Description

A method of evaluating trend (positive or negative) in 2 x K ordered tables is suggested for cases in which the scores for the first (K-1) categories are known a priori but the score for the last category is not known. Such a category is termed as open-ended category in this paper. Ordered tables with an open-ended category are often encountered while evaluating the Cochran-Armitage-Mantel (CAM) trend. In the present paper, the distribution of the test statistic is presented and simulations are carried out to check the asymptotics. The method is then exemplified by an existing data set.
