Bartlett-Box F test

Quick Reference

In statistics, a test that several groups come from populations with the same variance. For sufficiently large sample sizes, a non-significant probability allows a researcher to reject the hypothesis that the variances differ. The test assumes that the observations come from normal distributions. [Named after the English statisticians Maurice Stevenson Bartlett (1910–2002) and George Edward Pelham Box (born 1919) and the F statistic that it uses]
