View source: R/MVComp.R

Description

Performs a traditional multivariate comparison of mean vectors drawn from two populations.

Usage

1
MVComp(data1, data2, level = .95)

Arguments

data1

a multivariable dataset to compare to.

data2

a multivariable dataset to compare.

level

draw elliptical contours at these (normal) probability or confidence levels.

Details

This function provides a T2-statistic for testing the equality of two mean vectors. This test is appropriate for testing two populations, assuming independence.

Assumptions:

The sample for both populations is a random sample from a multivariate population.

-Both populations are independent

-Both populations are multivariate normal

-Covariance matrices are approximately equal

Value

This function returns the simultaneous confidence intervals for the p-variates and its corresponding confidence ellipse at the stated confidence level.
