It is a weighted sum of squares, where each deviation is weighted by the number of subjects in that group. 2069 In calculating the grand (overall) mean above it is simplest to add up all the scores and divide by total number of subjects. Thus, in the above case this yields x = 64 / 12 = 533 . , and N represents total number of subjects. Note that this is a weighted average and that means based on a larger number of subjects receive greater weight in determining the grand mean. Because of this it is not appropriate to find the grand mean with unequal group sizes by simply taking the average of the means— a mistake frequently made.
The null hypothesis that is being tested here is H0 : µ 1 = µ 2 = µ 3 The sample means above are estimating the population means: x1 = mˆ 1 , x2 = mˆ 2 , x3 = mˆ 3 Variety Dept. 8 We wish to determine whether the sample means differ sufficiently, given sampling error, to suggest that the underlying population means differ. To determine this the ANOVA computes and compares two basic sources of variation: 1. Between group variation—determines how much the group means vary about the grand (overall) mean.
HINT: Start with the definition for the mean for all subjects combined: xc = ( x1 + x2 + L + xn1 ) + ( x1 + x2 + L + xn 2 ) n1 + n2 3. An investigator runs a t test for independent samples on two groups of subjects (45 subjects in group 1 and 35 in group 2). She notes that the distributions of scores are quite positively skewed in both groups. Should she be concerned about this? 4.
