2. ### Sufficient linearity between predictor and response variables?

Hello everyone, for a multiple regression I am currently trying to understand if there is sufficient linearity between my predictor and response variables to see whether I can carry on with a regular linear regression. I have three models, with one dependent and the same three...
3. ### Dummy Variable for repeated categories for the same observation

Hello I am running a Random Forest and Decision Tree model and need to convert my categories into dummy variables since Python and its libraries are not able to hand categorical string data. Please refer to the attached Table: Of course I have other people in my dataset aswell and because of...
4. ### Dummy variables in fixed effects models

I am doing a research on factors influencing firm performance, So I am fitting a fixed-effect modelling approach in R using 3-year panel data, with a total of 193 firms, these firms are grouped into 4 different sizes (Medium, Small, Very Small and Micro depending on thier annual sales levels). I...
5. ### Too many dummy variables in Regression

we have about 50000 models of mobile phone (like Galaxy S7, iPhone 9) in database and the size of data is about 3 million. We want to find the mobile phones that have the least call success rate ( the numbers of successful call divided by total call). We want to run a Regression model to find...

Genders are Male & Female Entrepreneur is given by dummy entrepreneur (1) Income is based in 16 groups (0-10k; 10k-20k; 20k-30k etcetera)? How can I approach this with an OLS method and for what should I test (correlation, homoskewdasticy etcetera)? I know that there are other factors and I...
7. ### Dummy variables and their interaction (urgent help required)

Dear All, I have a question concerning the dummy and dummy interactions. Firm Performance is a continuous variable (variable of interest) and firms which offers different plans are categories as follows: Plan 1, Plan 2 and Plan 3 are dummy plans (reference category, zero plans). While...
8. ### Using a dummy variable to model threshold effects

Hi All, I'm new to this thread and very green/inexperienced in using regressions. I'm trying to model threshold effects in a time series analysis - for instance, does an output hike of 5% or greater lead to a different effect on returns than when the output change is less than 5%. Given that I...
9. ### Logistic regression in SPSS

I have designed a question and now intend to use SPSS to run regression to analyse the results: My dependent variable is: intention to vote. Yes or No. My independent variables are: a series of question ranked on a scale from strongly disagree to strongly agree. I want to test whether the...

13. ### A question about whether dropping interaction terms as a whole or not

Hello! I'm taking a regression course this semester and I have a question regarding when to drop the interaction terms. Suppose we have a regression model like this: Y = a + b1*X1 + b2*X2 + b3*X3 + b4*X1_X3 + b5*X2_X3 where Y is the response variable (say, the outcome of a disease), X1 and...

I have two easy, but for me at this point rather devastating, questions I was hoping for one kind hearted or bright individual,or two, to reply on. I'm doing a study with data from a national representative population study. The design is cross-sectional. I've run into serious troubles with...
17. ### Multivariate timeseries regression - use of a dummy variable between two time periods

Dear stat people I am doing an analysis on how the relation between Y and three explanatory variables change from one time period to the next. I guess using a dummy is an appropriate way to do this? I divide the time period into two subperiods, with monthly observation for 1990-2000 and...
18. ### Box cox - nonparametric?

Hi, I have a major problem with the SPSS analysis I would like to conduct... Please, if anyone has an idea - its very much appreciated ;) Some background information: The plan was to do a multiple regression analysis with four independent variables and one dummy variable (capturing a...

Hi. I need help. I'm writing a proposal and am not a statistician and am having trouble translating the notes from my professor into an equation. He said, after running my OLS twice, I will "test whether the estimated coefficient (beta) on the dummy variable for CCMI is statistically...
20. ### ask: no aid dummy in panel data using stata

Dear all, I would like to ask the utilization of dummy variable in stata. Well, here is my model y=beta1 lnx1(1,x1)+beta2 nox1+beta3 lnx2 (1,x2)+beta4 nox2 so basically x1 and x2 are type of aid which given to countries. it is panel data 6 years long with 20 countries. i use the model...
