If the distribution is parametric then yes.

Parametric statistical tests assume that your data are normally distributed (follow a classic bell-shaped curve). An example of a parametric statistical test is the Student's t-test.Non-parametric tests make no such assumption. An example of a non-parametric statistical test is the Sign Test.

A classic would be the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test.

I looked all over the internet and could not find a parametric equation for this shape. You can look at the link below to find the regular cartesian equation. If you are good at parametric equations you could probably convert this into parametric form. I am not so good at parametric equations.

Parametric statistics is a branch of statistics that assumes data come from a type of probability distribution and makes inferences about the parameters of the distribution. See related link.

Nonparametric tests are sometimes called distribution free statistics because they do not require that the data fit a normal distribution. Nonparametric tests require less restrictive assumptions about the data than parametric restrictions. We can perform the analysis of categorical and rank data using nonparametric tests.

If the distribution is parametric then yes.

A paired samples t-test is an example of parametric (not nonparametric) tests.

Parametric tests draw conclusions based on the data that are drawn from populations that have certain distributions. Non-parametric tests draw fewer conclusions about the data set. The majority of elementary statistical methods are parametric because they generally have larger statistical outcomes. However, if the necessary conclusions cannot be drawn about a data set, non-parametric tests are then used.

1. A nonparametric statistic has no inference 2. A nonparametric statistic has no standard error 3. A nonparametric statistic is an element in a base population (universe of possibilities) where every possible event in the population is known and can be characterized * * * * * That is utter rubbish and a totally irresponsible answer. In parametric statistics, the variable of interest is distributed according to some distribution that is determined by a small number of parameters. In non-parametric statistics there is no underlying parametric distribution. With non-parametric data you can compare between two (or more) possible distributions (goodness-of-fit), test for correlation between variables. Some test, such as the Student's t, chi-square are applicable for parametric as well as non-parametric statistics. I have, therefore, no idea where the previous answerer got his/her information from!

There are several reasons, including the following, in no particular order:I suspect that many or most people learn the parametric alternatives first, or learn mainly the parameteric alternatives.When the correct conditions hold, the parametric alternatives provide the best power.In some situations, such as the more complicated ANOVA and related methods, there are no nonparametric alternatives.Often data that do not appear to satisfy the requirements for parametric procedures can be transformed so that they do, more or less.Parametric procedures have been shown to be robust in the face of departures from the assumptions on which they were based, in many cases.

Parametric for one set?! Yeah
