...differs from that obtained from Stepwise and Backward Elimination Method. It is not hard to understand this phenomenon: Since for the Stepwise/Backward Elimination method, F-statistic plays an important role in selecting a variable: the F-statistic for a variable to be added must be significant at the SLENTRY level, the F-statistic for a variable to be removed must be significant at the SLSTAY level. While the MaxR method selects variables depending...
