English name for this index - Least Squares Method

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 13:53:58 GMTHi all,

I was wondering what is the English name for the index I_2, used to evaluate the goodness of the fit:

I_2= SQRT[ SUM(Y_i-y_i)^2/N]/SUM(Y_i)/N,

where

Y_i is the ith value of the variable to be predicted and y_i=m*X_i+q is the predicted value of Y_i. N is the number of points (Y_i, X_i).

Many Thanks,
hannibal

There are 8 continuous predictor variable and
My dependent variable is:
not used
slightly used
highly used

Is it ordinal or nominal?
Can I use multi-nominal regression in my case?
I am confused when i code my dependent variable them as 1,2 and 3 (kind of low,medium and high which gives me a feeling as if the order matters but when I say not used, slightly used and highly used it seems order does not matter.

Can anybody help?

thank you
