# Understanding the Anova (car package) output in r

I am running a two-way anova test using Anova from car package. My data looks like this:

> head(x)
Type Bin Score
1    0  SI 2.120
2    0   R 2.246
3    0   R 2.246
4    0   R 2.511
5    0   R 2.420
6    0   R 2.270

> summary(x)
Type    Bin           Score
0:906   I :  68   Min.   :1.202
1:258   R :1570   1st Qu.:2.000
2:346   SI: 328   Median :2.280
3:436             Mean   :2.299
4: 20             3rd Qu.:2.622
Max.   :3.233

> lapply(x,class)
$Type  "factor"$Bin
 "factor"

$Score  "numeric"  With an unbalanced design as follows: > table(x$Type,x\$Bin)

I   R  SI
0  42 702 162
1   6 190  62
2   2 296  48
3  18 362  56
4   0  20   0


So I after much research, I ended up using Anova from car package with Type III SS method. Here is how I am conducting the test:

> Anova(lm(Score ~ Bin * Type, data=x, contrasts=list(Bin=contr.sum, Type=contr.sum)),singular.ok = TRUE, type=3)


With results as follows:

Note: model has aliased coefficients
sums of squares computed by model comparison

Anova Table (Type III tests)

Response: Score
Sum Sq   Df F values   Pr(>F)
Bin         0.000    0
Type        2.081    3   4.3875 0.004381 **
Bin:Type    5.494    6   5.7927 5.42e-06 ***
Residuals 308.700 1953
---
Signif. codes:  0 ‘***’ 0.001 ‘**’ 0.01 ‘*’ 0.05 ‘.’ 0.1 ‘ ’ 1


Can someone please help me understand:

1) This particular line from the results? Why might the SS and DF be zero for Bin?

           Sum Sq   Df F values   Pr(>F)
Bin         0.000    0


2) How this particular model still has aliased coefficients if Bin is not even being included in the final result?

Note: model has aliased coefficients
sums of squares computed by model comparison


3) Is there a better way to conduct this test in R?
