Correlations and Betas In multiple regression, a significant correlation does NOT mean the regression coefficient will be significant The correlation is between Y and X ONLY The coefficient is adjusted for the other X’s in the regression equation.

Coefficients as Weights Coefficients represent the “weight” each predictor brings to the prediction, controlling for the other predictors

You can meaningfully compare the Beta’s ( β ’s) because they are standardized. Which beta has the most “weight”?

Error Unstandardized Coefficients Beta Standardized Coefficients t Sig. Dependent Variable: GPA a. Important! You CAN meaningfully compare the p-values for the coefficients. Are any of the coefficients statistically significant? Do any of the variables add to the prediction ABOVE what the other variables add?

Proportion of variance accounted for GPA SAT Study Habits The space in this circle represents variance of SAT’s. SAT’s vary across people. The space in this circle represents variance of GPA’s. GPA’s vary across people. Some of the variance in GPA’s can be accounted for by the variance in SAT’s. The space in this circle represents variance of Study Habits. Study Habits vary across people.
