Analysis by SAS Interaction Plot by Excel
Three-Way ANOVA Analysis by SAS Interaction Plot by Excel

The Design Type of Crime: Burglary or Swindle
Culture of Defendant: American or Chinese Sex of Juror: Female or Male DV: Recommended length of sentence

Read in the Data Data JurySimulation;
Infile 'C:\Users\Vati\Documents\SimData\ANOVA3B-13.dat'; Input Culture \$ Crime \$ Sex \$ Sentence;

Omnibus Analysis Proc ANOVA; Class Sex Culture Crime;
Model Sentence = Sex|Culture|Crime; Means Sex|Culture|Crime; run;

Results & Follow-Up The triple interaction is significant
Conduct simple interaction analysis Test Culture x Crime for each sex I asked you to do the simple interaction analysis even if the triple interaction was not significant

Simple Interaction Effects
Proc Sort; By Sex; Proc ANOVA; Class Culture Crime; Model Sentence = Culture|Crime; By Sex; run;

Results & Follow-Up For each simple interaction that is significant, test the simple, simple main effects. Effect of type of crime at given levels of culture and sex. I asked you to do these tests regardless of whether or not the simple interaction was significant

Simple, Simple Main Effects
Proc Sort; By Sex Culture; Proc ANOVA; Class Crime; Model Sentence = Crime; By Sex Culture; run;

The Comparisons Made Compare length of sentence for burglars versus swindlers when Juror is female, defendant is American Juror is female, defendant is Chinese Juror is male, defendant is American Juror is male, defendant is Chinese

Prepare an Interaction Plot
Enter the appropriate means into Excel (2010) These are for the female jurors

Insert, Charts, Line

Select “Line With Markers”

Tweak the Vertical Axis

Gee Whiz

Enter Text in Title Box Then do the same for the Vertical Axis

Enter Chart Title

Other Tweaks Resize the chart Change fonts Remove or change grid lines
Et cetera Then copy the chart to Word, PowerPoint, or other application.

Prepare the Second Plot
We need a plot for the male jurors too. Enter the appropriate data into Excel. Tweak the plot so it has the same dimensions as the previous plot. If you do not, Excel may scale it in a way that distorts the differences between the two plots.
