报告主题:A New Procedure for Controlling False Discovery Rate in Large-Scale t-tests


This paper is concerned with false discovery rate (FDR) control in large-scale multiple testing problems. We first propose a new data-driven testing procedure for controlling the FDR in large-scale t-tests for one-sample mean problem. The proposed procedure achieves exact FDR control in finite sample settings when the populations are symmetric no matter the number of tests or sample sizes. Comparing with the existing bootstrap method for FDR control, the proposed procedure is computationally efficient. We show that the proposed method can control the FDR asymptotically for asymmetric populations even when the test statistics are not independent. We further show that the proposed procedure with a simple correction is as accurate as the bootstrap method to the second-order degree, and could be much more effective than the existing normal calibration. We extend the proposed procedure to two-sample mean problem. Empirical results show that the proposed procedures have better FDR control than existing ones when the proportion of true alternative hypotheses is not too low, while maintaining reasonably good detection ability.
