When is it important to use adjusted R-squared instead of R-squared?
R², the the Coefficient of Determination, is one of the most useful and intuitive statistics we have in linear regression.
It tells you how well the model predicts the outcome and has some nice properties. But it also has one big drawback.
Ratios are everywhere in statistics—coefficient of variation, hazard ratio, odds ratio, the list goes on. You see them reported in the literature and in your output.
You comment on them in your reports. You even (kinda) understand them. Or, maybe, not quite?
