How Do I Perform ANOM Binomial Proportions Two-Way in Excel Using SigmaXL?

  1. Open ANOM Examples.xlsx, click on the Length of Stay - Binomial Prop tab. This is hospital
    length of stay (LOS > 6 days) after bypass surgery. The data is from a factorial design with
    Factors: Drug (A, B) and Treatment (1, 2, 3). (Example 5.15 from the ANOM book used with
    author permission).


  2. Click SigmaXL > Graphical Tools > Analysis of Means (ANOM) > ANOM Binomial Proportions
    Two-Way. Ensure that the entire data table is selected. If not, check Use Entire Data Table.

  3. Click Next. Select LOS > 6 days, click Numeric Data Variable (Y) >>; select Sample Size, click
    Subgroup Column or Size >>; select Drug, click Group Category Factor (X1) >>; select
    Treatment, click Group Category Factor (X2) >>. Alpha Level = 0.05, Adjust chart alpha for
    family-wise error rate
    is unchecked:


  4. Click OK. The ANOM Binomial Proportions Two-Way Main Effects, Slice charts and Interaction
    plots are shown below:


  5. Since the Interaction P-Value is < 0.1 (automatically determined from Logistic regression), the
    Slice charts are highlighted. The Slice plot clearly shows the effect of the strong interaction.
    When Drug = A, Treatment 2 results in a significantly lower mean proportion LOS and
    Treatment 3 results in a significantly higher LOS. When Drug = B, the Treatment does not have
    a significant effect on LOS.
