Analysis of Variance and Covariance
Examples and How To
- One-Way ANOVA
Use one-way ANOVA to determine whether data from several groups (levels) of a single factor have a common mean.
- Two-Way ANOVA
In two-way ANOVA, the effects of two factors on a response variable are of interest.
- N-Way ANOVA
In N-way ANOVA, the effects of N factors on a response variable are of interest.
- ANOVA with Random Effects
ANOVA with random effects is used where a factor's levels represent a random selection from a larger (infinite) set of possible levels.
- Other ANOVA Models
N-way ANOVA can also be used when factors are nested, or when some factors are to be treated as continuous variables.
- Multiple Comparisons
Multiple comparison procedures can accurately determine the significance of differences between multiple group means.
- Analysis of Covariance
Analysis of covariance is a technique for analyzing grouped data having a response (y, the variable to be predicted) and a predictor (x, the variable used to do the prediction).
- Nonparametric Methods
Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox™ functions include nonparametric versions of one-way and two-way analysis of variance.
- Introduction to Analysis of Variance
Analysis of variance (ANOVA) is a procedure for assigning sample variance to different sources and deciding whether the variation arises within or among different population groups.
