Dataset of subjective judgement of gear teeth

A gear (cog wheel) with seven teeth is taken out of service and teeth examined for wear. Only adjacent pairs of teeth may be compared, but any given pair may be compared by a number of people, each of whom indicates which tooth they believe to be more worn.

The dataset is of the form of a seven-by-seven matrix, one column for each tooth. Each row consists of precisely two non-NA entries, say in columns A and B. The entries indicate the number of times an observer “prefers” (that is, judges to be more worn) tooth A and tooth B.

The board has a single degree of freedom.

Details

The null hypothesis is that there exist $p_1,...,p_ 7$ with $sum(p_i)=1$ such that the probability of preferring tooth $i$ to tooth $j$ is $p_i/(p_i+p_j)$. Alternative hypotheses might be that the comparison has some sort of handedness in the sense that the clockwise tooth might be preferred more frequently than might be expected by chance.
