Figure 6.20 Example of Means Comparisons Report for With Best, Hsu MCB

The Comparison with Max and Min report compares the mean of each level to the maximum and the minimum of the means of the remaining levels. For example, the mean for age 15 differs significantly from the maximum of the means of the remaining levels. The mean for age 17 differs significantly from the minimum of the means of the remaining levels. The maximum mean could occur for age 16 or age 17, because neither mean differs significantly from the maximum mean. By the same reasoning, the minimum mean could correspond to any of the ages other than age 17.
