### Simplifying the Matrix Form of the Solution to Ridge Regression

I'm trying to understand how to obtain the solution to an objective function by solving for the parameter vector $\theta$ in ridge regression. I found an example here from Naomi which takes an example ...

### What is the correct implementation of BIC with residual sum of squares?

BIC is most often calculated by maximizing the log likelihood function. However, it is also possible to calculate BIC with residual sums of squares. This is pretty easy to find online and not an issue ...

### Formula for type III sum of squares of the intercept term in linear multiple regression

assume we have the regression model: $$Y = b_0 + b_1 x_1 + \dots + b_k x_k + \varepsilon$$ I know the formulas for all type III sum of squares for the regression terms except the formula for SS of ...

### Sum of Squared Error Chi-Square distribution degree of freedom in Multilinear Regression

In this link it says that $Y$ variables has zero covariance (because covariance matrix has only diagonal terms) which implies they are independent. Actually in linear regression $Y$ takes its ...

### Why is regression line represented as $y = b0 + b1 * x$?

I am new to Data Science and ran into Regression Line formula which is $y = b0 + b1 *x$ (where x is dependent variable, y is predicted variable) I understood the meaning of this formula as a ...

### Better to Minimize Absolute Error or Sum of Squared Error?

I have an Excel model which predicts the number of customers for a given month. The prediction depends on a churn rate. I have the absolute error (actual vs predicted), along with squared error and ...

### Why error sum of squares has n-2 df (possibly not duplicate, please read on)? (Regression Question Series - Part 4)

In simple linear regression, the error sum of squares is given by $$\text{SSE} = \sum_{i=1}^n(y_i - \hat{y_i})^2 \\ \hat{\sigma}^2 = s^2 = \dfrac{\text{SSE}}{n-2}$$ where $n-2$ is the degrees of ...

### Minimize Logged Sum of Squares?

When numerically maximizing the likelihood function it is standard practice to do this indirectly by minimizing the negative log-likelihood. When numerically minimizing the residual sum of squares (...

### R: anova(lm): What is the Sum Sq when we have two inputs

What is the formula to calculate the Sum sq column for the inputs? Answers to some other questions state, that it should be $RSS = \sum (\hat Y_i -\bar Y)^2$, yet this is false, it only gives the ...

### Showing that $\sum_{i=1}^n (y_i-\hat{y_i})(\hat{y_i} - \bar{y}) = 0$ for the generalized linear model [closed]

Exercise : Prove that for the generalized linear model, it is : $$\sum_{i=1}^n (y_i-\hat{y_i})(\hat{y_i} - \bar{y}) = 0$$ Question : How would one proceed with proving that for the generalized ...

### Calculating F-statistic, why is SS used instead of just $r^2$?

The calculations and question are for a simple regression (one independent and one dependent variable). SSres = SSy * (1 - $r^2$) SSreg = SSy * $r^2$ F = (SSreg / DFreg)/(SSres / DFres) So, I've ...

### Understanding ANOVA as regression / type III SS in R

I'm confused about how type III SS are calculated for a "main effect". According to what I have read, Type III SS is calculated by evaluating the change in the SSE by removing only the variable in ...

### 2-way ANOVA in Python statsmodels yields different Sum of Squares than SPSS

I am learning to use Python for my statistical analyses, and while figuring out how to perform a 2-way ANOVA with statsmodels I found that my Python code yielded slightly aberrant values. Comparing ...

### What's the difference between the SS in the variance and the TSS?

I'm trying to understand how these two statistics differ. My understanding is the variance is the sum of squares of the predictor divided by the degrees of freedom. On the other hand, the sum of ...

### In regression, when partitioning SS among predictors, what determines which predictors get the SS that can be attributed to more than one predictor?

In regression analysis, predictors sometimes correlate (and in my field, psychology, they always do; often because they are simply measurements of the same aspects of human psychology). If predictors ...

### How should Type II SS be calculated in a mixed model?

I have a data set (and corresponding mixed model) which gets very different p-values for one of the two-way interactions when tested using Type I (sequential, taking care that it's last), and Type II (...

### Deriving the F-test from ${{SSE_R-SSE_F}\over{(n-q)-(n-p)}}/{{SSE_F}\over{n-p}}$

Given a Full and Reduced model, the F-test to see if the reduced model is significant is given by $${{SSE_R-SSE_F}\over{(n-q)-(n-p)}}/{{SSE_F}\over{n-p}}$$ I'm trying to understand how this is ...
