Dear all,
I ran a model in SAS, a linear model. My dependent variable is continuous and I had one important independent variable which is categorical, and a few covariates. I asked SAS to give me the LSMEANS for that independent variable (which has 3 levels).
I got a non significant F test, while one variable, the independent variable as it happens, was significant (see partial output attached, the deleted numbers are not important, all covariates are non significant).
To my knowledge, if at least one variable is significant, then the F test should be too. What am I missing here ?
Thank you !
