Again this is a bit more strict (smaller) than the value computed by the Å Ã­dÃ¡k method above, which is 0.0051. If you perform three independent comparisons (with the null hypothesis actually true for each one), and use the conventional significance threshold of 5% for each comparison without correcting for multiple comparisons, what is the chance that one or more of those tests will be declared to be statistically significant? If you are making ten comparisons, and wish the significance threshold for the entire family of comparisons to be 0.05, then the threshold for each comparison is: alphaPC = 1.0  -  (1.0 - alphaFW)1/K = 1.0 - (1.0 - 0.05)0.10=  0.0051. The Within-Subjects Factors table reminds us of the groups of our independent variable (called a "within-subject factor" in SPSS Statistics) and labels the time points 1, 2 and 3. The first step for the Bonferroni and Sidak tests used as a followup to ANOVA is to compute the Fisher LSD test. The best way to approach that question, is to ask the opposite question -- what is the chance that all three comparisons will reach a conclusion that the differences are not statistically significant? Bonferroni correction is a conservative test that, although protects from Type I Error, is vulnerable to Type II errors (failing to reject the null hypothesis when you should in fact reject the null hypothesis) Alter the p value to a more stringent value, thus making it less likely to commit Type I Error The Bonferroni method simply multiplies the individual significance threshold (0.05) by the number of comparisons (3), so the answer is 0.15. This is not true – the column label is referring to fact that the dependent variabl… The chance that each test will be not significant is 0.95, so the chance that all three independent comparisons will be not statistically significant is 0.95*0.95*0.95, which equals 0.8574. First, divide the desired alpha-level by the number of comparisons. Statistical textbooks often present Bonferroni adjustment (or correction) in the following terms. <> How the Šídák multiple comparison test works The logic is simple (1). Note two important points: •The P values from this test are not corrected for multiple comparisons, so the correction for multiple comparisons is done as a second step. If the results your Chi Square Test of Independence are statistically significant, and if your predictor variable has more than 2 categories, you need to run additional tests to determine where the different patterns are in your data. �z�U���Q��`��e5)�`�� The Bonferroni method uses a simpler equation to answer the same questions as the Å Ã­dÃ¡k method. The logic is simple(1). �/]p* affect the calculation of the pooled SD so affect the P value for the comparison of A and B. Using a pooled SD makes sense if all the values are sampled from populations with the same SD, as use of the pooled SD gives the Bonferroni or Sidak test more degrees of freedom, and therefore more power. Note that this is a bit more strict than the result computed above for the Å Ã­dÃ¡k method, 0.0170. �l�z-1��|ϛ2G��?��c|�/��-�� ��֎ e8Xqxh���l�p.��q�٧��#��zP�Z4��M�DiV>��N��Ap�/8u���0���R ���-�[�Ȳ*�=��)��d ����\$0���I9���Z����d�������x�aɆ����Wg��{L8F %PDF-1.7 Navigation: STATISTICS WITH PRISM 9 > Multiple comparisons after ANOVA > How the various multiple comparisons methods work, How the Bonferroni and Sidak methods work.

Now switch back to the original question. (With many comparisons, the product of the significance threshold times the number of comparisons can exceed 1.0; in this case, the result is reported as 1.0.). Bonferroni Post Hoc Test 1. SPSS ANOVA Output - Levene’s Test Levene’s Test checks if the population variances of BDI for the four medicine groups are all equal, which is a requirement for ANOVA. The P values from this test are not corrected for multiple comparisons, so the correction for multiple comparisons is done as a second step. As a rule of thumb, we reject the null hypothesis if p (or “Sig.”) < 0.05.
