Thanks Nic,
you are right, in my case, residuals I think should be normally distributed and i am happy with it but when I run the ovtest, it does not reject the null hypothesis, that means, something is wrong with the transformations or interactions within the model, not sure if i really need to pass the ovtest. I did not see lots of papers reported ovtest results anyway.





kind regards
Ozgur

How can i find a complete list of activities to be done during a regression / step by step journey ? it seems,  i am finding something new everyday. thanks in advance.
