So the overall size is analyzed with parametric test while the lower is analyzed by using non-parametric tests. T-test (independent samples t-test) was conducted for groups of two variables in the overall size. Between more than two groups variables, single factor analysis (one-way anova) of variance is made to determine whether there is difference or not. Then post-hoc TUKEY HSD test which is used for variables with multiple factors was conducted to determine the significance of difference to the significant theme.
