Subject: Mixed Anova with a Dichotomous DV
I'm seeking an answer to the following:
My research design involves a mixed ANOVA with a 4 level Between-Subjects
variable and 3 level within-subjects variable.
I have a couple interval DVs that gave nice results, but I also have a
dichotmous DV that I would very much like to analyze with the same mixed
ANOVA design, and when I do I get the results I hypothesized.
I have Lunney's article from J.E.M. on using ANOVA with dichotomous DV,
but after looking for other examples I have seen almost no one saying it
can be done (due to the violations of the ANOVA assumptions).
My question is really: how defensible is using ANOVA with dichotomous DVs?
It looks like it's working properly and although it violated the
assumption of sphericity, when I examine the Greenhouse-Geisser adjustment
it remains significant (p=.02). Will I be on safe grounds if I simply
follow Lunney's suggestions?
