Abstract

Decady and Thomas (2000, Biometrics 56, 893-896) propose a first-order corrected UmeshLoughin-Scherer statistic to test for association in an r x c contingency table with multiple column responses. Agresti and Liu (1999, Biometrics 55, 936-943) point out that such statistics are not invariant to the arbitrary designation of a zero or one to a positive response. This paper shows that, in addition, the proposed testing procedure does not hold the correct size when there are strong pairwise associations between responses.
