# Abstraction for Statistical Models

This package defines an abstract type `StatisticalModel`

, and an abstract subtype `RegressionModel`

.

Particularly, instances of `StatisticalModel`

implement the following methods.

`StatsBase.adjr2`

— Function```
adjr2(obj::StatisticalModel)
adjr²(obj::StatisticalModel)
```

Adjusted coefficient of determination (adjusted R-squared).

For linear models, the adjusted R² is defined as $1 - (1 - (1-R^2)(n-1)/(n-p))$, with $R^2$ the coefficient of determination, $n$ the number of observations, and $p$ the number of coefficients (including the intercept). This definition is generally known as the Wherry Formula I.

```
adjr2(obj::StatisticalModel, variant::Symbol)
adjr²(obj::StatisticalModel, variant::Symbol)
```

Adjusted pseudo-coefficient of determination (adjusted pseudo R-squared).

For nonlinear models, one of the several pseudo R² definitions must be chosen via `variant`

. The only currently supported variant is `:MacFadden`

, defined as $1 - (\log (L) - k)/\log (L0)$. In this formula, $L$ is the likelihood of the model, $L0$ that of the null model (the model including only the intercept), and $k$ is the number of consumed degrees of freedom of the model (as returned by `dof`

).

`StatsBase.aic`

— Function`aic(obj::StatisticalModel)`

Akaike's Information Criterion, defined as $-2 \log L + 2k$, with $L$ the likelihood of the model, and `k`

its number of consumed degrees of freedom (as returned by `dof`

).

`StatsBase.aicc`

— Function`aicc(obj::StatisticalModel)`

Corrected Akaike's Information Criterion for small sample sizes (Hurvich and Tsai 1989), defined as $-2 \log L + 2k + 2k(k-1)/(n-k-1)$, with $L$ the likelihood of the model, $k$ its number of consumed degrees of freedom (as returned by `dof`

), and $n$ the number of observations (as returned by `nobs`

).

`StatsBase.bic`

— Function`bic(obj::StatisticalModel)`

Bayesian Information Criterion, defined as $-2 \log L + k \log n$, with $L$ the likelihood of the model, $k$ its number of consumed degrees of freedom (as returned by `dof`

), and $n$ the number of observations (as returned by `nobs`

).

Compute confidence intervals for coefficients, with confidence level `level`

(by default 95%).

`StatsBase.deviance`

— Function`deviance(obj::StatisticalModel)`

For a linear model, the R² is defined as $ESS/TSS$, with $ESS$ the explained sum of squares and $TSS$ the total sum of squares.

```
r2(obj::StatisticalModel, variant::Symbol)
r²(obj::StatisticalModel, variant::Symbol)
```

Pseudo-coefficient of determination (pseudo R-squared).

For nonlinear models, one of several pseudo R² definitions must be chosen via `variant`

. Supported variants are:

`:MacFadden`

(a.k.a. likelihood ratio index), defined as $1 - \log (L)/\log (L_0)$;`:CoxSnell`

, defined as $1 - (L_0/L)^{2/n}$;`:Nagelkerke`

, defined as $(1 - (L_0/L)^{2/n})/(1 - L_0^{2/n})$.

In the above formulas, $L$ is the likelihood of the model, $L_0$ is the likelihood of the null model (the model with only an intercept), $n$ is the number of observations, $y_i$ are the responses, $\hat{y}_i$ are fitted values and $\bar{y}$ is the average response.

Cox and Snell's R² should match the classical R² for linear models.
