Subject:      Need Nonparametric Paired Test for Serially Correlated Data
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

I wish to test whether one time series is significantly different (consistently higher or lower by testing the medians) than is another.

My first thought is to use a Wilcoxon Sign Rank Test, as these data are not normally distributed, but such a test requires independent samples.

Suggestions would be appreciated, especially those that are available in SAS. Formulae for construction of tests not available in SAS would be welcome as well. References would be useful, but because of my location, are less useful than the above two options.

Thanks for your thoughts and suggestions.
