Table 6 ANCOVA and ANOVA results for comparison of cerebral haemodynamics parameters between geographical regions (stroke only)

From: Pooling data from different populations: should there be regional differences in cerebral haemodynamics?

  1. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) model included stroke aetiology and subtypes as covariates
  2. ANOVA analysis of variance, MS mean square, AH affected hemisphere, UH unaffected hemisphere, VLF, LF, HF Very low, low and high frequency ranges, respectively
  3. p-value for ANOVA (geographical interaction) and ANCOVA controlled for stroke aetiology and subtype
