question re design file format

I’m about to start a fairly large analysis and I was wondering if the design file can include discrete as well as continuous data, e.g.:

group sex age height
F11Fcs F 21 61.2
F12Fcs F 28 77.9
F13Fcs F 50 77.2

Thanks for any advice!

Yeah that should be fine - we typically think of that more as a metadata file, but you should be good to use that for things like corr.axes. Note that it will not work for things like amova since amova expects the metadata to be categorical, not numerical.


Thanks, Pat! :slight_smile:
