Testing random effects in linear mixed models: another look at the F-test (with discussion)

Hui, Francis; Muller, Samuel; Welsh, Alan


This article re‐examines the F‐test based on linear combinations of the responses, or FLC test, for testing random effects in linear mixed models. In current statistical practice, the FLC test is underused and we argue that it should be reconsidered as a valuable method for use with linear mixed models. We present a new, more general derivation of the FLC test which applies to a broad class of linear mixed models where the random effects can be correlated. We highlight three advantages of the...[Show more]
