Abstract

This dataset example introduces researchers to one-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). One-way ANOVA allows researchers to test the differences between means for a particular variable across two or more groups. This example uses a subset of data from the 2015 Fuel Consumption Report from Natural Resources Canada. It presents an analysis of whether city fuel consumption for an automobile varies across types of fuel. Understanding how fuel type affects fuel consumption is important for setting transportation, environmental, and climate policy.

In this example, readers are shown how to compute and interpret a one-way ANOVA. The sample dataset has been cleaned and organized to make this example easier to follow. Interested readers should read the full documentation for the dataset before using it for research (http://open.canada.ca/data/en/dataset/98f1a129-f628-4ce4-b24d-6f16bf24dd64).
