Subject: Re: Stderror, Error Stdev, Residual error ???/ Are they same
Paul R. Swank,
Thanks for your explanation. The standard error and residual error are
fine but the term "error standard deviation" is quite confusing. I was
really interpreting that as the difference between the total standard
deviation minus the differences in main effects. Will check with that.
