R^2 coefficient of determination and coefficient of correlation

For every model of relationship between y and x



If all the observations are on the model then r^2=1

Fortunately r turns out to be normalized covariance    🙂  




Adjusted R2 is

where p is the total number of regressors in the linear model (not counting the constant term), and n is the sample size.

Adjusted R2 can also be written as

\bar R^2 = {1-{SS_\text{res}/df_e \over SS_\text{tot}/df_t}}

where dft is the degrees of freedom n– 1 of the estimate of the population variance of the dependent variable, and dfe is the degrees of freedom np – 1 of the estimate of the underlying population error variance.

The principle behind the adjusted R2 statistic can be seen by rewriting the ordinary R2 as

R^{2} = {1-{\textit{VAR}_\text{err} \over \textit{VAR}_\text{tot}}}
