Wilcoxon Signedank Statistic Distribution in R (4 Examples) | dsignrank, psignrank, qsignrank & rsignrank Functions

 

In this tutorial, I’ll show how to use the functions of the Wilcoxon Signedank Statistic in the R programming language.

So without further additions, here’s the step-by-step process…

 

Example 1: Wilcoxon Signedank Statistic Probability Density Function (dsignrank Function)

This example shows how to draw a plot of the probability density function (PDF) of the Wilcoxon Signedank Statistic:

x_dsignrank <- seq(0, 100, by = 1)                       # Specify x-values for dsignrank function
y_dsignrank <- dsignrank(x_dsignrank, n = 20)            # Apply dsignrank function
plot(y_dsignrank, type = "o")                            # Plot dsignrank values

Example 2: Wilcoxon Signedank Statistic Cumulative Distribution Function (psignrank Function)

This example explains how to create a plot of the cumulative distribution function (CDF) of the Wilcoxon Signedank Statistic:

x_psignrank <- seq(0, 100, by = 1)                       # Specify x-values for psignrank function
y_psignrank <- psignrank(x_psignrank, n = 20)            # Apply psignrank function
plot(y_psignrank, type = "o")                            # Plot psignrank values

Example 3: Wilcoxon Signedank Statistic Quantile Function (qsignrank Function)

The third example explains how to plot a graph of the quantile function of the Wilcoxon Signedank Statistic:

x_qsignrank <- seq(0, 1, by = 0.01)                      # Specify x-values for qsignrank function
y_qsignrank <- qsignrank(x_qsignrank, n = 20)            # Apply qsignrank function
plot(y_qsignrank, type = "o")                            # Plot qsignrank values

Example 4: Generating Random Numbers (rsignrank Function)

Example 4 illustrates how to generate a set of random numbers with the distribution of the Wilcoxon Signedank Statistic:

set.seed(98989)                                          # Set seed for reproducibility
N <- 100000                                              # Specify sample size
y_rsignrank <- rsignrank(N, n = 20)                      # Draw N random values
y_rsignrank                                              # Print values to RStudio console
hist(y_rsignrank,                                        # Plot of randomly drawn density
     breaks = 50,
     main = "")
