We define an adaptive procedure for control of the false discovery rate that is uniformly more powerful than the procedure of Benjamini and Hochberg. The power gain is tiny, however, and only appreciable for small numbers of hypotheses. We illustrate the new method with the case of two hypotheses, for which so far no procedure was known that controls false discovery rate but not also familywise error rate under positive dependence.

Abstract

We define an adaptive procedure for control of the false discovery rate that is uniformly more powerful than the procedure of Benjamini and Hochberg. The power gain is tiny, however, and only appreciable for small numbers of hypotheses. We illustrate the new method with the case of two hypotheses, for which so far no procedure was known that controls false discovery rate but not also familywise error rate under positive dependence.
