Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to describe a method of analyzing pairwise agreements and disagreements among nominally scaled observations into within and between group components. Expected values, biases, sampling variances, and covariances of the components of agreement are derived for the special case of two groups. A general method of obtaining exact joint, conditional, and marginal sampling probabilities of the components is described, and several large sample criteria are discussed. The proposed method of agreement and disagreement analysis should prove useful as a means of describing the results of experiments and assessing statistical hypotheses. (Author)
