How do you analyze MANOVA?

Complete the following steps to interpret general MANOVA….

1. Step 1: Test the equality of means from all the responses.
2. Step 2: Determine which response means have the largest differences for each factor.
3. Step 3: Assess the differences between group means.
4. Step 4: Assess the univariate results to examine individual responses.

What is two-way MANOVA?

For example, a two-way MANOVA is a MANOVA analysis involving two factors (i.e., two independent variables). This means that the groups of each independent variable represent all the categories of the independent variable you are interested in.

### How do you test MANOVA normality?

A MANOVA assumes that the population covariance matrices of each group are equal. The most common way to check this assumption is to use Box’s M test. This test is known to be quite strict, so we usually use a significance level of . 001 to determine whether or not the population covariance matrices are equal.

How do you interpret MANOVA results?

Interpret the key results for General MANOVA

1. Step 1: Test the equality of means from all the responses.
2. Step 2: Determine which response means have the largest differences for each factor.
3. Step 3: Assess the differences between group means.
4. Step 4: Assess the univariate results to examine individual responses.

When should you use MANOVA?

MANOVA can be used when we are interested in more than one dependent variable. MANOVA is designed to look at several dependent variables (outcomes) simultaneously and so is a multivariate test, it has the power to detect whether groups differ along a combination of dimensions.

## What does a MANOVA test tell you?

MANOVA allows us to test hypotheses regarding the effect of one or more independent variables on two or more dependent variables. A MANOVA analysis generates a p-value that is used to determine whether or not the null hypothesis can be rejected.
