# power.anova.test

##### Power Calculations for Balanced One-Way Analysis of Variance Tests

Compute power of test or determine parameters to obtain target power.

- Keywords
- htest

##### Usage

```
power.anova.test(groups = NULL, n = NULL,
between.var = NULL, within.var = NULL,
sig.level = 0.05, power = NULL)
```

##### Arguments

- groups
Number of groups

- n
Number of observations (per group)

- between.var
Between group variance

- within.var
Within group variance

- sig.level
Significance level (Type I error probability)

- power
Power of test (1 minus Type II error probability)

##### Details

Exactly one of the parameters `groups`

, `n`

, `between.var`

,
`power`

, `within.var`

, and `sig.level`

must be passed as NULL,
and that parameter is determined from the others. Notice that
`sig.level`

has non-NULL default so NULL must be explicitly
passed if you want it computed.

##### Value

Object of class `"power.htest"`

, a list of the arguments
(including the computed one) augmented with `method`

and
`note`

elements.

##### Note

`uniroot`

is used to solve power equation for unknowns, so
you may see errors from it, notably about inability to bracket the
root when invalid arguments are given.

##### Examples

`library(stats)`

```
# NOT RUN {
power.anova.test(groups = 4, n = 5, between.var = 1, within.var = 3)
# Power = 0.3535594
power.anova.test(groups = 4, between.var = 1, within.var = 3,
power = .80)
# n = 11.92613
## Assume we have prior knowledge of the group means:
groupmeans <- c(120, 130, 140, 150)
power.anova.test(groups = length(groupmeans),
between.var = var(groupmeans),
within.var = 500, power = .90) # n = 15.18834
# }
```
