Runs ANOVA, which checks differences of means of variables among groups.

Input Data

Input data should contain following columns.
  • Target Variable - Numeric column whose means should be calculated and compared between groups.
  • Explanatory Variable(s) - Column with categorical values to categorize rows into groups.


  • Power Analysis
    • Effect Size to Detect (Cohen's f) - Effect size (Cohen's f) that is considered to be meaningful. If not specified, the value calculated from the data is used.
    • Probability of Type 1 Error (P Value) - Probability of type 1 error that can be tolerated. Default is 0.05.
    • Probability of Type 2 Error (1 - Power) - (Optional) Probability of type 2 error that can be tolerated. If a value is specified, required sample size is estimated and reported in the Summary Table. If not, probability of type 2 error with current condition of the test is reported in the Summary Table.
