    Constant not sig. in multiple regression - does it matter?

    I did a hierarchical multiple linear regression in SPSS with three predictor variables. All the variables have high F-values and are highly significant at each step of the model, but the constant is not significant (0.079) in the last step. Should I disregard all the results just because of...

    Which is the better prediction model?

    The aim is to predict the breakdown time of a machine as a percentage of scheduled hours for the next day. So my time series looks like this, Break_down_percentage = 7%, 8%, 10%, 6%, 12 % etc. There are 315 data points which can be used to test the different models. I used ets(), arima()...

    Drift Diffusion Model

    Hello I have RT-Accuracy data. I want to estimate the parameters of a drift diffusion model (Ratcliff, 1978). I am assuming that: v(t)=v(t-1) + v + e(0,s). meaning that at each giving time evidance is accumulated from a normal distribution with expected value v and noise s. I am very very new...
