## ANOVA using geometric mean

Hello,

I am trying to replicate the analysis done in this paper, Table 2 and Table 3.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5332180/pdf/EHP27.pdf

They did an ANOVA of geometric means. I can generate geometric means using proc surveymeans and I'm familiar with proc anova, but I have not done an ANOVA of geometric means. Can anyone point me in the right direction.

Thanks you,

James

## Re: ANOVA using geometric mean

Usually it means doing an ANOVA on log-transformed dependent variables. Exp(mean(log(x))) = geomean(x). Thus, if you exponentiate the estimated means on the log scale, you get the geometric means.

Do you know the sas code to do this?
