This assumption allows estimates to be adjusted using available information. For example, in a study of education and income, the subje ...

The criteria for the addition of adulterants are that these should be miscible with and cheaper than biodiesel. The common adulterants us ...

Multicollinearity

... • The easiest way to measure the extent of multicollinearity is simply to look at the matrix of correlations between the individual variables. • In cases of more than two explanatory variables we run the auxiliary regressions. If near linear dependency exists, the auxiliary regression will display a ...

# Interaction (statistics)

In statistics, an interaction may arise when considering the relationship among three or more variables, and describes a situation in which the simultaneous influence of two variables on a third is not additive. Most commonly, interactions are considered in the context of regression analyses.The presence of interactions can have important implications for the interpretation of statistical models. If two variables of interest interact, the relationship between each of the interacting variables and a third ""dependent variable"" depends on the value of the other interacting variable. In practice, this makes it more difficult to predict the consequences of changing the value of a variable, particularly if the variables it interacts with are hard to measure or difficult to control.The notion of ""interaction"" is closely related to that of ""moderation"" that is common in social and health science research: the interaction between an explanatory variable and an environmental variable suggests that the effect of the explanatory variable has been moderated or modified by the environmental variable.
