parametric data

Due 3/28/19 8 p.m est

Article Attached ” Relationships between long-term stroke disability, handicap and health-related quality of life “

Data that conform to a pattern of distribution are known as “parametric data.” Since the data have a perceivable pattern, the researcher can make certain assumptions about them.

Not all data conform to a pattern, though, and statistics designed for use with those data are known as being “non-parametric.” While they do not come with the assumptions required by parametric tests, they often are not as powerful—having an increased risk of type 2 error—thus they require larger sample sizes.

For this Discussion, you assess the appropriate use of a non-parametric test in research.

With these thoughts in mind:

Post the title of the article . Explain whether the non-parametric test used in the study was appropriate and why. Then, suggest one alternative test that could have been used in the study. Justify the use of the alternative test.
