Statistics - Degree of freedom (df)

Thomas Bayes


Generally, the degrees of freedom is always the number of terms that go into the formula minus one (The intercept).

The degrees of freedom is therefore the number of predictors that have a non-zero coefficients in the model.

The variance shows how widespread the individuals are from the average. The variance is how much that the estimate varies around its average. It's a measure of consistency. A very large variance means...

A Levene's test is essentially like a t-test but instead of comparing means it's comparing variances. If the test is significant, the homogeneity variance assumption is violated but we have a significant...

Multiple regression is a regression with multiple predictors. It extends the simple model. You can have many predictor as you want. The power of multiple regression (with multiple predictor) is to better...
Natural Cubic Spline
Statistics - Natural (Cubic) Spline

A natural cubic spline is a cubic spline where two extra constraints have been added at the boundaries (on each end). The goal of this constraints is to avoid as for global cubic polynomial that the tail...

Statistics - t-distributions

The t-distributions are used to calculate the p-value (basically you look it up in a table, nowadays software will compute it). It's basically a normal random variable except for small numbers of samples....
