See Regression for a description of how to generate the outputs described on this page and Regression Troubleshooting for a description of some common difficulties and their solutions.
p-Values by question
The first table of the output screen contains p-values for significance tests for all of the Independent questions. The word INCLUDED indicates the question is in the final model. EXCLUDED will appear if the question has been excluded by stepwise selection.
p-values of All Questions (Included and Excluded) p-Values INCLUDED Satisfaction with fees (linear) .000 INCLUDED Satisfaction with interest rates (linear) .000 INCLUDED Satisfaction with phone (linear) .000 INCLUDED Satisfaction with branch (linear) .000 INCLUDED Satisfaction with availability of ATMs (linear) .000 INCLUDED Satisfaction with online (categorical) .000
Goodness of fit statistics
The R-Squared and Adjusted R-Squared are computed in the traditional way for linear regression models. For the other models, McFadden’s Rho-squared is employed. The AIC, which appears for all the models except linear regression, can be used for comparing different models (all else being equal, a lower AIC indicates a better model).
Dependent question: Overall satisfaction (Linear) Standard error of the residuals (model): .14557 R-Squared: .458 Adjusted R-Squared: .453 Model p-value: .00000
The following table of coefficients is interpreted in the standard way (see any book on regression or an econometrics textbook; some are listed below).
