Description Usage Arguments Details Value On the Test Statistics Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

This function prints out a simple summary of the object returned by the function nparLD. The summary includes the model, the corresponding formula, the Wald-type statistic (WTS), and the ANOVA-type statistic (ATS).

Usage

## S3 method for class 'nparLD'
print(x, ...)

Arguments

x

an nparLD class object generated by nparLD (see examples).

...

further arguments passed to or from other methods.

Details

The Fx-LD-Fy design refers to the experimental design with x whole-plot factor and y sub-plot factors. A whole-plot (between-subjects) factor refers to a factor effective for each subject at all times. A sub-plot (within-subjects) factor refers to a factor effective at a single time point for all time curves and all subjects. The LD-Fy design refers to the experimental design with no whole-plot factor. See Brunner et al. (2002) for more examples.

Value

A list with the following numeric components.

RTE

summary of the relative treatment effect (RTE) in a n-by-3 matrix form, where n is the total number of time1, time2, and group levels, and group-time interactions; the summary includes the mean of the ranks (RankMeans) in the 1st column, number of observations without counting the repeated measurements within the cell (Nobs) in the 2nd column, and the relative treatment effect (RTE) in the 3rd column.

Wald.test

the test statistic, the degrees of freedom (df) of the central chi-squared distribution, and the corresponding p-value of the Wald-type test.

ANOVA.test

the test statistic, the numerator degrees of freedom (df) of the central F distribution, and the corresponding p-value of the ANOVA-type test; the denominator degrees of freedom is set to infinity.

covariance

the covariance matrix.

Conf.Int

the (pointwise) 100(1-alpha) percent confidence intervals. See ld.ci for details.

...

Other function-specific outputs. For example, ANOVA.test.mod.Box which is applicable to designs with whole-plot factor(s).

On the Test Statistics

Although we provide both Wald-type statistic (WTS, see Wald.test) and ANOVA-type statistic with the denominator degrees of freedom set to infinity (ATS, see ANOVA.test), ATS is typically preferred to WTS as it requires less assumptions on the covariance matrix and it has superior small sample performances. Moreover, for the main effects and interactions involving only the whole-plot factors, the modified ANOVA-type statistic with Box (1954) approximation (ANOVA.test.mod.Box) is preferred to ATS. See Brunner et al. (2002) for more details.
