ANDERSON DARLING K SAMPLE TESTName:
The ksample AndersonDarling statistic is
where
where k is the number of samples (groups), n_{i} is the number of observations in group i, x_{ij} is the jth observation in the ith group, and z_{1}, z_{2} ..., z_{L} are the distinct values in the combined data set ordered from smallest to largest (L is less than n if there are tied observations). Chapter 8 of the MILHDBK17 derives the formulas for the critical values of the AndersonDarling test statistic. These formulas are rather involved and not given here. Dataplot uses the ANDYK routine from the MILHDBK17 to compute the AndersonDarling k sample test.
where <y> is the response variable; <groupid> is group (sample) identifier variable; and where the <SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification> is optional.

LET ALPHA = <value> with Y denoting the response variable, X denoting the groupid variable, and ALPHA denoting the significance level for the critical value. In addition to the above LET command, builtin statistics are supported for about 20+ different commands (enter HELP STATISTICS for details).
