model.tables {stats}R Documentation

Compute Tables of Results from an Aov Model Fit


Computes summary tables for model fits, especially complex aov fits.


model.tables(x, ...)

## S3 method for class 'aov':
model.tables(x, type = "effects", se = FALSE, cterms, ...)

## S3 method for class 'aovlist':
model.tables(x, type = "effects", se = FALSE, ...)


x a model object, usually produced by aov
type type of table: currently only "effects" and "means" are implemented.
se should standard errors be computed?
cterms A character vector giving the names of the terms for which tables should be computed. The default is all tables.
... further arguments passed to or from other methods.


For type = "effects" give tables of the coefficients for each term, optionally with standard errors.

For type = "means" give tables of the mean response for each combinations of levels of the factors in a term.


An object of class "tables.aov", as list which may contain components

tables A list of tables for each requested term.
n The replication information for each term.
se Standard error information.


The implementation is incomplete, and only the simpler cases have been tested thoroughly.

Weighted aov fits are not supported.
