To study the MultiSearch problem and complete the Ad Hoc Task of the 2006 TREC Terabyte Track, the Gov2 collection was divided according to web domain and for each topic, the results from each domain were merged into single ranked list. The mean average precision scores of the results from two different merge algorithms applied to the domain-divided Gov2 collection and a randomized domain-divided collection are compared with a 2-way analysis of variance.
