# Statistics - (No Predictor|Mean|Null) Model

The simplest prediction in a regression that you can imagine is:

• using the mean of the target ($\bar{Y}$ ) as prediction
• ie choosing a slope of 0

The mean model is also known as the “No Model”.

With this model, the error RSS is equal to TSS.

The null model has no predictors. It just contains one intercept where the intercept is the mean of Y.

SS or TSS is the sum of the square deviation scores from the mean for one variable. It's the error calculation of the no predictor model (The basis model). Statistics - (Univariate|Simple|Basic) Linear Regression

The most direct approach in order to generate a set of model for the feature selection approach is called all subsets or best subsets regression. We compute the least squares t for all possible subsets... Statistics - Forward and Backward Stepwise (Selection|Regression)
