Welch ANOVA Test for Unequal Variances.

| Watch this File

File Information
Description

The ANOVA F-test to compare the means of k normally distributed populations is not applicable when the variances are unknown, and not known to be equal. A spacial case, k=2, is the famous Behrens-Fisher problem (Behrens, 1929; Fisher, 1935). Welch (1951) test was proposed to fill this void, a generalization to his 1947 previous paper (Welch, 1947).

Syntax: function welchanova(x,alpha)

Inputs:
x – data nx2 matrix (Col 1 = data; Col 2 = sample code)
alpha - significance level (default=0.05)

Outputs:
- Summary statistics from the samples
- Decision on the null-hypothesis tested

Required Products Statistics Toolbox
MATLAB release MATLAB 7.10 (R2010a)

Hello
I had used your code of Levene test :)
and I found that samples have not an homogenious variance so I can not use ANOVA.
So I would like to know instead of ANOVA if we can use Welch ANOVA since the distribution not normal?
Thank you
