ANOVA—Fixed and Random Effects We will review the analysis of variance (ANOVA) and then move to random and fixed effects models Nested models are used to look at levels of variability (days within subjects, replicate measurements within days) Crossed models are often used when there are both fixed and random effects. April 2, 2013SPH 247 Statistical Analysis of Laboratory Data2

The Basic Idea The analysis of variance is a way of testing whether observed differences between groups are too large to be explained by chance variation One-way ANOVA is used when there are k ≥ 2 groups for one factor, and no other quantitative variable or classification factor.

It contains data on red cell folate levels in patients receiving three different methods of ventilation during anesthesia. Format: This data frame contains the following columns: folate: a numeric vector. Folate concentration (μg/l). ventilation: a factor with levels: 'N2O+O2,24h': 50% nitrous oxide and 50% oxygen, continuously for 24~hours; 'N2O+O2,op': 50% nitrous oxide and 50% oxygen, only during operation; 'O2,24h': no nitrous oxide, but 35-50% oxygen for 24~hours.

Two- and Multi-way ANOVA If there is more than one factor, the sum of squares can be decomposed according to each factor, and possibly according to interactions One can also have factors and quantitative variables in the same model (cf. analysis of covariance) All have similar interpretations April 2, 2013SPH 247 Statistical Analysis of Laboratory Data14

Fixed and Random Effects A fixed effect is a factor that can be duplicated (dosage of a drug) A random effect is one that cannot be duplicated Patient/subject Repeated measurement There can be important differences in the analysis of data with random effects The error term is always a random effect April 2, 2013SPH 247 Statistical Analysis of Laboratory Data21

Fasting Blood Glucose Part of a larger study that also examined glucose tolerance during pregnancy Here we have 53 subjects with 6 tests each at intervals of at least a year The response is glucose as mg/100mL April 2, 2013SPH 247 Statistical Analysis of Laboratory Data27

Nested Random Effects Models Cooperative trial with 6 laboratories, one analyte (7 in the full data set), 3 batches per lab (a month apart), and 2 replicates per batch Estimate the variance components due to labs, batches, and replicates Test for significance if possible Effects are lab, batch-in-lab, and error April 2, 2013SPH 247 Statistical Analysis of Laboratory Data29

Hypothesis Tests When data are balanced, one can compute expected mean squares, and many times can compute a valid F test. In more complex cases, or when data are unbalanced, this is more difficult One requirement for certain hypothesis tests to be valid is that the null hypothesis value is not on the edge of the possible values For H 0 : α = 0, we have that α could be either positive or negative For H 0 : σ 2 = 0, negative variances are not possible April 2, 2013SPH 247 Statistical Analysis of Laboratory Data34

These are CV’s on the average of 21% and 16% respectively The variance among values from different labs is about 0.0285, with a standard deviation of 0.1688 and a CV of about 33%

More complex models When data are balanced and the expected mean squares can be computed, this is a valid way for testing and estimation Programs like lme and lmer in R and Proc Mixed in SAS can handle complex models But most likely this is a time when you may need to consult an expert April 2, 2013SPH 247 Statistical Analysis of Laboratory Data36
