partial.R2 {asbio}R Documentation

Partial correlations of determination in multiple regression

Description

Calculates the partial correlation of determination for a variable of interest in a multiple regression.

Usage


partial.R2(nested.lm, ref.lm)

Arguments

nested.lm

A linear model without the variable of interest.

ref.lm

A linear model with the variable of interest.

Details

Coefficients of partial determination measure the proportional reduction in sums of squares after a variable of interest, X, is introduced into a model. We can see how this would be of interest in a multiple regression.

Value

The partial R^2 is returned.
