(proportion of variance explained) ▪ R squared is small if it does not explain it o Can look at direction or whether the variables move together (positive or negative) o Tells about strength and existence but not direction because it is always positive. o 0 to 1 Linear Regression: • Also called (ordinary) least squares method. • Every dot that is not on a line is an error in prediction • Least squares line = best fitting line = regression line • The distance between best fitting line and the dots are residuals. o Want to have fewest sums of squares errors. • has to have an independent variable predicting a dependent variable. • Predict dependent variable from independent variable • How much does dependent variable change when independent variable changes by 1 unit? • More than 3 variables. • Existence, direction, and sort of tells about strength but harder to interpret. • F distribution • What separates ANOVA and regression is l
