## ANOVA in R | A Complete Step-by-Step Guide with Examples

Published on March 6, 2020 by Rebecca Bevans . Revised on November 17, 2022.

## Table of contents

## Install and load the packages

First, install the packages you will need for the analysis (this only needs to be done once):

Then load these packages into your R environment (do this every time you restart the R program):

Note that this data was generated for this example, it’s not from a real experiment.

Use the following code, replacing the path/to/your/file text with the actual path to your file:

Before continuing, you can check that the data has read in correctly:

‘Yield’ should be a quantitative variable with a numeric summary (minimum, median , mean , maximum).

## One-way ANOVA

The rest of the values in the output table describe the independent variable and the residuals:

- The Df column displays the degrees of freedom for the independent variable (the number of levels in the variable minus 1), and the degrees of freedom for the residuals (the total number of observations minus one and minus the number of levels in the independent variables).
- The Sum Sq column displays the sum of squares (a.k.a. the total variation between the group means and the overall mean).
- The Mean Sq column is the mean of the sum of squares, calculated by dividing the sum of squares by the degrees of freedom for each parameter.
- The F value column is the test statistic from the F test. This is the mean square of each independent variable divided by the mean square of the residuals. The larger the F value, the more likely it is that the variation caused by the independent variable is real and not due to chance.
- The Pr(>F) column is the p value of the F statistic. This shows how likely it is that the F value calculated from the test would have occurred if the null hypothesis of no difference among group means were true.

## Two-way ANOVA

## Adding interactions between variables

## Adding a blocking variable

The model with the lowest AIC score (listed first in the table) is the best fit for the data:

From these diagnostic plots we can say that the model fits the assumption of homoscedasticity.

When plotting the results of a model, it is important to display:

- the raw data
- summary information, usually the mean and standard error of each group being compared
- letters or symbols above each group being compared to indicate the groupwise differences.

## Find the groupwise differences

Instead of printing the TukeyHSD results in a table, we’ll do it in a graph.

## Make a data frame with the group labels

Now we need to make an additional data frame so we can add these groupwise differences to our graph.

First, summarize the original data using fertilizer type and planting density as grouping variables.

Next, add the group labels as a new variable in the data frame.

Your data frame should look like this:

Now we are ready to start making the plot for our report.

## Plot the raw data

## Add the means and standard errors to the graph

## Split up the data

## Make the graph ready for publication

In this step we will remove the grey background and add axis labels.

The final version of your graph looks like this:

In addition to a graph, it’s important to state the results of the ANOVA test. Include:

- A brief description of the variables you tested
- The F value, degrees of freedom, and p values for each independent variable
- What the results mean.

- One-way ANOVA : Testing the relationship between shoe brand (Nike, Adidas, Saucony, Hoka) and race finish times in a marathon.
- Two-way ANOVA : Testing the relationship between shoe brand (Nike, Adidas, Saucony, Hoka), runner age group (junior, senior, master’s), and race finishing times in a marathon.

Some examples of factorial ANOVAs include:

- Testing the combined effects of vaccination (vaccinated or not vaccinated) and health status (healthy or pre-existing condition) on the rate of flu infection in a population.
- Testing the effects of marital status (married, single, divorced, widowed), job status (employed, self-employed, unemployed, retired), and family history (no family history, some family history) on the incidence of depression in a population.
- Testing the effects of feed type (type A, B, or C) and barn crowding (not crowded, somewhat crowded, very crowded) on the final weight of chickens in a commercial farming operation.

## Reporting the results of the ANOVA

Otherwise, or after installing the psych package, run the following commands.

This finding could be reported in the following way:

We observed differences in petal lengths between the three species of Iris Setosa (M=1.46), Versicolor (M=4.26), and Virginica (M=5.55). An ANOVA showed that these differences between species were significant, i.e. there was a significant effect of the species on the petal length of the flower, F(2,147)=1180, p<.001.

And then run the command for the graph.

Then, run the car Anova command on our fit2 object, specifying that we wish to use Type III errors.

This produces the following output:

We could report this finding as shown below.

The covariate, sepal length, was significantly related to the flowers’ petal length, F(1,146)=194.95, p<.001. There was also a significant effect of the species of the plant on the petal length after controlling for the effect of the sepal length, F(2,146)=624.99, p<.001.

## How to report the results of an anova() model comparison?

- 2 $\begingroup$ Charlotte, it depends on publication norm you use. For example, I use APA norms (American Psychological Association) and they recommend to report anova in this format: F(2, 60914) = 128.54, p < .001. Note that first degrees of freedom are the difference of d.f. between your model and its submodel. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Dostal Feb 26, 2021 at 9:58
- $\begingroup$ Thank you @DanielDostal, I also use APA so this solves my question! $\endgroup$ – Charlotte Feb 26, 2021 at 10:07
- $\begingroup$ Follow up question: Why is it F(2, 60914), and not F(2, 60916)? $\endgroup$ – Dunen Aug 1, 2022 at 10:51

## Stats and R

## Introduction

- Student t-test is used to compare 2 groups ;
- ANOVA generalizes the t-test beyond 2 groups, so it is used to compare 3 or more groups .

- the aim of the ANOVA, when it should be used and the null/alternative hypothesis
- the underlying assumptions of the ANOVA and how to check them
- how to perform the ANOVA in R
- how to interpret results of the ANOVA
- understand the notion of post-hoc test and interpret the results
- how to visualize results of ANOVA and post-hoc tests

- study whether measurements are similar across different modalities (also called levels or treatments in the context of ANOVA) of a categorical variable
- compare the impact of the different levels of a categorical variable on a quantitative variable
- explain a quantitative variable based on a qualitative variable

The null and alternative hypothesis of an ANOVA are:

- \(H_0\) : \(\mu_{Adelie} = \mu_{Chinstrap} = \mu_{Gentoo}\) ( \(\Rightarrow\) the 3 species are equal in terms of flipper length)
- \(H_1\) : at least one mean is different ( \(\Rightarrow\) at least one species is different from the other 2 species in terms of flipper length)

## Underlying assumptions of ANOVA

- Variable type : ANOVA requires a mix of one continuous quantitative dependent variable (which corresponds to the measurements to which the question relates) and one qualitative independent variable (with at least 2 levels which will determine the groups to compare).
- Independence : the data, collected from a representative and randomly selected portion of the total population , should be independent between groups and within each group. The assumption of independence is most often verified based on the design of the experiment and on the good control of experimental conditions rather than via a formal test. If you are still unsure about independence based on the experiment design, ask yourself if one observation is related to another (if one observation has an impact on another) within each group or between the groups themselves. If not, it is most likely that you have independent samples . If observations between samples (forming the different groups to be compared) are dependent (for example, if three measurements have been collected on the same individuals as it is often the case in medical studies when measuring a metric (i) before, (ii) during and (iii) after a treatment), the repeated measures ANOVA should be preferred in order to take into account the dependency between the samples.
- In case of small samples, residuals 2 should follow approximately a normal distribution . The normality assumption can be tested visually thanks to a histogram and a QQ-plot , and/or formally via a normality test such as the Shapiro-Wilk or Kolmogorov-Smirnov test. If, even after a transformation of your data (e.g., logarithmic transformation, square root, Box-Cox, etc.), the residuals still do not follow approximately a normal distribution, the Kruskal-Wallis test can be applied ( kruskal.test(variable ~ group, data = dat in R). This non-parametric test, robust to non normal distributions, has the same goal than the ANOVA—compare 3 or more groups—but it uses sample medians instead of sample means to compare groups.
- In case of large samples, normality is not required (this is a common misconception!). By the central limit theorem , sample means of large samples are often well-approximated by a normal distribution even if the data are not normally distributed ( Stevens 2013 ) . 3 It is therefore not required to test the normality assumption when the number of observations in each group/sample is large (usually \(n \ge 30\) ).
- Equality of variances : the variances of the different groups should be equal in the populations (an assumption called homogeneity of the variances, or even sometimes referred as homoscedasticity, as opposed to heteroscedasticity if variances are different across groups). This assumption can be tested graphically (by comparing the dispersion in a boxplot or dotplot for instance), or more formally via the Levene’s test ( leveneTest(variable ~ group) from the {car} package) or Bartlett’s test, among others. If the hypothesis of equal variances is rejected, another version of the ANOVA can be used: the Welch ANOVA ( oneway.test(variable ~ group, var.equal = FALSE) ). Note that the Welch ANOVA does not require homogeneity of the variances, but the distributions should still follow approximately a normal distribution. Note that the Kruskal-Wallis test does not require the assumptions of normality nor homoscedasticity of the variances. 4
- use the non-parametric version (i.e., the Kruskal-Wallis test)
- transform your data (logarithmic or Box-Cox transformation, among others)
- or remove them (be careful)

- Check that your observations are independent.
- If variances are equal, use ANOVA .
- If variances are not equal, use the Welch ANOVA .
- If normality is not assumed, use the Kruskal-Wallis test .

We can now check normality visually:

- ANOVA is quite robust to small deviations from normality. This means that it is not an issue (from the perspective of the interpretation of the ANOVA results) if a small number of points deviates slightly from the normality,
- normality tests are sometimes quite conservative, meaning that the null hypothesis of normality may be rejected due to a limited deviation from normality. This is especially the case with large samples as power of the test increases with the sample size.

Remember that the null and alternative hypothesis of these tests are:

So in summary, in ANOVA you actually have two options for testing normality:

- Checking normality separately for each group on the “raw” data (Y values)
- Checking normality on all residuals (but not per group)

The null and alternative hypothesis for both tests are:

In R, the Levene’s test can be performed thanks to the leveneTest() function from the {car} package:

We showed that all assumptions of the ANOVA are met.

Or with the {ggplot2} package :

This can be done, for instance, with the aggregate() function:

or with the summarise() and group_by() functions from the {dplyr} package:

ANOVA in R can be done in several ways, of which two are presented below:

The advantage of the second method, however, is that:

- the full ANOVA table (with degrees of freedom, mean squares, etc.) is printed, which may be of interest in some (theoritical) cases
- results of the ANOVA ( res_aov ) can be saved for later use (especially useful for post-hoc tests )

This family of statistical tests is the topic of the following sections.

## Post-hoc test

## Post-hoc tests in R and their interpretation

- Tukey HSD , used to compare all groups to each other (so all possible comparisons of 2 groups).
- Dunnett , used to make comparisons with a reference group . For example, consider 2 treatment groups and one control group. If you only want to compare the 2 treatment groups with respect to the control group, and you do not want to compare the 2 treatment groups to each other, the Dunnett’s test is preferred.
- Bonferroni correction if one has a set of planned comparisons to do.

The other two post-hoc tests are presented in the next sections.

- Chinstrap versus Adelie (line Chinstrap - Adelie == 0 )
- Gentoo vs. Adelie (line Gentoo - Adelie == 0 )
- Gentoo vs. Chinstrap (line Gentoo - Chinstrap == 0 )

The results of the post-hoc test can be visualized with the plot() function:

Note that the Tukey HSD test can also be done in R with the TukeyHSD() function:

The results can also be visualized with the plot() function:

- the Tukey HSD test allows to compares all groups but at the cost of less power
- the Dunnett’s test allows to only make comparisons with a reference group , but with the benefit of more power

Again, the results of the post-hoc test can be visualized with the plot() function:

Gentoo now being the first category of the three, it is indeed considered as the reference level.

We can then run the Dunett’s test with the new results of the ANOVA:

The first one is edited by me based on the code found in this article :

And the second method is from the {ggstatsplot} package:

(Note that this article is available for download on my Gumroad page .)

The p -values are adjusted to keep the global significance level to the desired level. ↩︎

Thanks Michael Friendly for this suggestion. ↩︎

This chapter describes the different types of ANOVA for comparing independent groups , including:

- One-way ANOVA : an extension of the independent samples t-test for comparing the means in a situation where there are more than two groups. This is the simplest case of ANOVA test where the data are organized into several groups according to only one single grouping variable (also called factor variable). Other synonyms are: 1 way ANOVA , one-factor ANOVA and between-subject ANOVA .
- two-way ANOVA used to evaluate simultaneously the effect of two different grouping variables on a continuous outcome variable. Other synonyms are: two factorial design , factorial anova or two-way between-subjects ANOVA .
- three-way ANOVA used to evaluate simultaneously the effect of three different grouping variables on a continuous outcome variable. Other synonyms are: factorial ANOVA or three-way between-subjects ANOVA .

Note that, the independent grouping variables are also known as between-subjects factors .

- Compute and interpret the different types of ANOVA in R for comparing independent groups.
- Check ANOVA test assumptions
- Perform post-hoc tests , multiple pairwise comparisons between groups to identify which groups are different
- Visualize the data using box plots, add ANOVA and pairwise comparisons p-values to the plot

## Assumptions

Briefly, the mathematical procedure behind the ANOVA test is as follow:

- Compute the within-group variance , also known as residual variance . This tells us, how different each participant is from their own group mean (see figure, panel B).
- Compute the variance between group means (see figure, panel A).
- Produce the F-statistic as the ratio of variance.between.groups/variance.within.groups .

The ANOVA test makes the following assumptions about the data:

- Independence of the observations . Each subject should belong to only one group. There is no relationship between the observations in each group. Having repeated measures for the same participants is not allowed.
- No significant outliers in any cell of the design
- Normality . the data for each design cell should be approximately normally distributed.
- Homogeneity of variances . The variance of the outcome variable should be equal in every cell of the design.

It’s also possible to perform robust ANOVA test using the WRS2 R package.

No matter your choice, you should report what you did in your results.

Make sure you have the following R packages:

- tidyverse for data manipulation and visualization
- ggpubr for creating easily publication ready plots
- rstatix provides pipe-friendly R functions for easy statistical analyses
- datarium : contains required data sets for this chapter

Key R functions: anova_test() [rstatix package], wrapper around the function car::Anova() .

## One-way ANOVA

Load and inspect the data by using the function sample_n_by() to display one random row by groups:

Show the levels of the grouping variable:

If the levels are not automatically in the correct order, re-order them as follow:

Compute some summary statistics (count, mean and sd) of the variable weight organized by groups:

Create a box plot of weight by group :

There were no extreme outliers.

## Normality assumption

The normality assumption can be checked by using one of the following two approaches:

- Analyzing the ANOVA model residuals to check the normality for all groups together. This approach is easier and it’s very handy when you have many groups or if there are few data points per group.
- Check normality for each group separately . This approach might be used when you have only a few groups and many data points per group.

In this section, we’ll show you how to proceed for both option 1 and 2.

## Homogneity of variance assumption

- F indicates that we are comparing to an F-distribution (F-test); (2, 27) indicates the degrees of freedom in the numerator (DFn) and the denominator (DFd), respectively; 4.85 indicates the obtained F-statistic value
- p specifies the p-value
- ges is the generalized effect size (amount of variability due to the factor)

The output contains the following columns:

- estimate : estimate of the difference between means of the two groups
- conf.low , conf.high : the lower and the upper end point of the confidence interval at 95% (default)
- p.adj : p-value after adjustment for the multiple comparisons.

We could report the results of one-way ANOVA as follow:

- The Welch one-way test is an alternative to the standard one-way ANOVA in the situation where the homogeneity of variance can’t be assumed (i.e., Levene test is significant).
- In this case, the Games-Howell post hoc test or pairwise t-tests (with no assumption of equal variances) can be used to compare all possible combinations of group differences.

## Two-way ANOVA

Load the data and inspect one random row by groups:

Compute the mean and the SD (standard deviation) of the score by groups:

Create a box plot of the score by gender levels, colored by education levels:

Identify outliers in each cell design:

Create QQ plots for each cell of design:

This can be checked using the Levene’s test:

- Simple main effect : run one-way model of the first variable at each level of the second variable,
- Simple pairwise comparisons : if the simple main effect is significant, run multiple pairwise comparisons to determine which groups are different.

## Procedure for significant two-way interaction

Here, we’ll run a one-way ANOVA of education_level at each levels of gender .

## Compute pairwise comparisons

Compare the score of the different education levels by gender levels:

## Procedure for non-significant two-way interaction

All pairwise differences were statistically significant (p < 0.05).

## Three-Way ANOVA

Load the data and inspect one random row by group combinations:

Compute the mean and the standard deviation (SD) of pain_score by groups:

Outliers can be due to: 1) data entry errors, 2) measurement errors or 3) unusual values.

Create QQ plot for each cell of design:

If there is a significant three-way interaction effect , you can decompose it into:

- Simple two-way interaction : run two-way interaction at each level of third variable,
- Simple simple main effect : run one-way model at each level of second variable, and
- simple simple pairwise comparisons : run pairwise or other post-hoc comparisons if necessary.

In this section we’ll describe the procedure for a significant three-way interaction.

## Compute simple two-way interactions

## Compute simple simple main effects

## Compute simple simple comparisons

Compare the different treatments by gender and risk variables:

Residuals were normally distributed (p > 0.05) and there was homogeneity of variances (p > 0.05).

First, I LOVE your site – it is incredibly informative and easy to follow. Thanks!!

Thank you! It was very-very helpful!

I appreciate your positive feedback, thank you!

Hi, you have some errors in your code. It should look like as follow:

Thank you for your help; however, the message is still appearing with your code.

Great that it works! The issue should be something related with your R sessions.

Hello, thank you so much for this.

I have a simple question. What does “%>%” mean?

Take, for example, the following code chunk:

However, I can run the following format: PlantGrowth %>% group_by(group) %>% shapiro_test(weight)

Also, I could imagine the work around: running the shapiro_test() two times, one for each variable.

Is that appropriate or will that ignore the influence of one variable on each test?

Error: Input must be a vector, not a object.

Does anyone know how I can fix that?

Hi, thanks for a very helpful article. I have a question.

It always shows this error notification Error: Input must be a vector, not a object.

Do we not need to check if the data is balanced?

## What is one-way ANOVA test?

- Null hypothesis: the means of the different groups are the same
- Alternative hypothesis: At least one sample mean is not equal to the others.

Here we describe the requirement for ANOVA test . ANOVA test can be applied only when:

- The observations are obtained independently and randomly from the population defined by the factor levels
- The data of each factor level are normally distributed.
- These normal populations have a common variance. ( Levene’s test can be used to check this.)

Assume that we have 3 groups (A, B, C) to compare:

- Compute the common variance, which is called variance within samples ( \(S^2_{within}\) ) or residual variance .
- Compute the mean of each group
- Compute the variance between sample means ( \(S^2_{between}\) )
- Produce F-statistic as the ratio of \(S^2_{between}/S^2_{within}\) .

Note that, a lower ratio (ratio

## Visualize your data and compute one-way ANOVA in R

Prepare your data as specified here: Best practices for preparing your data set for R

Save your data in an external .txt tab or .csv files

Import your data into R as follow:

If the levels are not automatically in the correct order, re-order them as follow:

It’s possible to compute summary statistics (mean and sd) by groups using the dplyr package.

Install the latest version of ggpubr from GitHub as follow (recommended):

If you still want to use R base graphs, type the following scripts:

The output includes the columns F value and Pr(>F) corresponding to the p-value of the test.

## Multiple pairwise-comparison between the means of groups

The function TukeyHD () takes the fitted ANOVA as an argument.

- diff : difference between means of the two groups
- lwr , upr : the lower and the upper end point of the confidence interval at 95% (default)
- p adj : p-value after adjustment for the multiple comparisons.

- model : a fitted model, for example an object returned by aov ().
- lincft (): a specification of the linear hypotheses to be tested. Multiple comparisons in ANOVA models are specified by objects returned from the function mcp ().

Use glht() to perform multiple pairwise-comparisons for a one-way ANOVA:

## Check ANOVA assumptions: test validity?

The residuals versus fits plot can be used to check the homogeneity of variances.

It’s also possible to use Bartlett’s test or Levene’s test to check the homogeneity of variances .

- ANOVA test with no assumption of equal variances
- Pairwise t-tests with no assumption of equal variances

As all the points fall approximately along this reference line, we can assume normality.

- Import your data from a .txt tab file: my_data . Here, we used my_data .
- Visualize your data: ggpubr::ggboxplot(my_data, x = “group”, y = “weight”, color = “group”)
- Compute one-way ANOVA test: summary(aov(weight ~ group, data = my_data))

## The Complete Guide: How to Report Regression Results

We can use the following general format to report the results of a simple linear regression model :

Simple linear regression was used to test if [predictor variable] significantly predicted [response variable]. The fitted regression model was: [fitted regression equation] The overall regression was statistically significant (R 2 = [R 2 value], F(df regression, df residual) = [F-value], p = [p-value]). It was found that [predictor variable] significantly predicted [response variable] (β = [β-value], p = [p-value]).

And we can use the following format to report the results of a multiple linear regression model :

Multiple linear regression was used to test if [predictor variable 1], [predictor variable 2], … significantly predicted [response variable]. The fitted regression model was: [fitted regression equation] The overall regression was statistically significant (R 2 = [R 2 value], F(df regression, df residual) = [F-value], p = [p-value]). It was found that [predictor variable 1] significantly predicted [response variable] (β = [β-value], p = [p-value]). It was found that [predictor variable 2] did not significantly predict [response variable] (β = [β-value], p = [p-value]).

## Example: Reporting Results of Simple Linear Regression

The following screenshot shows the output of the regression model:

Here is how to report the results of the model:

Simple linear regression was used to test if hours studied significantly predicted exam score. The fitted regression model was: Exam score = 67.1617 + 5.2503*(hours studied). The overall regression was statistically significant (R 2 = .73, F(1, 18) = 47.99, p < .000). It was found that hours studied significantly predicted exam score (β = 5.2503, p < .000).

## Example: Reporting Results of Multiple Linear Regression

Multiple linear regression was used to test if hours studied and prep exams taken significantly predicted exam score. The fitted regression model was: Exam Score = 67.67 + 5.56*(hours studied) – 0.60*(prep exams taken) The overall regression was statistically significant (R 2 = 0.73, F(2, 17) = 23.46, p = < .000). It was found that hours studied significantly predicted exam score (β = 5.56, p = < .000). It was found that prep exams taken did not significantly predict exam score (β = -0.60, p = 0.52).

Charlotte, it depends on publication norm you use. For example, I use APA norms (American Psychological Association) and they recommend to report anova in this format: F (2, 60914) = 128.54, p < .001. Note that first degrees of freedom are the difference of d.f. between your model and its submodel. - Daniel Dostal Feb 26, 2021 at 9:58
