Where does collinearity come from? …most often, correlated predictor variables Demo

Linear Model Assumptions Absence of Collinearity Normality of Errors Homoskedasticity of Errors No influential data points Independence

18
Normality of Error The error (not the data!) is assumed to be normally distributed So, the residuals should be normally distributed

19
xmdl = lm(y ~ x) hist(residuals(xmdl)) ✔

20
qqnorm(residuals(xmdl)) qqline(residuals(xmdl)) ✔

21
qqnorm(residuals(xmdl)) qqline(residuals(xmdl)) ✗

22
Linear Model Assumptions Absence of Collinearity Normality of Errors Homoskedasticity of Errors No influential data points Independence

23
Homoskedasticity of Error The error (not the data!) is assumed to have equal variance across the predicted values So, the residuals should have equal variance across the predicted values

28
WHAT TO IF NORMALITY/HOMOSKEDASTI CITY IS VIOLATED? Either: nothing + report the violation Or: report the violation + transformations

29
Two types of transformations Linear Transformations Nonlinear Transformations Leave shape of the distribution intact (centering, scaling) Do change the shape of the distribution

32
Before transformation

33
After transformation Still bad…. …. but better!! Still bad…. …. but better!!

Interpretational Problem: What’s the population for inference? Interpretational Problem: What’s the population for inference?

Violating the independence assumption makes the p-value… …meaningless
