pingouin.anova

pingouin.
anova
(dv=None, between=None, data=None, ss_type=2, detailed=False, export_filename=None)[source] Oneway and Nway ANOVA.
 Parameters
 dvstring
Name of column in
data
containing the dependent variable. betweenstring or list with two elements
Name of column(s) in
data
containing the betweensubject factor(s). Ifbetween
is a single string, a oneway ANOVA is computed. Ifbetween
is a list with two or more elements, a Nway ANOVA is performed. Note that Pingouin will internally call statsmodels to calculate ANOVA with 3 or more factors, or unbalanced twoway ANOVA. datapandas DataFrame
DataFrame. Note that this function can also directly be used as a Pandas method, in which case this argument is no longer needed.
 ss_typeint
Specify how the sums of squares is calculated for unbalanced design with 2 or more factors. Can be 1, 2 (default), or 3. This has no impact on oneway design or Nway ANOVA with balanced data.
 detailedboolean
If True, return a detailed ANOVA table (default True for Nway ANOVA).
 export_filenamestring
Filename (without extension) for the output file. If None, do not export the table. By default, the file will be created in the current python console directory. To change that, specify the filename with full path.
 Returns
 aovDataFrame

Notes
The classic ANOVA is very powerful when the groups are normally distributed and have equal variances. However, when the groups have unequal variances, it is best to use the Welch ANOVA (
pingouin.welch_anova()
) that better controls for type I error (Liu 2015). The homogeneity of variances can be measured with thepingouin.homoscedasticity()
function.The main idea of ANOVA is to partition the variance (sums of squares) into several components. For example, in oneway ANOVA:
\[SS_{total} = SS_{treatment} + SS_{error}\]\[SS_{total} = \sum_i \sum_j (Y_{ij}  \overline{Y})^2\]\[SS_{treatment} = \sum_i n_i (\overline{Y_i}  \overline{Y})^2\]\[SS_{error} = \sum_i \sum_j (Y_{ij}  \overline{Y}_i)^2\]where \(i=1,...,r; j=1,...,n_i\), \(r\) is the number of groups, and \(n_i\) the number of observations for the \(i\) th group.
The Fstatistics is then defined as:
\[F^* = \frac{MS_{treatment}}{MS_{error}} = \frac{SS_{treatment} / (r  1)}{SS_{error} / (n_t  r)}\]and the pvalue can be calculated using a Fdistribution with \(r1, n_t1\) degrees of freedom.
When the groups are balanced and have equal variances, the optimal posthoc test is the TukeyHSD test (
pingouin.pairwise_tukey()
). If the groups have unequal variances, the GamesHowell test is more adequate (pingouin.pairwise_gameshowell()
).The effect size reported in Pingouin is the partial etasquare. However, one should keep in mind that for oneway ANOVA partial etasquare is the same as etasquare and generalized etasquare. For more details, see Bakeman 2005; Richardson 2011.
\[\eta_p^2 = \frac{SS_{treatment}}{SS_{treatment} + SS_{error}}\]Note that missing values are automatically removed. Results have been tested against R, Matlab and JASP.
Warning
Versions of Pingouin below 0.2.5 gave wrong results for unbalanced Nway ANOVA. This issue has been resolved in Pingouin>=0.2.5. In such cases, the ANOVA is calculated via an internal call to the statsmodels package.
