- Multivariate analysis of variance
Multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) is a generalized form of univariate analysis of variance (ANOVA). It is used when there are two or more dependent variables. It helps to answer : 1. do changes in the independent variable(s) have significant effects on the dependent variables; 2. what are the interactions among the dependent variables and 3. among the independent variables.
Where sums of squares appear in univariate analysis of variance, in multivariate analysis of variance certain positive-definite matrices appear. The diagonal entries are the same kinds of sums of squares that appear in univariate ANOVA. The off-diagonal entries are corresponding sums of products. Under normality assumptions about error distributions, the counterpart of the sum of squares due to error has a Wishart distribution.
Analogous to ANOVA, MANOVA is based on the product of model variance matrix, Σmodel and inverse of the error variance matrix, , or . The hypothesis that Σmodel = Σresidual implies that the product A∼I . Invariance considerations imply the MANOVA statistic should be a measure of magnitude of the singular value decomposition of this matrix product, but there is no unique choice owing to the multi-dimensional nature of the alternative hypothesis.
- Samuel Stanley Wilks'
ΛWilks = ∏ (1 / (1 + λp)) 1...p
distributed as lambda (Λ)
- the Pillai-M. S. Bartlett trace,
ΛPillai = ∑ (1 / (1 + λp)) 1...p
- the Lawley-Hotelling trace,
ΛLH = ∑ (λp) 1...p
- Roy's greatest root (also called Roy's largest root), ΛRoy = maxp(λp)
Discussion continues over the merits of each, though the greatest root leads only to a bound on significance which is not generally of practical interest. A further complication is that the distribution of these statistics under the null hypothesis is not straightforward and can only be approximated except in a few low-dimensional cases. The best-known approximation for Wilks' lambda was derived by C. R. Rao.
In the case of two groups, all the statistics are equivalent and the test reduces to Hotelling's T-square.
