Abstract

For ordinal square contingency tables, Tomizawa et al. considered the measure to represent the degree of departure from the diagonals-parameter symmetry model. This measure attains the maximum value when one of probabilities for any two symmetric cells with respect to the main diagonal in the table is zero. The present paper proposes an improved measure which can attain the maximum value even when the probabilities are not zeros.
