Appendix F: variability in HoNOS scores at time of entry

Page last updated: 24 December 2012

Differences in the profile of HoNOS scores reported upon entry to the MHNIP for each of the case study sites was explored using a one-way analysis of variance. The resulting F-Statistic was 376 with 15/446 degrees of freedom, and a p-value of 0.000, indicating that there is overwhelming evidence of some differences between the mean HoNOS scores amongst the 15 case study sites. Table 8.6 below summarises the pair-wise comparisons where the mean HoNOS Score was considered significantly different according to Tukey's Honest Significant Difference (HSD) method.
