ols( endog, exog )

What's the endog, exog?

Please see:


ols use ordinary least square(OLS) method to estimate linear model and return a modelobject.

model object attribute is vrey like to statsmodels result object attribute (nobs,coef,...).

The following example is compared by statsmodels. They take same result exactly.

	var A=[[1,2,3],
	var b=[1,-2,3,4,-5,6,7,-8,9];
	var model=jStat.models.ols(b,A);

// coefficient estimated
model.coef // -> [0.662197222856431, 0.5855663255775336, 0.013512111085743017]

	// R2
model.R2 // -> 0.309

	// t test P-value
model.t.p // -> [0.8377444317889267, 0.15296736158442314, 0.9909627983826583]

	// f test P-value
	model.f.pvalue // -> 0.3306363671859872

The adjusted R^2 provided by jStat is the formula variously called the 'Wherry Formula', 'Ezekiel Formula', 'Wherry/McNemar Formula', or the 'Cohen/Cohen Formula', and is the same as the adjusted R^2 value provided by R's summary.lm method on a linear model.
