Title: Multivariate Nonparametric Two-Sample Tests for Mixed Outcomes

Over the years, many nonparametric methods for multivariate outcomes have been proposed. These include coordinate-wise and spatial rank and sign methods and others based on different notions of depth. But these methods are aimed at the situation where all outcomes are continuous. In this talk, we will present new methods specifically designed for the case where some outcomes are categorical and others are continuous and we will focus on the two-sample problem.
