Ad b. I don't know where upon you base your impression of inferiority of the new tests. It look like they have more possibilities than the older one. Also, given correct settings the results are the same, as is shown below: In[10]:= MeanDifferenceTest[{1, 2, 4, 6, 3}, {4, 10, 6, 8, 5, 8}, 0, EqualVariances -> True, TwoSided -> True] Out[10]= TwoSidedPValue -> 0.0188017 In[8]:= LocationEquivalenceTest[{{1, 2, 4, 6, 3}, {4, 10, 6, 8, 5, 8}}, "KSampleT"] Out[8]= 0.0188017 In[22]:= LocationTest[{{1, 2, 4, 6, 3}, {4, 10, 6, 8, 5, 8}}, 0, "T"] Out[22]= 0.0188017 Cheers -- Sjoerd On Feb 11, 10:19 am, Francisco Gutierrez <fgutiers2... at yahoo.com> wrote: > Dear Group: > Mathematica's statistical capacities have been enhanced in the last versions.

A simple but important command, MeanDifferenceTest was made obsolete. However, it was quite nice. It still works, but Mathematica informs it has been "superseded". Furthermore, the commands that are supposed to replace it, like LocationEquivalenceTest, seem inferior, and produce different results. How to interpret such differences? Anyway I hope MeanDifferenceTest is not wiped from the surface of the earth! > > Best, > Francisco
