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
.

pbyp matrix of numeric values. p

Data Types: cell
Coefficients
— Coefficient values
table
This property is readonly.
Coefficient values, specified as a table.
Coefficients
contains one row for each coefficient and these
columns:
Estimate
— Estimated coefficient valueSE
— Standard error of the estimatetStat
— tstatistic for a twosided test with the null hypothesis that the coefficient is zeropValue
— pvalue for the tstatistic
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

the model terms are rank deficient.

does not include coefficients that are
set to zero when the model terms are rank deficient.

Summary Statistics

— Degrees of freedom for error
positive integer

Data Types: double
LogLikelihood
— Loglikelihood
numeric value
This property is readonly.
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
ModelCriterion
— Criterion for model comparison
structure
This property is readonly.
Criterion for model comparison, specified as a structure with these fields:
AIC
— Akaike information criterion.AIC = –2*logL + 2*m
, wherelogL
is the loglikelihood andm
is the number of estimated parameters.AICc
— Akaike information criterion corrected for the sample size.AICc = AIC + (2*m*(m + 1))/(n – m – 1)
, wheren
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 likelihoodbased 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 bestfitting model. The bestfitting 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

RMSE = sqrt(MSE),
where RMSE is the root mean squared error and MSE is the mean squared error.
Data Types: single

Rsquared
— Rsquared value for model
structure
This property is readonly.
Rsquared value for the model, specified as a structure with two fields:
Ordinary
— Ordinary (unadjusted) RsquaredAdjusted
— Rsquared adjusted for the number of coefficients
The Rsquared value is the proportion of the total sum of squares explained by the
model. The ordinary Rsquared value relates to the SSR
and
SST
properties:
Rsquared = SSR/SST
,
where SST
is the total sum of squares, and
SSR
is the regression sum of squares.
For details, see Coefficient of Determination (RSquared).
To obtain either of these values as a scalar, index into the property using dot
notation. For example, obtain the adjusted Rsquared value in the model
mdl
:
r2 = mdl.Rsquared.Adjusted
Data Types: struct
SSE
— Sum of squared errors
numeric value
This property is readonly.
Sum of squared errors (residuals), specified as a numeric value. If the model was
trained with observation weights, the sum of squares in the SSE
calculation is the weighted sum of squares.
For a linear model with an intercept, 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.
For more information on the calculation of SST
for a robust
linear model, see SST
.
Data Types: single
 double
SSR
— Regression sum of squares
numeric value
This property is readonly.
Regression sum of squares, specified as a numeric value.
SSR
is equal to the sum of the squared deviations between the fitted
values and the mean of the response. If the model was trained with observation weights, the
sum of squares in the SSR
calculation is the weighted sum of
squares.
For a linear model with an intercept, 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.
For more information on the calculation of SST
for a robust linear
model, see SST
.
Data Types: single
 double
SST
— Total sum of squares
numeric value
This property is readonly.
Total sum of squares, specified as a numeric value. SST
is equal
to the sum of squared deviations of the response vector y
from the
mean(y)
. If the model was trained with observation weights, the
sum of squares in the SST
calculation is the weighted sum of
squares.
For a linear model with an intercept, 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.
For a robust linear model, SST
is not calculated as the sum of
squared deviations of the response vector y
from the
mean(y)
. It is calculated as SST = SSE +
SSR
.
