The limiting distribution for the linear placement statistics under the null hypotheses has been provided by Orban and Wolfe [9] and Kim [5] when one of the sample sizes goes to infinity, and by Kim, Lee and Wang [6] when the sample sizes of each group go to infinity simultaneously. In this paper we establish the generalized Kruskal-Wallis one-way analysis of variance for the linear placement statistics.
