The Unit of Analysis: Group Means versus Individual Observations.
Hopkins, Kenneth D.
American Educational Research Journal, v19 n1 p5-18 Spr 1982

When random factors are properly identified and included in the analysis, the results are identical in balanced analysis of variance designs, irrespective of whether group means or individual observations are employed.
