==================
Describing the similarities, differences, strengths and weaknesses of parametric and nonparametric tests. Identify the different types of parametric tests and their nonparametric equivalents.

In case of parametric tests the observations must be independent, must be drawn from a normally distributed population and should have the same variances, On the other hand in case of nonparametric tests observations need to be independent, and the variable being studied has an underlying continuity. So the similarity is that in both cases the observations are independent. The other similarity is that there is at least one nonparametric test equivalent to a parametric test. The differences are that parametric tests assume data to be ...
