Comparing subsample distribution vs whole sample

  1. Aug 19, 2011 #1

    I have sample of ~280 measurements. Some are replicates and some are not. I want to remove the measurements that have no replicates, so that I can apply various modeling techniques that need mean/stdev data.

    I would like to show that my subsample of ~100 measurements statistically has the same distribution as the whole sample.

    What kind of test can I use for this? I believe my difficulty here is that they are not independent groups of data.

    Thank you.

    I believe your difficulty in getting a reply is due to the fact that no one can figure out what you mean by a "replicate".
