Abstract:

Interest in paired comparisons in statistics and psychometrics has developed in the contexts of the design of experiments, nonparametric statistics, and scaling, including multidimensional scaling. Applications have arisen in many areas, but most notably in food technology. marketing research, and sports competition. Paired comparisons have been considered in design of experiments as incomplete block designs with block size two by Clatworthy and others. Scheffe developed and analysis of variance for paired comparisons with consideration for possible order effects for the two treatments within blocks. When the usual parametric models of analysis of variance are imposed, the analysis of such designs follows standard methods and will not be discussed here.
