Significance test for Yule's Q

It says here that the test statistic for Goodman and Kruskal's gamma is $z=G\sqrt{\frac{n_c+n_d}{N(1-G^2)}},$ where $n_c$ and $n_d$ are the numbers of concordant and discordant pairs, resp. ...

Value of Goodman-Kruskal Gamma = 1 or -1 means that X and Y are monotonic but not strictly so i.e., $X_1 < X_2$ implies $Y_1 \leq Y_2$. Can someone please explain this to me with an example?

Am I using Goodman-Kruskal gamma or Somers D or Kendall tau correctly and what do they mean?

I am seemingly blindly following this publication that has done work very similar to what I need to accomplish (page 18-21). My analysis is a multinomial logistic regression where I have 3 possible ...
I have 5 samples (from the same population). I want to calculate the Goodman-Kruskal gamma ($\gamma$) for the population, based on the gamma of the 5 samples ($G_i$). Each data has 2 ordinal ...
