    Loglinear model = Ising model?

    Is it true that an hierarchical log-linear model of order two which includes all the interactions of order two between the binary variables X1, . Xp is an Ising model? I saw this on a online documentation, but the subject is not developed. I find the Ising model pretty interesting, but a bit...

    Help with creating a model!?

    I want to create a model that assesses the effect of Drone usage (binary) in transporting medical samples to laboratories on Treatment Success (also binary). I was thinking: Dependent: TS = treatment success, so either successful or unsuccessful. Independent: TAT = turnaround time = the...

    Doubt on a model

    Hi everyone, for an universitary assignment, I have to model one dependent variable H based on two other independent variables, M and W; the model I have to fit to the data is this: E(H)=b0+b1*M+(W/(b3+b4*M)) do you have any clue on what kind of model this is and how can it be adapted in R?

    Calculating model (Analytically)

    Hi, can anyone help me out with this question? Assume that the true data generating process (the true model) is: y = 20 −30(x + r) + 4w + ê. Suppose that we also know that E(ê|x) = E(ê|w) = E(ê|r) = 0, Cov(x, w) = 20, Cov(x, r) = Cov(w, r) = 0, Var(x) = 10, Var(w) = 8 and Var(r) = 6. What...

    Which model/statistical test should I use?

    Hi, Soon I will be performing an experiment where I must grow 4 different plant species under 4 different stressors, each stressor containing 4 levels of 'severity' of the stressor or in other words a difference in concentration. Growth of the plants will be measured over 22 time points, but...

    model for an exponential function

    I am struggling with an exponential kind of function (it's stock market so not a function itself). It's the function of bitcoin basically. As you can see it's exponential-like increasing since 2011. Now I don't give this example for price prediction but for genuine interest...

    drawing up a mediation model with 2 predictors and 1 mediator

    Hello all, I was hoping someone could help my understand where a certain value comes from in my data output (using SPSS). I have performed a hierarchical multiple linear regression and the used PROCESS to find that my model has 2 predictor variables which both go through the 1 mediator variable...

    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...
