The ANOVA Procedure |

The following statements are available in PROC ANOVA.

**PROC ANOVA**< options >**;****CLASS**variables**;****MODEL**dependents=effects < / options >**;****ABSORB**variables**;****BY**variables**;****FREQ**variable**;****MANOVA**< test-options >< / detail-options >**;****MEANS**effects < / options >**;****REPEATED**factor-specification < / options >**;****TEST**<**H=**effects >**E=**effect**;**

The PROC ANOVA, CLASS, and MODEL statements are required, and they must precede the first RUN statement. The CLASS statement must precede the MODEL statement. If you use the ABSORB, FREQ, or BY statement, it must precede the first RUN statement. The MANOVA, MEANS, REPEATED, and TEST statements must follow the MODEL statement, and they can be specified in any order. These four statements can also appear after the first RUN statement.

The following table summarizes the function of each statement (other than the PROC statement) in the ANOVA procedure:

Statement |
Description |

ABSORB | absorbs classification effects in a model |

BY | specifies variables to define subgroups for the analysis |

CLASS | declares classification variables |

FREQ | specifies a frequency variable |

MANOVA | performs a multivariate analysis of variance |

MEANS | computes and compares means |

MODEL | defines the model to be fit |

REPEATED | performs multivariate and univariate repeated measures analysis of variance |

TEST | constructs tests using the sums of squares for effects and the error term you specify |
