Subject: SAS test for Equality of variances
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
In order to compare the variance of two independent distributions, the usual
is to assume that each distribution is normal and use an F test of the ratio
of the sample variances.
Does SAS have a procedure for testing the equality of variances when the
populations are not normal?
