In Sections 3.13.2, we discuss the two-sample Wilcoxon procedure. This includes the usual distribution-free rank test as well as the associated rank-based estimation, standard errors of estimates, and confidence intervals for the shift in locations. Wilcoxon procedures are based on the linear score function.
