Hi , I have to compare the following (nested/ hierarchical?) models in order to test whether the variables included in second model significantly increase the goodness of fit. 1) Y = α0 + α1 BV + α2NI + ε 2) Y = ß0 + ß1 BV + ß2 NI + ß3 TANG + ε My questions are the following: I. It's not clear to me the difference between nested and hierarchical regressions. Is defined hierarchical a regression in which I simply add new variables ? If it so, my models (1-2) should be hierarchical. Conversely, is nested model a regression in which I decompose the components of a variable? For example, if I add a third model, in which TANG is decomposed in TANG1 TANG2 TANG3. 3) Y = g0 + g1 BV + g2 NI + g3 TANG1+ g4 TANG2+ g5TANG3+ ε II. In order to test whether the goodness of fit of 2 model significantly increases, I employ the following test, found in econometric textbook (considering model 2 = full model): Δ R2/ Δdf = F (Δ R2 , df full) (1- R2full)/df full Is it correct ?? Can you give me some specific reference on this test ? III. In Cox's book "A gentle introduction to Stata" page 216, test of semipartial correlation of variables is performed by pcorr2. Even if the author suggests to install it with findit pcorr2, I am not able to find the program anywhere. Can anybody suggest how can I install it ??? Thanks so much.
