MANOVA
Posted: Sep 16, 2013 3:55 PM

Hi,

I have 4 set of data (a, b, c, d). Each set represent data from different type of diseases. Each set, has 4 independent variables and each variables has 10-15 observations; For instance here are two sets:

a = sl el st et
#1 .2 25 .15 24
#2 .3 22 .2 23
. . . . .
. . . . .
#10 .1 33 .3 25

b = sl el st et
#1 .1 24 .12 24
#2 .3 22 .2 23
. . . . .
. . . . .
#13 .1 31 .3 24

I would like to know, if by having these sets of data, I can differentiate different disease from each other. (For example, differentiate "a" type from "b", "c" and "d")

I have tried "k means" and "PCA" for one variable. however, I would like to use three or four variables in my comparison.

How can I specify the argument in Manova?
[d,p,stats]=manova1([a b c d],Model) ?
