Any Two Sample Median Tests (for differences) in R

  1. Dec 4, 2011 #1
    Hey,

    Is there any Two Sample Median Tests (for differences) in R. I tried searching for hours, and I got not luck. The closest ones I can think of is:

    mood.test
    wilcox.test

    but they are not really testing for median differences. The sign test, on the other hand, does tests for median differences but for only paired samples.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    A Mann-Whitney U test should do the trick (don't know off-hand which R function implements this).
