Show moreWe consider an exact sequential conditional test for three-way conditional test of no interaction. At each time τ, the test uses as the conditional inference frame the set F(Hτ) of all tables with the same three two-way marginal tables as the obtained table Hτ . For 3 × 3 × K tables, we propose a method to construct F(Hτ) from F(Hτ−1). This enables us to perform efficiently the sequential exact conditional test. The subset Sτ of F (Hτ ) consisting of s + Hτ − Hτ −1 for s ∈ F(Hτ−1) contains Hτ , where the operations + and − are defined elementwise. Our argument is based on the minimal Markov basis for 3 × 3 × K contingency tables and we give a minimal subset M of some Markov basis which has the property that F (Hτ ) = {s − m | s ∈ Sτ , m ∈ M}.
