With fixed predictors, the standard method (Cohen, Cohen, West, & Aiken, 2003, p. 86; Harris, 2001, p. 80; Hays, 1994, p. 709) for computing confidence intervals (CIs) for standardized regression coefficients fails to account for the sampling variability of the criterion standard deviation. With random predictors, this method also fails to account for the sampling variability of the predictor standard deviations. Nevertheless, under some conditions the standard method will produce CIs with…

The coverage probability of a large-sample confidence interval for the semipartial correlation coefficient derived from Aloe and Becker was highly accurate and robust in 98% of instances, and was better in small samples than the Yuan-Chan large- sample confidence intervals for a standardized regression coefficient.

Simple and flexible Bayesian inferences for standardized regression coefficients

Simulation studies show that Bayesian credible intervals constructed by the approaches have comparable and even better statistical properties than their frequentist counterparts, particularly in the presence of collinearity.

Some Improvements in Confidence Intervals for Standardized Regression Coefficients

Yuan and Chan (Psychometrika 76:670–690, 2011. doi:10.1007/S11336-011-9224-6) derived consistent confidence intervals for standardized regression coefficients under fixed and random score

Some Improvements in Confidence Intervals for Standardized Regression Coefficients

Seven different heteroscedastic-consistent estimators were investigated in the current study as potentially better solutions for constructing confidence intervals on standardized regression coefficients under non-normality, and the HC5 estimator was more robust in a restricted set of conditions over the HC3 estimator.

Standardized Regression Coefficients and Newly Proposed Estimators for [Formula: see text] in Multiply Imputed Data.

Simulations show that the proposed pooled standardized coefficient estimates are less biased than two earlier proposed pooled estimates, and that their 95% confidence intervals produce coverage close to the theoretical 95%.

The Normal-Theory and Asymptotic Distribution-Free (ADF) Covariance Matrix of Standardized Regression Coefficients: Theoretical Extensions and Finite Sample Behavior

It is shown that the asymptotic distribution-free (ADF) method for computing the covariance matrix of standardized regression coefficients works well with nonnormal data in moderate-to-large samples using both simulated and real-data examples.

The Normal-Theory and Asymptotic Distribution-Free (ADF) Covariance Matrix of Standardized Regression Coefficients: Theoretical Extensions and Finite Sample Behavior

Yuan and Chan (Psychometrika, 76, 670–690, 2011) recently showed how to compute the covariance matrix of standardized regression coefficients from covariances. In this paper, we describe a method for

Standardized Regression Coefficients and Newly Proposed Estimators for $${R}^{{2}}$$R2 in Multiply Imputed Data

Whenever statistical analyses are applied to multiply imputed datasets, specific formulas are needed to combine the results into one overall analysis, also called combination rules. In the context of

DIY bootstrapping: Getting the nonparametric bootstrap confidence interval in SPSS for any statistics or function of statistics (when this bootstrapping is appropriate).

Researchers can generate bootstrap confidence intervals for some statistics in SPSS using the BOOTSTRAP command. However, this command can only be applied to selected procedures, and only to selected

On the Relationship Between Confidence Sets and Exchangeable Weights in Multiple Linear Regression

A general framework describing how CSs and the set of EWs for regression weights are estimated from the likelihood-based and Wald-type approach is introduced, and the analytical relationship betweenCSs and sets ofEWs is established.

Several articles in the field of psychology have shown simulation results with the bootstrap-percentile method and variants for the (Pearson) correlation coefficient. The overall result was that with

Biases and Standard Errors of Standardized Regression Coefficients

Monte Carlo results imply that, for both standardized and unstandardized sample regression coefficients, SE estimates based on asymptotics tend to under-predict the empirical ones at smaller sample sizes.

The authors suggest that the OI is preferable in alpha control to parametric approaches if the researcher believes the population is nonnormal and wishes to test for nonzero rhos of moderate size.

Abstract The BCa bootstrap procedure (Efron 1987) for constructing parametric and nonparametric confidence intervals is considered. Like the bootstrap, this procedure can be applied to complicated

Sample size for multiple regression: obtaining regression coefficients that are accurate, not simply significant.

An approach to sample size planning for multiple regression is presented that emphasizes accuracy in parameter estimation (AIPE) by providing necessary sample sizes in order for the likely widths of confidence intervals to be sufficiently narrow.

Methods for assessing all possible criteria and subsets of criteria for regression models with a fixed set of predictors, x (where x is an n×1 vector of independent variables), and geometrical notions can be easily extended to assess the sampling performance of alternate regression weights in models with either fixed or random predictors and for models with any value of R2.
