Bias, precision and statistical power of analysis of covariance in the analysis of randomized trials with baseline imbalance: a simulation study
Author affiliations Abstract Analysis of variance (ANOVA), change-score analysis (CSA) and analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) respond differently to baseline imbalance in randomized controlled trials. However, no empirical studies appear to have quantified the differential bias and precision of estimates derived from these methods of analysis, and their relative statistical power, in relation to combinations of levels of key trial characteristics. This simulation study therefore examined the relative bias, precision and statistical power of these three analyses using simulated trial data.

You can also postdate the check. but that doesn't always work the way you think it will. On the line that says "Pay to the order of", you'll write the payee's name. You may have to ask "Who do I make the check out to?" if you're not sure what to write in that line. The person (or business) that you name on this line is the only one authorized to cash or deposit the check.
