hov: Homogeneity of Variance

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

Oneway analysis of variance makes the assumption that the variances of the groups are equal. Brown and Forsyth, 1974 present the recommended test of this assumption. The Brown and Forsyth test statistic is the F statistic resulting from an ordinary one-way analysis of variance on the absolute deviations from the median.

hov(x, data = sys.parent(), method = "bf") ## x is a formula

## users will normally use the formula above and will not call the
## method directly.
hov.bf(x, group,  ## x is the response variable
       y.name = deparse(substitute(x)),
       group.name = deparse(substitute(group)))

Arguments

x

Formula appropriate for oneway anova in hov. Response variable in hov.bf.

data

data.frame

method

Character string defining method. At this time the only recognized method is "bf" for the Brown–Forsyth method.

group

factor.

y.name

name of response variable, defaults to variable name in formula.

group.name

name of factor, defaults to variable name in formula.

Value

"htest" object for the hov test.
