How can I calculate a P value using a permutation test for these 2 groups?
controlA=[0.22, -0.87, -2.39, -1.79, 0.37, -1.54, 1.28, -0.31, -0.74, 1.72, 0.38, -0.17, -0.62, -1.10, 0.30, 0.15, 2.30, 0.19, -0.50, -0.09];
treatmentA=[-5.13, -2.19, -2.43, -3.83, 0.50, -3.25, 4.32, 1.63, 5.18, -0.43, 7.11, 4.87, -3.10, -5.81, 3.76, 6.31, 2.58, 0.07, 5.76, 3.50];
I know that both samples come from the same distribution.
thanks

In MATLAB, use the ranksum function.
For your data:
p =
0.350702223666955
h =
0
stats =
zval: -0.933228071880792
ranksum: 375
So the ‘p’ value indicates that they are not significantly different, and ‘h’ indicates that the null hypothesis is not rejected.

Thank you very much, but you calculated it using the Wilcoxon test and I have to program it using the permutation test.

I have never heard of the ’permutation test’. When I did an Interweb search on it, the Wilcoxon rank-sum test came up in several examples. That is the reason I use it here.

permutation test is equivalent to wilcoxon rank-sum test, but two are different test
