In this assignment, the relationship between the operating revenue of the construction companies in three countries (Denmark, Germany and Ukrain) and the three construction levels (A, B, and C) were investigate. The assignment contained two section. In section one, a one way Anova was conducted to investigate the difference in the mean among the three level of construction industry sector (A= construction of building, B= civil engineering, C=specialized construction) factors. In the second section, the two way analysis of variance ANCOVA was conducted to investigate the mean difference of the operating revenue of construction industry among the three countries and among the construction sectors. In performing the one way analysis of variance (ANOVA) one need one dependent variable which in this assignment was the operating revenue of the construction industry and one independent variable which is a category or factor variable which was the company independence factor.
The assignment had the following variables; dependent variable operating revenue of construction companies, and independent variables are, construction industry sector (A= construction of building, B= civil engineering, C=specialized construction) factor A, and the countries. The sample used in the assignment was 294. The countries used in the assignment for the data were Denmark, Germany and Ukraine). In the analysis of One way analysis of variance and two way analysis of variance, normality of data is assumed. The other assumption in one way analysis of variance and two way analysis of variance in the equality of variance and the last assumption is the linearity of independence with dependence variance. The data was obtained from the university database on ORBIS.
Results
2 (i) test of one way analysis of variance to determine if there is significant mead difference of the operating revenue among the level of construction industry sector ( A= construction of building, B= civil engineering, C=specialized construction)factors (A, B, C). In this section we shall conduct the test of homogeneity (equality of variance) using the levene test.
The levene test of homogeneity
Hypothesis 1
The null hypothesis: The variance of the residual are equal (homogeneous)
The alternative hypothesis: the variance of the residua are not equal

From the analysis, the levene statistic was equal to 13.305 with a p value equal 0.000 which was less than 0.05 significant level. This means that the assumption of homogeneity of the variance among the factors was violated. In the assignment we reject the hypothesis that the homogeneity of variance was not violated.
The test for the main effect
Hypothesis 1
The null hypothesis: The mean operating revenue of the construction companies were no significantly different among the three factor of construction industry sector (A= construction of building, B= civil engineering, C=specialized construction).
The alternative hypothesis: The mean operating revenue of the construction companies were significantly different among the three factor of construction industry sector (A= construction of building, B= civil engineering, C=specialized construction).
From the analysis of the main effect, it can be observed that the f value was equal to 4.515 with a pvalue= 0.012 which was less than 0.05 significant level. This means that there was sufficient evidence to conclude that mean operating revenue of construction companies are significantly difference among the construction industry sector ( A= construction of building, B= civil engineering, C=specialized construction) factor A ( all the three levels of companies independence). At 0.05 significant level, the sample used in the assignment supported the alternative hypothesis that the operating revenue of construction population means are significantly different among the three level of the company independence.

From the analysis, the levene statistic was equal to 4.831 with a p value equal 0.000 which was less than 0.05 significant level. This means that the assumption of homogeneity of the variance among the factors was violated. In the assignment we reject the hypothesis that the homogeneity of variance was not violated.
The test for the main effect
Hypothesis 1
The null hypothesis: There is no interaction effect between the construction industry sector ( A= construction of building, B= civil engineering, C=specialized construction)factor and the country factor B
The alternative hypothesis: There is interaction effect between the construction industry sector ( A= construction of building, B= civil engineering, C=specialized construction)factor and the country factor B
From the analysis of the two way ANOVA, it was observed that the interaction effect between the construction industry sector ( A= construction of building, B= civil engineering, C=specialized construction)factor and the country factor B had an F value of 0.531 with a p value of 0.731 which was greater than 0.05 significant level. This means that the sample had sufficient evidence that the interaction effect between the construction industry sector ( A= construction of building, B= civil engineering, C=specialized construction)factor and the country factor B were not significant
Hypothesis 2
The null hypothesis: The mean operating revenue of the construction companies were no significantly different among the three factor of construction industry sector (A= construction of building, B= civil engineering, C=specialized construction).
The alternative hypothesis: The mean operating revenue of the construction companies were significantly different among the three factor of construction industry sector (A= construction of building, B= civil engineering, C=specialized construction).
From the analysis of the mean operating revenue among difference levels of construction industry sector , it was observed that the F value was 4.582 with a p value = 0.011 which was less than 0.05 significant level. This means that there was sufficient evidence that the mean operating revenue was significantly mean operating revenue difference among different levels of the construction industry sector ( A= construction of building, B= civil engineering, C=specialized construction)factor. At 0.05 significant level the evidence indicate that the sample reject the null hypothesis that mean operating revenue of the construction companies were no significantly different among the three factor of construction industry sector ( A= construction of building, B= civil engineering, C=specialized construction).
Hypothesis 2
The null hypothesis: The mean operating revenue of the construction companies were no significantly different among the three countries
The alternative hypothesis: The mean operating revenue of the construction companies were significantly different among the three countries.
From the analysis of the mean operating revenue among difference countries, it was observed that the F value was 0.094 with a p value = 0.910 which was greater than 0.05 significant level. This means that there was sufficient evidence that the mean operating revenue was significantly mean operating revenue difference among different countries. At 0.05 significant level the evidence indicate that the sample reject the null hypothesis that mean operating revenue of the construction companies were no significantly different among the three counties.
