Relations: Functional vs. Statistical Functional relation expressed by a Statistical relation expressed by a mathematical formula: Y=f(X) formula: Y=f(X)+ε All observations fall directly on the In general, the observations for a line of functional relationship. statistical relation do not fall directly on the curve of relationship. Steps in Regression Analysis • • • • Statement of the problem Selection of potentially relevant variables Data collection (Retrospective study based on historical data, Observational study,Designed Experiment (the best!) Model specification (linear, nonlinear) The form of the function f(X1,X2,…,Xp ) can be linear or nonlinear! f linear : y = β0 + β1x1 + ε (Simple linear) f nonlinear : y = β0 + exp(β1 x1 + ε (Nonlinear) f linear : y = β0 + β1 logX + ε (Linearizable (re‐expressed or transformed)) f linear : y = β0 +β1X+β2X2+ ε (Linearizable (re‐expressed or transformed)) If the parameters enter the equation linearly (or nonlinearly) we call linear (or nonlinear).
