repeated measures
Repeated Measures
  • The term repeated measures refers to data sets with multiple measurements of a response variable on the same experimental unit or subject.
  • In repeated measurements designs, we are often concerned with two types of variability:
    • Between-subjects - Variability associated with different groups of subjects who are treated differently (equivalent to between groups effects in one-way ANOVA)
    • Within-subjects - Variability associated with measurements made on an individual subject.
  • Examples of Repeated Measures designs:
    • Two groups of subjects treated with different drugs for whom responses are measured at six-hour increments for 24 hours. Here, DRUG treatment is the between-subjects factor and TIME is the within-subjects factor.
    • Students in three different statistics classes (taught by different instructors) are given a test with five problems and scores on each problem are recorded separately. Here CLASS is a between-subjects factor and PROBLEM is a within-subjects factor.
    • Volunteer subjects from a linguistics class each listen to 12 sentences produced by 3 text to speech synthesis systems and rate the naturalness of each sentence. This is a completely within-subjects design with factors SENTENCE (1-12) and SYNTHESIZER.

Repeated Measures
  • When measures are made over time as in example A we want to assess:
    • how the dependent measure changes over time independent of treatment (i.e. the main effect of time)
    • how treatments differ independent of time (i.e., the main effect of treatment)
    • how treatment effects differ at different times (i.e. the treatment by time interaction).
  • Repeated measures require special treatment because:
    • Observations made on the same subject are not independent of each other.
    • Adjacent observations in time are likely to be more correlated than non-adjacent observations

  • Methods of repeated measures ANOVA
    • Univariate - Uses a single outcome measure.
    • Multivariate - Uses multiple outcome measures.
    • Mixed Model Analysis - One or more factors (other than subject) are random effects.
  • We will discuss only univariate approach

Repeated Measures
  • Assumptions:
    • Subjects are independent.
    • The repeated observations for each subject follows a multivariate normal distribution
    • The correlation between any pair of within subjects levels are equal. This assumption is known as sphericity.

Repeated Measures
  • Test for Sphericity:
    • Mauchley’s test
  • Violation of sphericity assumption leads to inflated F statistics and hence inflated type I error.
  • Three common Corrections for violation of sphericity:
    • Greenhouse-Geisser correction
    • Huynh-Feldt correction
    • Lower Bound Correction
  • All these three methods adjust the degrees of freedom using a correction factor called Epsilon.
  • Epsilon lies between 1/k-1 to 1, where k is the number of levels in the within subject factor.

  • Arrangement of the data can be done in MS-Excel. However the following R commands will arrange the data in default.csv for the ANOVA of repeated measures-


sid1<- c(sid,sid)


plc<- c(PLUC.pre,


  • The following code is for repeated measures ANOVA

summary(aov(plc~factor(grp1)*factor(time) + Error(factor(sid1))))

odds ratio
Odds Ratio
  • Statistical analysis of binary responses leads to a conclusion about two population proportions or probabilities.
  • The odds in favor of an event is the quantity p/1-p, where p is the probability (proportion) of the event.
  • The odds ratio of an event is the ratio of the odds of the event occurring in one group to the odds of it occurring in another group.
  • Let p1 be the probability of an event in one group and p2 be the probability of the same event in the other group. Then the odds ratio,

Odds Ratio
  • The odds ratio must be greater than or equal to zero. As the odds of the first group approaches zero, the odds ratio approaches zero. As the odds of the second group approaches zero, the odds ratio approaches positive infinity
  • An odds ratio of 1 indicates that the condition or event under study is equally likely in both groups.
  • An odds ratio greater than 1 indicates that the condition or event is more likely in the first group.
  • An odds ratio less than 1 indicates that the condition or event is less likely in the first group.
  • Log odds …

logistic regression
Logistic Regression
  • Consider a binary response variable Y with two outcomes (1 and 0). Let p be the proportion of the event with outcome 1.
  • The logit(p) can be defined as log of odds of the event with outcome 1. Then the logistic regression for the response variable Y on a set of explanatory variables X1, X2, …., Xr can be written as

logit(p) = log(p/1-p)= b0 +b1X1+ … +brXr

logistic regression1
Logistic Regression
  • From the model of logistic regression, the odds in favor of Y=1, (p/1-p), can be expressed interms of some r independent variables,

p/1-p = exp( b0 + b1X1 + +brXr )

  • If there is no influence of the explanatory variables (i.e. X1=0, … Xr =0), the odds in favor of Y=1, (p/1-p), is exp(b0).
  • If an independent variable (e. g. X1 in the model) is categorical with two categories, then exp(b1) implies the ratio of odds (in favor of Y=1) in two categories of the variable X1.
  • If an independent variable (e. g. X2 in the model) is numeric, then exp(b2) implies the change in odds (p/1-p) for 1 unit change in X2.
