Abstract

The problem of statistical comparison of two distributions, continuous as well as discrete, is considered. Very slight and reasonable modifications of traditional parameteric models, e.g. `normal distributions with equal variances', are shown to result in permutation tests, only. Fisher's permutations test is shown to have optimum properties which mean a good merit for its practical use. Further, an accurate method of determining the $p$-value of Fisher's test is proposed.
