## What is Holm Sidak method?

The Holm-Sidak test is a step-down “recursive reject”, because it applies an accept/reject criterion on a sorted set of null hypothesis, starting from the lower p-value and going up to the acceptance of null hypothesis. For each comparison, the alpha value is set according to Sidak correction of Bonferroni inequality.

**What is Sidak post hoc test?**

Sidak . Pairwise multiple comparison test based on a t statistic. Sidak adjusts the significance level for multiple comparisons and provides tighter bounds than Bonferroni. Scheffe . Performs simultaneous joint pairwise comparisons for all possible pairwise combinations of means.

### What’s the difference between Bonferroni and Sidak?

The Bonferroni and Šídák methods can determine statistical significance, compute adjusted P value, and also compute confidence intervals. The Šídák method has a bit more power than the Bonferroni method. The Šídák method assumes that each comparison is independent of the others.

**Is Bonferroni or Sidak more conservative?**

Bonferroni is only marginally more conservative than Sidak.

#### How does Holm correction work?

In statistics, the Holm–Bonferroni method, also called the Holm method or Bonferroni–Holm method, is used to counteract the problem of multiple comparisons. It is intended to control the family-wise error rate and offers a simple test uniformly more powerful than the Bonferroni correction.

**What is a Sidak p value?**

Sidak-Class Method The Sidak method defines paj = 1 − (1 − pj)M, which is approximately equal to Mpj for small values of pj, resembling the Bonferroni method (Westfall & Young, 1993). Like the Bonferroni method, the Sidak method reduces Type I error in the presence of M hypothesis tests with independent outcomes.

## When should I use Howell Games?

Performs Games-Howell test, which is used to compare all possible combinations of group differences when the assumption of homogeneity of variances is violated. This post hoc test provides confidence intervals for the differences between group means and shows whether the differences are statistically significant.

**What is Sidak in statistics?**

In statistics, the Šidák correction, or Dunn–Šidák correction, is a method used to counteract the problem of multiple comparisons. It is a simple method to control the familywise error rate.

### What is a step down procedure?

The Holm step-down procedure is the easiest to understand. First, sort your thousand p-values from low to high. Multiply the smallest p-value by one thousand. If that adjusted p-value is less than 0.05, then that gene shows evidence of differential expression. That’s no different than the Bonferroni adjustment.

**How is Bonferroni calculated?**

The Bonferroni correction method formula The Bonferroni correction method is regarding as the simplest, yet most conservative, approach for controlling Type I error. To perform the correction, simply divide the original alpha level (most like set to 0.05) by the number of tests being performed.

#### What is benjamini Hochberg?

Definition. The Benjamini–Hochberg method controls the False Discovery Rate (FDR) using sequential modified Bonferroni correction for multiple hypothesis testing.

**What is Dunnett T3?**

Dunnett’s T3 . Pairwise comparison test based on the Studentized maximum modulus. This test is appropriate when the variances are unequal. Games-Howell . Pairwise comparison test that is sometimes liberal.

## Why use a Tukey post hoc test?

Tukey’s test compares the means of all treatments to the mean of every other treatment and is considered the best available method in cases when confidence intervals are desired or if sample sizes are unequal (Wikipedia).
