Any way to enter mean +sem and N in SPSS?

#1
Hi,

I want to enter a mean value with standard error into spss in order to carry out ANOVA. Is there any way to do this without the raw data?

Im not sure why you would do this. To run a reliable analysis, ANOVA would require all the values to calculate within and between group varaiation. Without this, I would be very sceptikal of your resulting F value.

because its a fitted value after a non linear regression of the raw data. the raw has no relationship to this value that i can enter into spss, it is not just a 'mean' of the data. it is calculated and optimised elsewhere as a point on the curve that fits the data.

ANOVA calculates the variation from the mean and sem from the data anyway and i see no real reason why i cant skip the step and enter it directly.
