Comparison of Two Dependent Agreements Using Test of Marginal Homogeneity
Oh, Myong-Sik;

Oh (2008) has proposed the one-sided likelihood ratio test of the equality of two agreement measures. However the use of this test may be limited since the computations of test statistic and critical value are not easy. We propose a test for comparing two dependent agreements using some well known tests for marginal homogeneity, for instance, Bhapkar test, Stuart-Maxwell test. Data obtained from 2008 world figure skating championship ladies single is analyzed for illustration purposes.
