Assumptions of the ANOVA
 The error terms are randomly, independently, and
normally distributed, with a mean of zero and a common
variance.
– There should be no systematic patterns among the residuals
– The distribution of residuals should be symmetric (not skewed)
– there should be no relationship between the size of the error
variance and the mean for different treatments or blocks
– The error variances for different treatment levels or different
blocks should be homogeneous
 The main effects are additive
– the magnitude of differences among treatments in one block
should be similar in all other blocks
– i.e., there is no interaction between treatments and blocks
If the ANOVA assumptions are violated:
 Affects sensitivity of the F test
 Significance level of mean comparisons may
be much different than they appear to be
 Can lead to invalid conclusions
Diagnostics
 Use descriptive statistics to test assumptions
before you analyze the data
– Means, medians and quartiles for each group
(histograms, box plots)
– Tests for normality, additivity
– Compare variances for each group
 Examine residuals after fitting the model in your
analysis

Additivity
 Linear additive model for each experimental design

Yij =  + i + ij
CRD
Yij =  + i + j + ij
RBD
Implies that a treatment effect is the same for all
blocks and that the block effect is the same for all
treatments
When the assumption would not be correct...
Two nitrogen treatments applied to 3 blocks

Water Table
Differences between treatments might be greater in block 3
 When there is an interaction between blocks and
treatments - the model is no longer additive
– may be multiplicative; for example, when one treatment
always exceeds another by a certain percentage
SAS interaction plot
Testing Additivity --- Tukey’s test
 Test is applicable to any two-way classification
such as RBD classified by blocks and treatments
 Compute a table with raw data, treatment
means, treatment effects ( Y. j  Y..), block means
and block effects ( Yi.  Y.. )
Q = S Yij (Yi.  Y.. ) ( Y. j  Y.. )
 Compute SS for nonadditivity =
N = t*r
(Q2*N)/(SST*SSB) with 1 df
 The error term is partitioned into nonadditivity
and residual and can be tested with F
Test can also be done with SAS
Residuals
 Residuals are the error terms – what is left over after
accounting for all of the effects in the model
eij  Yij  Y..  Ti
CRD
eij  Yij  Y..  Bi  Tj
RBD
Independence
 Independence implies that the error (residual)
for one observation is unrelated to the error for
another
– Adjacent plots are more similar than randomly
scattered plots
– So the best insurance is randomization
– In some cases it may be better to throw out a
randomization that could lead to biased
estimates of treatment effects
Normality
 Look at stem leaf plots, boxplots of residuals
 Normal probability plots
 Minor deviations from normality are not
generally a problem for the ANOVA

Independence of Means and Variances
 A relationship between means and
variances is the most common
cause of heterogeneity of variance
Test the effect of a new
vitamin on the weights
of animals.
What you see
What the ANOVA assumes
Examining the error terms
 Take each observation and remove the general mean, the
treatment effects and the block effects; what is left will be
the error term for that observation
The model =
Yij  Y..  i   j  eij
Block effect =
i  Yi.  Y..
 j  Y.j  Y..
Treatment effect =

 

so ...
Yij  Y..  Yi.  Y..  Y. j  Y..  eij
then ...
Yij  Y i.  Y. j  Y..  eij
Finally ...
eij  Yij  Y i.  Y. j  Y..

 Yi.  Y. j  Y..  eij
Predicted value Ŷij  Y..  i   j
 Yi.  Y. j  Y..
Plots of
e ij vs Ŷij should be random
Plots of
e ij vs Yij will be autocorrelated
Residual Plots
 A valuable tool for examining the validity of assumptions
for ANOVA – should see a random scattering of points on
the plot
 For simple
models, there
may be a limited
number of
groups on the
Predicted axis
 Look for random
dispersion of
residuals
Residual Plots – Outlier Detection
 Recheck data input
 May have to treat as a missing plot if too extreme
Are the errors randomly distributed?
 in this example the variance of the errors increases with
the mean

Homogeneity Quick Test (F Max Test)
 By examining the ratio of the largest variance to
the smallest and comparing with a probability
table of ratios, you can get a quick test.
 The null hypothesis is that variances are equal,
so if your computed ratio is greater than the
table value (Kuehl, Table VIII), you reject the
null hypothesis.

Where t = number of independent

each mean square

5437.99/9.03 = 602.21
Table value (t=7, v=r-1=3) = 72.9
602.21>72.9
Reject null hypothesis and
conclude that variances are NOT
homogeneous (equal)
Other HOV tests are more sensitive
 If the quick test indicates that variances are not equal
(homogeneous), no need to test further
 But if quick test indicates that variances ARE
homogeneous, you may want to go further with a Levene
(Med) test or Bartlett’s test which are more sensitive.
 This is especially true for values of t and v that are
relatively small.
 F max, Levene (Med), and Bartlett’s tests can be adapted
to evaluate homogeneity of error variances from different
sites in multilocational trials.
Homogeneity of Variances - Tests
 Johnson (1981) compared 56 tests for
homogeneity of variance and found the Levene
(Med) test to be one of the best.
– Based on deviations of observations from the median
for each treatment group. Test statistic is compared to
a critical F,t-1,N-t value.
– This is now the default homogeneity of variance test in
SAS (HOVTEST).
 Bartlett’s test is also common
– Based on a chi-square test with t-1 df
– If calculated value is greater than tabular value, then
variances are heterogeneous
What to do if assumptions are violated?
 Divide your experiment into subsets of blocks or
treatments that meet the assumptions and conduct
separate analyses
 Transform the data and repeat the analysis
– residuals follow another distribution (e.g., binomial, Poisson)
– there is a specific relationship between means and variances
– residuals of transformed data must meet the ANOVA assumptions
 Use a nonparametric test
– no assumptions are made about the distribution of the residuals
– most are based on ranks – some information is lost
– generally less powerful than parametric tests
 Use a Generalized Linear Model (PROC GLIMMIX in SAS)
– make the model fit the data, rather than changing the data to fit the
model
Independence between means and variances...
 Can usually tell just by looking. Do the variances
increase as the means increase?
 If so, construct a table of ratios of variance to
means and standard deviation to means
 Determine which is more nearly proportional - the
ratio that remains more constant will be the one
more nearly proportional
 This information is necessary to know which
transformation to use – the idea is to convert a
known probability distribution to a normal
distribution

The Log Transformation
 When the standard deviations (not the variances) of
samples are roughly proportional to the means, the log
transformation is most effective
 Common for counts that vary across a wide range of
values
– numbers of insects
– number of diseased plants/plot
 Also applicable if there is evidence of multiplicative
rather than additive main effects
– e.g., an insecticide reduces numbers of insects by 50%
General remarks...
 Data with negative values cannot be
transformed with logs
 Zeros present a special problem
 If negative values or zeros are present, add 1 to
all data points before transforming
 You can multiply all data points by a constant
without violating any rules
 Do this if any of the data points are less than 1
(to avoid negative logs)
Recheck...
 After transformation, rerun the ANOVA on the
transformed data
 Recheck the transformed data against the
assumptions for the ANOVA
– Look at residual plots, normal plots
– Carry out Levene’s test or Bartlett’s for homogeneity of variance
– Apply Tukey’s test for additivity
 Beware that a transformation that corrects one
violation in assumptions may introduce another
Square Root Transformation
 One of a family of power transformations
 Use when you have counts of rare events in time or space
– number of insects caught in a trap
 The variance tends to be proportional to the mean
 May follow a Poisson distribution
 If there are counts under 10, it is best to use square root
of Y + .5
 Will be easier to declare significant differences in mean
separation
 When reporting, “detransform” the means – present
summary mean tables on original scale
Arcsin or Angular Transformation
arcsin Yij
 Counts expressed as percentages or proportions of
the total sample may require transformation
 Follow a binomial distribution - variances tend to be
small at both ends of the range of values ( close to
0 and 100%)
 Not all percentage data are binomial in nature
– e.g., grain protein is a continuous, quantitative variable
that would tend to follow a normal distribution
 If appropriate, it usually helps in mean separation
Arcsin or Angular Transformation
arcsin Yij
 Data should be transformed if the range of percentages is
greater than 40
 May not be necessary for percentages in the range of 30-
70%
 If percentages are in the range of 0-30% or 70-100%, a
square root transformation may be better
 Do not include treatments that are fixed at 0% or at 100%
 Percentages are converted to an angle expressed in
degrees or in radians
– express Yij as a decimal fraction – gives results in radians
– 1 radian = 57.296 degrees

Reasons for Transformation
 We don’t use transformation just to give us
results more to our liking
 We transform data so that the analysis will be
valid and the conclusions correct
 Remember ....
– all tests of significance and mean separation should
be carried out on the transformed data
– calculate means of the transformed data before
“detransforming”
