Abstract

This paper compares three statistics for testing simple independent action between two dichotomous factors with respect to the occurrence of a dichotomous outcome. Sizes and powers are examined for the statistics proposed, under a variety of model parameterizations. The results suggest that a test based on the ratio of the nonresponse probability estimates [considered originally by Wahrendorf, Zentgraf, and Brown (1981, Biometrics 37, 45-54)] has proper size and acceptable power, and is recommended for use in this setting.
