    How to interpret the intercept in a regression model which has a categorical covariate?

    I have a regression model with some response Y and covariates height, weight, age, sex. Sex is the only categorical covariate and it takes on the value Sex = 0, for female Sex = 1, for male I want to interpret the intercept of this model, that is the estimated mean value of Y when all the...

    How to choose between two regression models when one has a higher adjusted R^2 and the other has a lower BIC?

    I have two regression models with different number of covariates/predictors. After performing a subset selection, the remaining two choices are Model 1, which has 7 covariates and a lower BIC. Model 2, which has 11 covariates and a higher adjusted R^2. Using the BIC criteria, you select the...

    Replacing regressor instead of 2SLS

    Hi, can someone explain me why it is usual to run a 2SLS if we are not "satisfied" with one variable and using an instrumental variable to adjust the model? (I am just talking about the just-identified case) Wouldn't it be easier just to replace the variable with the new one, so we have a new...

    Interpretation of interaction terms in a multiple linear regression

    I try to improve my statistical knowledge and right now I am working on a regression that contains interaction terms. I am currently investigating the effects of different variables (a1, a2 etc.) on the quantity of chairs sold in a transaction (dependent variable). To see if effects are...

    IVs and moderator variables correlate in three-way interaction - problematic?

    Hi everybody, let's assume I hypothesize: H1: A direct effect of X1 on Y H2: A direct effect of X2 on Y H3: A two-way interaction between X1 and X2 H4: A three-way interaction between X1, X2 and X3 H5: A three-way interaction between X1, X2 and X4 and run the following OLS regressions to test...

    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...

    What model should I use?

    I have a longitudinal survey (5 waves) that collects a health index (from 0 to 100) and some risk factors and socioeconomic characteristics. I want to develop a model that will predict this health index (with consistent biographies, meaning that the predicted health index should not be...

    Looking for the best way to use my available data in a predictive model

    I have several pieces of data available, but I'm not sure about the best use of it in a predictive model. I envision using a regression, then plugging the predicted values into a monte carlo simulation for optimization. I'm wondering how an experienced statistician would use the available data...

    One predictor overshadows all other?

    Hi everyone! I was wondering, how do I deal with a predictor that overshadows all others? All predictors included in the model are statistically significant, but one of the has a very strong impact on the dependent variables, so much that when its value is high, the impact of all other...

    Comparing categories of a independent variable in logistic regression

    Hello, I have a doubt about the ways of comparing categories in logistic regression. I have 200 subjects with a dependant variable (positive/negative) and I want to test them with an independent variable (IV) of 4 categories (age). I am going to use a logistic regression, but when I do that, I...
