Dear Martin,

Great! Thank you! That helps a lot! One last question regarding this topic. Just looked at the code and wondered about one little thing. As I understood, dfbetas are calculated simply by dividing the difference between the two coefficient estimates with and without the observation by the standard deviation. Why would one inlcude another division by e(N)? 

@Nick: Fair enough! Thanks!
