bartlett_test(x, g, ...)

## Default S3 method:
bartlett_test(x, g, ...)

Arguments

x

a numeric vector of data values, or a list of numeric data vectors representing the respective samples, or fitted linear model objects (inheriting from class "lm").

g

a vector or factor object giving the group for the corresponding elements of x. Ignored if x is a list.

...

further arguments to be passed to or from methods.

Details

x must be a numeric data vector, and g must be a vector or factor object of the same length as x giving the group for the corresponding elements of x.

Value

A list with class "bartlett_htest" containing the following components:

statistic

Bartlett's K-squared test statistic.

parameter

the degrees of freedom of the approximate chi-squared distribution of the test statistic.

p.value

the p-value of the test.

conf.int

a confidence interval for the mean appropriate to the specified alternative hypothesis.

method

the character string "Bartlett test of homogeneity of variances".

data.name

a character string giving the names of the data.

vars

the sample variances across groups (samples).

n

the number of observations per group (sample)
