The table below lists key differences between the methods, depending on your analysis requirements:
Effect Estimates
Morris Analysis
Sobol Analysis
Applicable for polynomial regression proxy
Applicable for neural network proxy n/a
Indicate effects in terms of absolute values n/a n/a
Indicate negative/positive effects n/a n/a
Indicate effects in terms of absolute mean and standard deviation n/a n/a
Indicate effects in terms of percentage of variance n/a n/a
Aggregate all effects (linear, non-linear, interaction) into one indicator n/a n/a
