DBC {AgroR} R Documentation

## Analysis: Randomized block design

### Description

This is a function of the AgroR package for statistical analysis of experiments conducted in a randomized block and balanced design with a factor considering the fixed model. The function presents the option to use non-parametric method or transform the dataset.

### Usage

DBC(
trat,
block,
response,
norm = "sw",
homog = "bt",
alpha.f = 0.05,
alpha.t = 0.05,
quali = TRUE,
mcomp = "tukey",
grau = 1,
transf = 1,
constant = 0,
test = "parametric",
geom = "bar",
theme = theme_classic(),
sup = NA,
CV = TRUE,
ylab = "response",
xlab = "",
textsize = 12,
labelsize = 4,
fill = "lightblue",
angle = 0,
family = "sans",
dec = 3,
errorbar = TRUE,
posi = "top",
point = "mean_sd",
angle.label = 0
)


### Arguments

 trat Numerical or complex vector with treatments block Numerical or complex vector with blocks response Numerical vector containing the response of the experiment. norm Error normality test (default is Shapiro-Wilk) homog Homogeneity test of variances (default is Bartlett) alpha.f Level of significance of the F test (default is 0.05) alpha.t Significance level of the multiple comparison test (default is 0.05) quali Defines whether the factor is quantitative or qualitative (default is qualitative) mcomp Multiple comparison test (Tukey (default), LSD, Scott-Knott and Duncan) grau Degree of polynomial in case of quantitative factor (default is 1) transf Applies data transformation (default is 1; for log consider 0; 'angular' for angular transformation) constant Add a constant for transformation (enter value) test "parametric" - Parametric test or "noparametric" - non-parametric test geom graph type (columns, boxes or segments) theme ggplot2 theme (default is theme_classic()) sup Number of units above the standard deviation or average bar on the graph CV Plotting the coefficient of variation and p-value of Anova (default is TRUE) ylab Variable response name (Accepts the expression() function) xlab Treatments name (Accepts the expression() function) textsize Font size labelsize Label size fill Defines chart color (to generate different colors for different treatments, define fill = "trat") angle x-axis scale text rotation family Font family dec Number of cells addmean Plot the average value on the graph (default is TRUE) errorbar Plot the standard deviation bar on the graph (In the case of a segment and column graph) - default is TRUE posi Legend position point Defines whether to plot mean ("mean"), mean with standard deviation ("mean_sd" - default) or mean with standard error (default - "mean_se"). angle.label label angle

### Value

The table of analysis of variance, the test of normality of errors (Shapiro-Wilk ("sw"), Lilliefors ("li"), Anderson-Darling ("ad"), Cramer-von Mises ("cvm"), Pearson ("pearson") and Shapiro-Francia ("sf")), the test of homogeneity of variances (Bartlett ("bt") or Levene ("levene")), the test of independence of Durbin-Watson errors, the test of multiple comparisons (Tukey ("tukey"), LSD ("lsd"), Scott-Knott ("sk") or Duncan ("duncan")) or adjustment of regression models up to grade 3 polynomial, in the case of quantitative treatments. Non-parametric analysis can be used by the Friedman test. The column, segment or box chart for qualitative treatments is also returned. The function also returns a standardized residual plot.

### Note

Enable ggplot2 package to change theme argument.

The ordering of the graph is according to the sequence in which the factor levels are arranged in the data sheet. The bars of the column and segment graphs are standard deviation.

CV and p-value of the graph indicate coefficient of variation and p-value of the F test of the analysis of variance.

In the final output when transformation (transf argument) is different from 1, the columns resp and respo in the mean test are returned, indicating transformed and non-transformed mean, respectively.
