Abstract:

In many experimental situations the pertinent inferences are made on the basis of orthogonal contrasts among the treatment means as in 2 to the nth power factorial experiments. In this setting a particularly useful form of inference is one involving multiple comparisons. The present paper describes situations in which such inferences are meaningful, gives examples of their use, and provides an extensive set of tables of constants needed to implement such multiple comparison procedures. The procedures can also be used for statistically legitimate data snooping to help decide which contrasts within a specified set warrant further study.
