    All models of this paper involve R x C contingency tables in which the total frequency is fixed (full multinomial model), or in which the row totals are fixed (product multinomial model). For the most part, we assume that the column categories are ordered. For the full multinomial model the null...

    The index of dissimilarity can be interpreted as the ratio of the number that must be moved from cells of excess to cells of deficit to achieve even distribution. This interpretation is used to generalize the index in two directions. First, the index is made applicable to more than two groups at...
