Nonparametric statistics is the field of statistical inference

where no assumption is made about the probability distribution of

the population under study. While most sample tests assume that

the parent population(s) of the sample data is (are) normally

distributed, the statistical methods of nonparametric statistics

are valid for any probability distribution that the population

may have (with certain exceptions).
