Multivariate Analysis of Variance

  • Lisa L. Harlow

Multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) allows an examination of potential mean differences between groups of one or more categorical independent variables (IVs), extending analysis of variance (ANOVA) to include several continuous dependent variables (DVs) (e.g., Grimm & Yarnold, 1995; Harlow, 2005; Maxwell & Delaney, 2004; Tabachnick & Fidell, 2013).
