1. What is the difference between R2 and adjusted R2?

R2 is a statistic that will give some information about the goodness of fit of a model. In regression, the R2 coefficient of determination is a statistical measure of how well the regression line approximates the real data points. An R2 of 1.0 indicates that the regression line perfectly fits the data. Adjusted R2 is a modification of R2 that adjusts for the number of explanatory terms in a model. Unlike R2, the adjusted R2 increases only if the new term improves the model more than would be expected by chance. The adjusted R2 can be negative, and will always be less than or equal to R2. Adjusted R2 does not have the same interpretation as R2. As such, care must be taken in interpreting and reporting this statistic. Adjusted R2 is particularly useful in the Feature selection stage of model building. Adjusted R2 is not always better than R2: adjusted R2 will be more useful only if the R2 is calculated based on a sample, not the entire population. For example, if our unit of analysis is a state, and we have data for all counties, then adjusted R2 will not yield any more useful information than R2.

2. How does testing the significance of the entire multiple regression models differ from testing the contribution of each independent variable?

When testing the significance of the entire multiple regression, we are testing the jointly affect of the regressors (predictors) all together. On the other hand, when testing the contribution of each independent variable, we are testing the affect of that specific variable on the dependent variable.

3. Why and how do you use dummy variables?

The use of dummy variables allows you to include categorical independent variables as

part of the regression model. If a given categorical independent variable has two categories, then you need only one dummy variable to represent the two categories.

...profit for each store is about $32,554 and the standard deviation is $11,580; this would imply that the difference in profit between the stores profit is quite large. Figure 1 above illustrates the store’s profit in a graph. It seems like there are two different clusters of data a cluster of stores with lower profit between $20,000 and $25,000 and another cluster of stores at the higher end between $40,000 - $45,000. This is confirmed...

...course of Child Development, and reading the chapter 5 about prenatal development, birth and new born, I have realized that it is very important in relationship between mother and child at the mom's pregnant time. Well, for mom's unborn child, this isn't just a funny saying; it's a reality. Why it is very important in relationship between mom and unborn child? For an unborn child is connected to its mother both physically and emotionally. During this period, the...

...What is the DifferenceBetween NTFS and FAT 32 File Systems
Today we will tell you about the differencesbetween FAT32 and NTFS file systems used by Windows
operating systems. This information may help you in choosing the right system as per your
requirements.
Basic Definition
FAT stands for File Allocation Table and FAT32 is an extension which means that data is stored in
chunks of 32 bits. These is an older type of file...

...What is the differencebetween forecasting and budgeting? Give examples.
Budgeting is the process of organizing ones existing income and expenses for the purpose of projecting your financial base values out into the future. The process of budgeting itself, though, is primarily an organizational process. While forecasting is the actual projection of ones values out into the future with an expected, but not a guaranteed result. One must have both the...

What is the differencebetween an element and a compound?
An element is an isotope made of the number of neutrons it has. A compound is a substance
made of two or more different elements (a mixture).
2. What is the periodic table?
A periodic table is where the chemical elements are organized based on their atomic number
(number of protons in the nucleus), electron arrangement, and chemical properties.

What is the differencebetween WAV and MP3?
WAV is sound digitally sampled at a fixed rate and word size, e.g. 44 kHz 16-bit. The higher the sampling rate, the better high notes like cymbals will be reproduced. The highest frequency that can be encoded is half the sampling frequency.
MP3 is a lossy compression format that can get up to 20x compression compared to WAV. The bitrate can be variable or fixed. Unless a low quality compression...
