Syed Yahaya, S.S. and Othman, Prof.Madya Abdul Rahman and Keselman, H. J. (2006) Comparing the “Typical Score” Across Independent Groups Based on Different Criteria for Trimming. Metodološki zvezki, 3 (1). pp. 49-62.
Nonnormality and variance heterogeneity affect the validity of the traditional tests for treatment group equality (e.g. ANOVA F-test and t-test), particularly when group sizes are unequal. Adopting trimmed means instead of the usual least squares estimator has been shown to be mostly affective in combating the deleterious effects of nonnormality.
