  Ed 602 - Lesson 13 - Analysis of Variance
When using analysis of variance, it is a common practice to present the results of the analysis in an analysis of variance table.
This table which shows the source of variation, the sum of squares, the degrees of freedom, the mean squares, and the probability is sometimes presented in a research article.
In analysis of variance, if F is significant, we can use the Scheffe test to see which specific cell mean differs from which other specific cell mean.

  Analysis of Variance   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
The object of this comparison is to determine the proportion of the variability of the data that is due to the different treatment levels or factors as opposed to variability due to random error.
Basically, rejection of the null hypothesis indicates that variation in the output is due to variation between the treatment levels and not due to random error.
The analysis is broken down into “sums of squares” that measure the variability due to the levels and due to the errors.

 Analysis of variance (ANOVA)
Analysis of variance for testing for the equality of k mean values is a special case of a set of techniques known as linear modeling, which also includes regression analysis, a future topic.
The basic analysis of variance involves one nominal or ordinal scale variable that can be used to place each observation into two or more groups, and a single response variable.
The analysis can be viewed as determining whether knowledge of the group that a particular observation falls in will allow a better idea of the expected value of the response variable to be gained than in the absence of that knowledge.

In statistics, analysis of variance (ANOVA) is a collection of statistical models and their associated procedures which compare means by splitting the overall observed variance into different parts.
The initial techniques of the analysis of variance were pioneered by the statistician and geneticist Ronald Fisher in the 1920s and 1930s, and is sometimes known as Fisher's ANOVA or Fisher's analysis of variance.
The fixed-effects model of analysis of variance applies to situations in which the experimenter has subjected his experimental material to several treatments, each of which affects only the mean of the underlying normal distribution of the "response variable".

 ISS - TUT 116
The technique of Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was developed by Sir Ronald Fisher in 1936 to address both this problem and to address the more general problem of comparing means classified by more than one independent variable.
Because the methodology of analysis is essentially that of regression analysis, it is straightforward to extend the ANOVA model to include further continuous variables.
This chapter describes the use of SPSS for one-way analysis of variance and two-way analysis of variance.

Analysis of Variance, commonly referred to as ANOVA (uh-nove-uh), is the same as a between groups t-test when used with two groups.
He thought of it as a ratio of two types of variances, the variance between group means and overall variance in the sample.
It’s a ratio of the variance between the group means relative to the amount of variation in the sample (i.e., variation within each of the groups).

 Multivariate Analysis of Variance :: Multivariate Statistics (Statistics Toolbox)
The analysis of variance technique in Example: One-Way ANOVA takes a set of grouped data and determine whether the mean of a variable differs significantly between groups.
Often there are multiple variables, and you are interested in determining whether the entire set of means is different from one group to the next.
There is a multivariate version of analysis of variance that can address that problem, as illustrated in the Example: Multivariate Analysis of Variance.

 PA 765: Univariate GLM, ANOVA, and ANCOVA
Analysis of variance (ANOVA) is used to uncover the main and interaction effects of categorical independent variables (called "factors") on an interval dependent variable.
Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) is used to test the main and interaction effects of categorical variables on a continuous dependent variable, controlling for the effects of selected other continuous variables which covary with the dependent.The control variable is called the "covariate." There may be more than one covariate.
That is, the ANOVA F-test is a function of the variance of the set of group means, the overall mean of all observations, and the variances of the observations in each group weighted for group sample size.

Variables with levels that simply name a group are said to be measured on a nominal scale.
For two categorical variables, one measured on an ordinal scale and one measured on a nominal scale, you may assign scores to the levels of the ordinal variable and test whether the mean scores for the different levels of the nominal variable are significantly different.
For two categorical variables measured on a nominal scale, you can test whether the distribution of the first variable is significantly different for the levels of the second variable.

 Analysis of Variance
An important technique for analyzing the effect of categorical factors on a response is to perform an Analysis of Variance.
Depending upon the type of analysis, it may important to determine: (a) which factors have a significant effect on the response, and/or (b) how much of the variability in the response variable is attributable to each factor.
A one-way analysis of variance is used when the data are divided into groups according to only one factor.

There are two sources of variation when performing regression; the variation explained by the regression model and the variation that is left unexplained by the regression equation.
The one-way analysis of variance is used to test the equality of several independent means.

These latter variance components are then tested for statistical significance, and, if significant, we reject the null hypothesis of no differences between means, and accept the alternative hypothesis that the means (in the population) are different from each other.
If the variances in the two groups are different from each other, then adding the two together is not appropriate, and will not yield an estimate of the common within-group variance (since no common variance exists).
However, suppose that there also is a much larger variance in the cell with the highest mean, that is, the means and the variances are correlated across cells (the higher the mean the larger the variance).

The standard deviation, t-test and correlation coefficients involve variance in the concepts and/or calculation methods; however, use of the phrase "Analysis of Variance" (ANOVA) is reserved for a broad range of analytic techniques which address questions of statistical significance through calculation methods which divide overall variance into components.
The mathematical model states that the length of stay of a given patient is comprised of three components: the grand mean, the group mean and error.
Likewise the model states that the total variance (variance for all patients in the study) is comprised of two components: variance among group means and residual (error) variance.

 PA 765: MANOVA
Multiple analysis of covariance (MANCOVA) is similar to MANOVA, but interval independents may be added as "covariates." These covariates serve as control variables for the independent factors, serving to reduce the error term in the model.
That is, the larger the eigenvalue, the larger the group differences on the variate (the variable computed by the linear combination of canonical coefficients) for that canonical root.
Using discriminant analysis, the MANCOVA dependents are used as predictor variables to classify a factor (treatment) variable, and the discriminant beta weights are used to assess the relative strength of relation of the MANOVA dependents to the factor.

If the dependent variables are highly correlated, there is little advantage in including more than one in the test given the resultant loss in degrees of freedom.
If the variances in the two groups are different from each other, then adding the two together is not appropriate, and will not yield an estimate of the common within-group variance.
However, since there are multiple dependent variables, it is also required that their intercorrelations (covariances) are homogeneous across the cells of the design.
