# posthoc.quade.test: Pairwise post-hoc Test for Multiple Comparisons of Rank Sums... In PMCMR: Calculate Pairwise Multiple Comparisons of Mean Rank Sums

## Description

Calculate pairwise comparisons using Quade's post-hoc test for unreplicated blocked data. This test is usually conducted post-hoc after significant results of the omnibus test, `quade.test`.

## Usage

 ```1 2 3 4 5``` ```posthoc.quade.test(y, ...) ## Default S3 method: posthoc.quade.test(y, groups, blocks, dist = c("TDist", "Normal"), p.adjust.method = p.adjust.methods, ...) ```

## Arguments

 `y` either a numeric vector of data values, or a data matrix. `groups` a vector giving the group for the corresponding elements of `y` if this is a vector; ignored if `y` is a matrix. If not a factor object, it is coerced to one. `blocks` a vector giving the block for the corresponding elements of `y` if this is a vector; ignored if `y` is a matrix. If not a factor object, it is coerced to one. `dist` the method for determining the p-value. The default distribution is `"TDist"`, else `"Normal"`. `p.adjust.method` Method for adjusting p values (see `p.adjust`). `...` further arguments to be passed to or from methods.

## Details

A one-way ANOVA with repeated measures that is also referred to as ANOVA with unreplicated block design can also be conducted via the `quade.test`. The consequent post-hoc pairwise multiple comparison test according to Quade is conducted with this function.

If y is a matrix, than the columns refer to the treatment and the rows indicate the block.

See `vignette("PMCMR")` for details.

## Value

A list with class "PMCMR"

 `method ` The applied method. `data.name` The name of the data. `p.value` The two-sided p-value according to the selected distribution. `statistic` The estimated quantiles of the selected distribution. `p.adjust.method` The applied method for p-value adjustment.
