CompactLinearModel

Compact linear regression model

Description

CompactLinearModel is a compact version of a full linear regression model object LinearModel. Because a compact model does not store the input data used to fit the model or information related to the fitting process, a CompactLinearModel object consumes less memory than a LinearModel object. You can still use a compact model to predict responses using new input data, but some LinearModel object functions do not work with a compact model.

Creation

Create a CompactLinearModel model from a full, trained LinearModel model by using compact.

Coefficient Estimates

This property is read-only.

Covariance matrix of coefficient estimates, specified as a p-by-p matrix of numeric values. p is the number of coefficients in the fitted model.

For details, see Coefficient Standard Errors and Confidence Intervals.

Data Types: single | double

This property is read-only.

Coefficient names, specified as a cell array of character vectors, each containing the name of the corresponding term.

Data Types: cell

This property is read-only.

Coefficient values, specified as a table. Coefficients contains one row for each coefficient and these columns:

  • Estimate — Estimated coefficient value

  • SE — Standard error of the estimate

  • tStatt-statistic for a test that the coefficient is zero

  • pValuep-value for the t-statistic

Use anova (only for a linear regression model) or coefTest to perform other tests on the coefficients. Use coefCI to find the confidence intervals of the coefficient estimates.

To obtain any of these columns as a vector, index into the property using dot notation. For example, obtain the estimated coefficient vector in the model mdl:

beta = mdl.Coefficients.Estimate

Data Types: table

This property is read-only.

Number of model coefficients, specified as a positive integer. NumCoefficients includes coefficients that are set to zero when the model terms are rank deficient.

Data Types: double

This property is read-only.

Number of estimated coefficients in the model, specified as a positive integer. NumEstimatedCoefficients does not include coefficients that are set to zero when the model terms are rank deficient. NumEstimatedCoefficients is the degrees of freedom for regression.

Data Types: double

Summary Statistics

This property is read-only.

Degrees of freedom for the error (residuals), equal to the number of observations minus the number of estimated coefficients, specified as a positive integer.

Data Types: double

This property is read-only.

Loglikelihood of response values, specified as a numeric value, based on the assumption that each response value follows a normal distribution. The mean of the normal distribution is the fitted (predicted) response value, and the variance is the MSE.

Data Types: single | double

This property is read-only.

Criterion for model comparison, specified as a structure with these fields:

  • AIC — Akaike information criterion. AIC = –2*logL + 2*m, where logL is the loglikelihood and m is the number of estimated parameters.

  • AICc — Akaike information criterion corrected for the sample size. AICc = AIC + (2*m*(m+1))/(n–m–1), where n is the number of observations.

  • BIC — Bayesian information criterion. BIC = –2*logL + m*log(n).

  • CAIC — Consistent Akaike information criterion. CAIC = –2*logL + m*(log(n)+1).

Information criteria are model selection tools that you can use to compare multiple models fit to the same data. These criteria are likelihood-based measures of model fit that include a penalty for complexity (specifically, the number of parameters). Different information criteria are distinguished by the form of the penalty.

When you compare multiple models, the model with the lowest information criterion value is the best-fitting model. The best-fitting model can vary depending on the criterion used for model comparison.

To obtain any of the criterion values as a scalar, index into the property using dot notation. For example, obtain the AIC value aic in the model mdl:

aic = mdl.ModelCriterion.AIC

Data Types: struct

This property is read-only.

Mean squared error (residuals), specified as a numeric value.

MSE = SSE / DFE,

where MSE is the mean squared error, SSE is the sum of squared errors, and DFE is the degrees of freedom.

Data Types: single | double

This property is read-only.

Root mean squared error (residuals), specified as a numeric value.

RMSE = sqrt(MSE),

where RMSE is the root mean squared error and MSE is the mean squared error.

Data Types: single | double

This property is read-only.

R-squared value for the model, specified as a structure with two fields:

  • Ordinary — Ordinary (unadjusted) R-squared

  • Adjusted — R-squared adjusted for the number of coefficients

The R-squared value is the proportion of the total sum of squares explained by the model. The ordinary R-squared value relates to the SSR and SST properties:

Rsquared = SSR/SST = 1 – SSE/SST,

where SST is the total sum of squares, SSE is the sum of squared errors, and SSR is the regression sum of squares.

For details, see Coefficient of Determination (R-Squared).

To obtain either of these values as a scalar, index into the property using dot notation. For example, obtain the adjusted R-squared value in the model mdl:

r2 = mdl.Rsquared.Adjusted

Data Types: struct

This property is read-only.

Sum of squared errors (residuals), specified as a numeric value.

The Pythagorean theorem implies

SST = SSE + SSR,

where SST is the total sum of squares, SSE is the sum of squared errors, and SSR is the regression sum of squares.

Data Types: single | double

This property is read-only.

Regression sum of squares, specified as a numeric value. The regression sum of squares is equal to the sum of squared deviations of the fitted values from their mean.

The Pythagorean theorem implies

SST = SSE + SSR,

where SST is the total sum of squares, SSE is the sum of squared errors, and SSR is the regression sum of squares.

Data Types: single | double

This property is read-only.

Total sum of squares, specified as a numeric value. The total sum of squares is equal to the sum of squared deviations of the response vector y from the mean(y).

The Pythagorean theorem implies

SST = SSE + SSR,

where SST is the total sum of squares, SSE is the sum of squared errors, and SSR is the regression sum of squares.
