).
The pvalue()
, midpvalue()
and pvalue_interval()
methods for objects of class "NullDistribution"
are now vectorized.
Precision problem in the density function of approximative (Monte Carlo) null distributions. This also impacts mid-p-values and p-value intervals.
Precision problem in the support of approximative (Monte Carlo) null distributions.
Precision problem in the symmetric median scores transformation.
The weighted logrank transformation returned nonsense scores when supplied non-right-censored input; it now results in an error.
The maximally selected statistics transformation for ordered factors sometimes returned the wrong labels.
The ties.method
argument of logrank_trafo()
no longer
allows using "logrank"
and "HL"
to specify mid-ranks and the
Hothorn-Lausen method respectively.
Documentation updates.
surv_test()
is now defunct and has been removed.
method = "discrete"
in pvalue()
is now defunct and has
been removed.
The dperm()
, pperm()
and qperm()
methods for
objects of class "AsymptNullDistribution"
are no longer needed and
have been removed.
Objects of class "AsIs"
were handled incorrectly in some
cases, leading to, e.g., misleading error messages or test statistics
having the wrong sign.
Supplying decreasing scores for ordered factors with two levels
using the test functions' scores
argument resulted in increasing
normalized scores, leading to test statistics having the wrong sign.
The transformation function for ordered factors did not return
normalized scores in the two-level case when argument scores
was
used.
Precision issues in confidence intervals for location and scale problems.
When the general symmetry and marginal homogeneity tests were
applied to an object of class "table"
, the levels of the
measurement conditions were not preserved (but reordered alphabetically).

Maximally selected statistics can now be computed for objects of
class "table"
(see ?maxstat_test

symmetry_test()
has gained a new argument paired
that
is used to indicate if paired data have been transformed in such a way
that the resulting unstandardized linear statistic is the sum of the

The exact null distribution of test statistics based on quadratic forms can now be obtained in the univariate two-sample case.
The exact null distribution can now be obtained for tests specified with case weights, implying that exact p-values can be computed for 2 x 2 tables or K x 2 tables with K ordered categories.
Evaluation of the null distribution can now be suppressed for all
test procedures by setting distribution = "none"
.

Adjusted p-values based on the marginal distributions of the test statistics can now be obtained when the asymptotic null distribution is used.
Adjusted p-values based on the marginal distributions of the

(which is now deprecated), incorporating discrete distributional
characteristics when the approximative (Monte Carlo) null distribution is
used (see ?pvalue
).
Single-step or step-down adjusted p-values based on the
marginal distributions of the test statistics can now be obtained using
the Bonferroni or the Šidák method (see ?pvalue
).

The standardized linear statistic of the Pearson chi-squared test was off by a factor sqrt(n / (n - 1)).
The Pearson chi-squared test ignored user-specified transformations.
Partial matching of the scores
argument did not work for
Pearson's chi-squared test and the marginal homogeneity test.
The Fisher-Pitman permutation test, the Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney test, the Kruskal-Wallis test, the van der Waerden test, the Brown-Mood median test, the Ansari-Bradley test, the Fligner-Killeen test, the Wilcoxon signed-rank test, the Friedman test and the Page test did not return an error message when supplied with a censored response variable.
The Brown-Mood median test p-value computation used the wrong tail of the null distribution in the one-sided case.
The test statistic of the Wilcoxon signed-rank test sometimes had the wrong sign, due to being based on the sum of the absolute values of the negative, instead of the positive, differences between the paired measurements.
The Friedman test did not warn when weights were supplied.
Maximally selected statistics did not handle user-specified scores for ordinal variables correctly.
Two-sample problems were not identified as such if the grouping
variable had unused factor levels, causing problems if, e.g., trying to
use the subset
argument of formula
methods.
Stratified tests were not allowed if block
had unused factor
levels, causing problems, e.g., if trying to use the subset
argument of the formula
methods.
Transformations involving ordered factors or survival data sometimes failed when performed within blocks.
The maximally selected statistics transformation for factors sometimes dropped its column names.
The maximally selected statistics transformation for factors retained unused levels.
Approximative (Monte Carlo) p-values for stratified tests were wrong when the data were not ordered with respect to the blocks.
Exact p-values for stratified tests were wrong when each block contained precisely two observations.
Exact p-values for tests with an ordinal grouping variable were wrong.
The smallest single-step and step-down adjusted p-values sometimes differed from the global p-value.
Single-step adjusted p-values were too small when the support of the null distribution contained values equal to the observed test statistics.
Monotonicity of step-down adjusted p-values was not enforced when using the approximative (Monte Carlo) null distribution.
The density function of asymptotic permutation distributions for
maximum-type tests returned nonsense; it now reports NA
.
The density function of approximative (Monte Carlo) permutation distributions returned nonzero probabilities for values not included in the support.
The density function of exact permutation distributions returned a zero-length vector for values not included in the support; the probability of such values are now reported as 0.
The distribution and quantile functions of asymptotic permutation distributions for maximum-type tests were not handling vector arguments correctly.
The quantile function of exact permutation distributions sometimes
reported NA
when the 100 % quantile was requested.
The support of exact permutation distributions for stratified tests was not guaranteed to be distinct and ordered, which in turn caused failure when trying to obtain values from the density and quantile functions.
The printed output of the Pearson chi-squared test and the generalized Cochran-Mantel-Haenszel test claimed that a Linear-by-Linear Association Test had been carried out even in the singly ordered case, i.e., when either the response variable or the explanatory variable is an ordered factor; these are now reported as Generalized Pearson Chi-squared Test and Generalized Cochran-Mantel-Haenszel Test respectively.
The printed output of the Fisher-Pitman permutation test reported the parameter tested in the two-sample case when the explanatory variable was an ordered factor.
The printed output of the one-sided Ansari-Bradley test reported the opposite direction of the specified alternative (but performed the test in the specified direction and thus reported the correct p-value).
The printed output of the logrank test did not report whether a two- or K-sample test had been carried out.
The printed output of the logrank test did not report the tested parameter in the two-sample case.
The printed output of maximum-type tests did not include the alternative hypothesis.
The printed output of the general symmetry test claimed that a General Independence Test had been carried out; it is now reported as General Symmetry Test.
Objects of class "SymmetryProblem"
were not checked for
validity.
The Pearson chi-squared test, the generalized Cochran-Mantel-Haenszel test, the linear-by-linear association test and the marginal homogeneity test now use a scalar test statistic in the doubly ordered case.
The Fisher-Pitman permutation test, the Kruskal-Wallis test, the logrank test and the Friedman test now use a scalar test statistic in case the explanatory variable is an ordered factor.
The Fisher-Pitman permutation test no longer allows the test statistic to be specified; a quadratic form is now used in the K-sample case.
The Pearson chi-squared test, the generalized
Cochran-Mantel-Haenszel test, the Kruskal-Wallis test, the Friedman test,
the Fligner-Killeen test and the marginal homogeneity test no longer
features the distribution
argument (but still allow the type of
null distribution to be specified).
The Ansari-Bradley test no longer features the alternative
argument (but still allows the alternative hypothesis to be specified).
When the general symmetry test or the marginal homogeneity test is applied to a table, the variable indicating the measurement conditions has been renamed to conditions (from groups).
The teststat
argument no longer allows the use of
maximum-type statistics and quadratic forms to be specified using
"maxtype"
and "quadtype"
respectively.
The median and logrank transformations are now increasing functions.
The default number of Monte Carlo replicates used to approximate the exact conditional distribution has been increased to 10000.
The exact distribution of stratified test statistics is now obtained more efficiently, and especially so for large numbers of strata.
exact()
has algorithm = "auto"
as its new default,
preserving the behavior of algorithm = "shift"
in previous versions
of the package.
The shift algorithm (exact(algorithm = "shift")
) no longer
silently switches to the split-up algorithm when non-integer scores are
detected; it now fails with an error message.
Single-step adjusted p-values based on the joint distribution of the test statistics are now computed slightly faster due to using only the unique realizations of the test statistics.
The support of an asymptotic null distribution is now reported as
NA
.
Small changes in the printed output of the Pearson chi-squared test, the Fisher-Pitman permutation test, the Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney test, the van der Waerden test, the Brown-Mood median test, the marginal homogeneity test, the Wilcoxon signed-rank test, and generalized maximally selected statistics.
The printed output of the Fisher-Pitman permutation test now reports that a Linear-by-Linear Association Test is carried out when the explanatory variable is an ordered factor.
In the printed output of the Ansari-Bradley test and the Spearman test the tested parameter has been renamed to ratio of scales and rho respectively.
