5. ### R^2 vs. significance of the the variables

Hello community :) I am currently working with paneldata to see if there is correlation between sustainability and performancce in the energy and materials sector of the S&P500. I ran the regression twice, one with the logarithm of MarketValue (=MarketValue.WINS.LOG) and one without...
6. ### Difference between simulating the dependent variable and simulating the error terms and adding them to the fitted values values assuming normality?

What's the statistical difference between simulating the dependent variable and simulating the error terms and adding them to the fitted values values assuming normality (gaussian GLM)? Say I'm doing a simple multiple regression on the following data (R): n <- 40 x1 <- rnorm(n, mean=3, sd=1)...
