Re: [R] Two-way non-parametric ANOVA?

Hi Diana,

Look at Edgar Brunner's Homepage

and here:

Unfortunately, the R script for a 2x2 design with two groups and two timepoints (f1.ld.f1.r) seems to be broken. Uncommenting the branch to the special case "case2x2" in the script should do well, and more than 2 groups or timepoints seem to be working, too.

The basic problem with non-parametric (i.e. ordinal) Anova with more than one factor is that the covariance matrix is not homoscedastic anymore after a rank transformation, and autoregressive or compound symmetry covariance structures are destroyed.

Best wishes,
