PartialSumOfSquares

PartialSumOfSquares
is a possible value for the RegressionReport to Regress and DesignedRegress which represents the change in the model sum of squares as nonconstant basis functions are removed.
  • PartialSumOfSquares is useful for trimming a large set of predictors.
  • Basis functions yielding a small value for the partial sum of squares have less influence on the fit.
