Abstract:

In an article in the Journal of Psychiatric Research, Cadoret, Woolson, and Winokur 1977 consider two theories regarding the genetic makeup of patients suffering from unipolar affective disorder. These two theories imply nested but olique order restrictions on the parameters of a statistical model. A likelihood ratio test for these two restrictions is studied. Author
