Square Lattice Design (Blocks)

Select menu: Stats | Analysis of Variance | General

The Square Lattice Design setting allows you to analyse data from experiments using a square lattice design in blocks.

  1. After you have imported your data, from the menu select 
    Stats | Analysis of Variance | General.
  2. From the Design dropdown list select Square lattice design (blocks).
  3. Fill in the fields as required then click Run.

You can set additional Options then after running, you can save the results by clicking Save.

Available data

This lists data structures appropriate to the current input field. It lists either factors for use in specifying the treatment structure, or variates for specifying the data and additional covariates. The contents will change as you move from one field to the next. Double-click a name to copy it to the current input field or type the name.


Can be used to switch to other types of design.


Set this to the variate containing the data values.


Specifies the factor defining the treatment terms.


Set this to a factor which specifies the replicates within the repeats of the basic design.


Specifies the factor defining the blocks within the replicates.

Units within blocks

Set this to a factor which specifies the units within the blocks

Name for pseudo-factor pointer

Specifies a pointer defining the pseudo-factors. If the pseudo-factor does not exist then Genstat will generate one using the name provided before running the analysis.


Select the check box if you want to perform analysis of covariance. The adjacent field will become enabled to let you supply a list of the covariates for the analysis. If there is more than one, you must separate their names with spaces or commas.
