Subject: Comparing intraclass correlations
Content-type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1
I want to compare intraclass correlations for a twin study. My measure is
the children's weight (in kg) for monozygotic twins (MZ) and for dyzygotic
twins (DZ). I want to test the difference between the 2 intraclass
H0 : ICC (MZ) = ICC (DZ)
HA: not equal
Weights are measured independantly for twin no 1 and for twin no 2, among
the MZ and the DZ.
I did not find any formula to do it and no SAS program to do it. How can I
program this into SAS ?
