Subject: GLM Repeated with Categorical Covariates
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
A Friday question: I want to us ethnicity (4 levels) as a covariate in an
ANCOVA procedure. I think the code is correct, but since I've never worked
with a set, as covariate, I'm a little concerned. The Syntax Guide had
little to say on this issue (see GLM: Repeated Measures, 726-734).
COMPUTE Ethnic1 = 0.
COMPUTE Ethnic2 = 0.
COMPUTE Ethnic3 = 0.
DO IF (Ethnic EQ 1).
- COMPUTE Ethnic1 = 1.
ELSE IF (Ethnic EQ 2).
- COMPUTE Ethnic2 = 1.
ELSE IF (Ethnic EQ 3).
- COMPUTE Ethnic3 = 1.
pretest posttest BY group WITH ethnic1 ethnic2 ethnic3
/WSFACTOR = time 2
/METHOD = SSTYPE(3)
/EMMEANS = TABLES(group*time) WITH(ethnic1=MEAN ethnic2=MEAN ethnic3=MEAN)
/CRITERIA = ALPHA(.05)
/WSDESIGN = time
/DESIGN = ethnic1 ethnic2 ethnic3 group .
Any suggestions will be most welcome.
