Statistics - Levene's test (Homogeneity variance test)

Card Puncher Data Processing


A Levene's test is essentially like a t-test but instead of comparing means it's comparing variances.

If the test is significant, the homogeneity variance assumption is violated but we have a significant difference in variances. It's an effect.

What if homogeneity variance is violated

Welch's procedure

ie adjusting the degrees of freedom and the p value.

The goal of this procedure is to protect ourselves against this increased probability of type one error that's often associated with violations of homogeneity variance.

A dependent t-test is appropriate when you want to compare two independent samples. (two completely different groups of entities). For examples: if we want to compare one condition to another as men...
