In this article, we propose a new test for examining the equality of the coefficient of variation between two different populations. The proposed test is based on the nonparametric bootstrap method. It appears to yield several appreciable advantages over the current tests. The quick and easy implementation of the test can be considered as advantages of the proposed test. The test is examined by the Monte Carlo simulations, and also evaluated using various numerical studies.
