anova {stats}

Anova Tables
Package: 
stats
Version: 
R 3.0.2

Description

Compute analysis of variance (or deviance) tables for one or more fitted model objects.

Usage

anova(object, ...)

Arguments

object
an object containing the results returned by a model fitting function (e.g., lm or glm).
...
additional objects of the same type.

Values

This (generic) function returns an object of class anova. These objects represent analysis-of-variance and analysis-of-deviance tables. When given a single argument it produces a table which tests whether the model terms are significant.

When given a sequence of objects, anova tests the models against one another in the order specified.

The print method for anova objects prints tables in a ‘pretty’ form.

Warning

The comparison between two or more models will only be valid if they are fitted to the same dataset. This may be a problem if there are missing values and R's default of na.action = na.omit is used.
