Various replies gave strategic advice of the form: don't do that, do this instead. More concretely, the one Stata implementation of Friedman tests does not support interactions, and indeed I find it difficult to make sense of how such procedures, whatever their name, could provide a framework for handling interactions. The main idea of interactions would seem to be that effects can be multiplicative as well as additive, on the scale being used, but if you throw the scale away by ranking, I think you discard that idea too. If you believe that ranks provide a suitable metric, then -anova- on the ranks might be one way to proceed; my guess is that's unlikely to be the correct choice. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Ashley Harris What I have nonparametric data for 3 groups, 1 dependent variable (ratio) and 2 independent variables (technique and analysis type). The questions I want to test are: does the technique matter with respect to the ratio result?, does the analysis type matter with respect to the ratio result? is there a difference between the groups? If so what are these differences? However, there is the possibility of interactions, so I should test for that as well. I think I want to use a Friedman test, but cannot seem to figure out how to deal with interactions, and even more simplistically, I cannot seem to replicate the results for the sample that is in the help file (pasted below). Has any one had these problems too and is there a solution?
