Hi

I am performing an analysis of variance with two factors, each with two levels. I have differing numbers of observations in each of the four combinations, but all four combinations *are* present (2 of the factor combinations have 3 observations, 1 has 4 and 1 has 5)

So which should I use? Type I adjusted SS or Type III sequential SS? Minitab help tells me that I would "usually" want to use type III adjusted SS, as type I sequential "sums of squares can differ when your design is unbalanced" - which mine is. The R functions I am using are clearly using the type I sequential SS.

Any help would be very much appreciated!
