Chap 14-77 Leverage The leverage of a case measures its ability to move the regression model all by itself by just moving in the ydirection. For example, one high leverage case hid a strong relationship between the number of long guns found and the number of times false information was discovered in airport screening.

Chap 14-79 Leverage

Chap 14-80 Leverage (cont.) Notice how the point marked with the x changes the regression slope quite a bit:

Chap 14-81 Leverage (cont.) The leverage of a particular case can take on any value between 0.0 and 1.0. The closer the leverage of a case is to 1.0, the more impact that case has on the regression line. Note that a point with zero leverage has no effect on the regression model other than being used in calculations for the model.

Chap 14-82 Leverage (cont.) A case can have leverage in two ways: It might be extraordinary in one or more individual variables. It might be extraordinary in a combination of variables. There are no tests to decide if the leverage of a case is too large. You can, however, make a histogram of the leverages and give special attention to those cases with leverage values that stand out.
