The formulas for this can be found in Kuehl's book on "Design of Experiments" (page 155). The example I am using here is from the manual [R] loneway (page 339, version 8). The approach is to first count the number of repetitions for each level of factor A, then compute the variance components, and lastly compute ICC. *----one random factor--------------* clear webuse auto7 keep if nummake==4 *---------------- local A="manufacturer_grp" local depvar="mpg" loneway `depvar' `A' table `A' local N=r(N) egen tag=tag(`A') egen sum=sum(tag) local n=`N'/sum[1] display `n' drop sum tag anova `depvar' `A' local MSA=e(mss)/e(df_m) display `MSA' local MSE=e(rss)/e(df_r) display `MSE' local sigA=(`MSA'-`MSE')/`n' local ICC=(`sigA')/(`sigA'+`MSE') display `ICC' *--------------------- You may notice I am assuming a balanced design. If the design is not balanced, then there are slightly more complicated formulas for the variance components (also given in Kuehl). OK, now for two random factors. For these formulas I must turn to the comprehensive experimental design text by Winer et. al. "Statistical Principles of Experimental Design" (page 413). The formula is what you would expect it to be: ICC=variance of A/(total variance). So again, we count the number of repetitions, and this time the number of levels of each factor, compute the variance components, and then ICC. This time I am going to generate my own balanced dataset. Again, if your design is not balanced, you just have to work harder to get the variance components (the formulas for this are in Winer). *----two random factors--------------* *--- generate balanced data clear set obs 36 generate A=int(_n/6+1) replace A=1 if A==7 table A bysort A: generate B=int(_n/2+1) replace B=1 if B==4 generate response=uniform() *---------------- local depvar="response" local A="A" local B="B" table `A' `B' local N=r(N) display `N' egen tag=tag(`A') egen sum=sum(tag) local p= sum[1] display `p' drop sum tag egen tag=tag(`B') egen sum=sum(tag) local q= sum[1] display `q' drop sum tag local n=`N'/(`p'*`q') display `n' anova `depvar' `A' `B' `A'*`B' test `A' local MSA=r(ss)/r(df) display `MSA' local MSE=r(rss)/r(df_r) display `MSE' test `B' local MSB=r(ss)/r(df) display `MSB' test `A'*`B' local MSAB=r(ss)/r(df) display `MSAB' local sigA=(`MSA'-`MSAB')/(`n'*`q') local sigB=(`MSB'-`MSAB')/(`n'*`p') local sigAB=(`MSAB'-`MSE')/`n' local ICC=(`sigA')/(`sigA'+`sigB'+`sigAB'+`MSE') display `ICC' *--------------------- Notice, we have to work a bit harder to get the mean squares for each of the factors this time, since they are not in the saved results after -anova-. But, that is where -test- comes in handy, because they are in the results after -test-.
