Article Title: On Nonparametric Tests for Transmission of Ailments
by Dawodu, G A

This work presents a nonparametric test statistic for testing the transmission of an ailment or trait. It is based on proportions and does not result into inflated calculated irrespective of how large the number of haplotypes (or transmission loci) can be. It enables the researcher to carry-out a stage by stage monitoring along all identified locus with a view to detecting the point (or transmission vibrant loci) at which the ailment can just be said to have achieved transmission. The identification of such vibrant loci will enable the researcher to easily identify most prominent causes of ailments since these are the sources for the activities at the transmission loci. All this will also allow the researcher to give hierarchical rankings to the activities at the loci with respect to the transmission of the ailment under study. These claims are illustrated with secondary data for the readers' perusal.
Keywords: transmission; tests; chi-square distribution; proportions; contingency tables and equivalent f-distribution test
