Overview of Oneway Analysis
A one-way analysis of variance tests for differences between group means. The total variability in the response is partitioned into two parts: within-group variability and between-group variability. If the between-group variability is large relative to the within-group variability, then the differences between the group means are considered to be significant.
Example of Oneway Analysis
This example uses the Analgesics.jmp sample data table. Thirty-three subjects were administered three different types of analgesics (A, B, and C). The subjects were asked to rate their pain levels on a sliding scale. You want to find out if the means for A, B, and C are significantly different.
