ANOVA (Analysis of Variance)
ANOVA stands for Analysis Of Variance. ANOVA was founded by Ronald Fisher in the year 1918. The name Analysis Of Variance was derived based on the approach in which the method uses the variance to determine the means whether they are different or equal.
It is a statistical method used to test the differences between two or more means. It is used to test general differences rather than specific differences among means. It assesses the significance of one or more factors by comparing the response variable means at different factor levels.
