Multiple Regression - Computational Approach

Select the Quick tab of the Multiple Regression Results dialog box to access options to review the most common results of a multiple regression analysis. Additional results are available on the remaining two tabs: Advanced and Residuals/assumptions/prediction.

Summary: Regression results. Click the Summary: Regression results button to display two spreadsheets. The Summary Statistics spreadsheet displays the summary statistics for the regression analysis (e.g., R, R-square, etc.). These values will be identical to the values displayed in the Summary box of the Multiple Regression Results dialog box (see the Multiple Regression Results dialog box topic for a detailed description of the statistics that are displayed).

The Regression Summary for Dependent Variable spreadsheet displays the standardized (b*) and non-standardized (b) regression coefficients (weights), their standard error, and statistical significance. The b* coefficients are the coefficients you would have obtained had you first standardized all of your variables to a mean of 0 and a standard deviation of 1. Thus, the magnitude of these b* coefficients allow you to compare the relative contribution of each independent variable in the prediction of the dependent variable. The summary statistics for the regression analysis (e.g., R, R-square, etc.) will also be displayed in the headers of this spreadsheet.
