9.4 Using a large alpha-to-enter value allows more variables into the model resulting in a better fit, however we must be carefull here with overfitting. Using a smaller alpha- to-enter value would prevent overfitting and selecting too many predictor variables resulting in an overly complicated model. The role of the analyst is in finding a sensible balance depending on the specific case he or she is dealing with.

Unformatted text preview: 9.5 If the alpha-to-enter value exceeds the alpha-to-remove value we may end up with a situation where some variables keep getting added into the model (because their p-value is less than the alpha-to-enter value) and are later removed (because their p-value, recalculated with respect to the rest of the variables currently in the model, exceeds the alpha-to-remove value)....

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
