An Empirical Evaluation of a Test Procedure for the Median of Symmetrical and Asymmetrical Populations Using an Interpolated Nonparametric Confidence Interval

  •  Mohammad Ibrahim Ahmmad Soliman Gaafar    


This paper investigates, evaluates, and highlights the performance of a test procedure for the median of a single population using an old nonparametric interpolated confidence interval. Simulation results show that the test procedure under investigation strictly maintains the size at its nominal level and has generally higher empirical power under both symmetrical heavy-tailed and asymmetrical populations.
