Subject: MANOVA with small sample size and unequal ns
I've been asked to do one-way (3 levels) MANOVAs where the group sizes are n=25, n=7, and n=6; and, the number of dependent variables can range from 6 to 12. I've read somewhere that it is inappropriate to do MANOVA in this situation (small ns + unequal ns + large DV set relative to the ns). Does any know a reference addressing this problem?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
