Square Test for Comparing two binned Data Sets
Date Sat, 28 Oct 2006 05:25:19 GMT
    [ ] 
aeriform commented on MATH-160:

Not sure if this would be good enough as I am not sure entirely what you need, but there is
a reference to the normalized chi-squared in the following article on Issue 45 of Cytometry
page 48:

ISSN: 1097-0320 (Online)
ISSN: 0196-4763 (Print)

Published 2001 Wiley-Liss, Inc.†
Cytometry 45:47-55 (2001)

Probability Binning Comparison: A Metric for Quantitating Multivariate Distribution Differences

"This work is a US government work, and as such, is in the public domain in the United States
of America." (pg. 47)

Is a reference like this sufficient to develop code from?

> Current Chi-Square test implementation only supports standard Chi-Square testing with
respect to known distribution. We needed testing for comparison of two sample data sets where
the distribution can be unknown. For this case the Chi-Square test has to be computed in a
different way so that both error contributions (one for each sample data set) are taken into
account. See Press et. al, Numerical Recipes, Second Edition, formula 14.3.2.
