Abstract

Modified maximum likelihood estimators of the unknown parameters in a BIB design under non-normality of error distributions are obtained. They are shown to be more efficient and robust than the traditional least squares estimators. A test statistic for testing a linear contrast among treatment effects is developed. A real life example is given. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
