# [R] Accessing specific values of linear regression model

```You said you were fitting regression model, yet you used
summary(aov(model))?  It's rather unusual to use aov() for regression
models...

If you used lm() to fit the regression model, the following might help:

> y <- rnorm(10); x <- runif(10)
> fit <- lm(y ~ x)
> anova(fit)
Analysis of Variance Table

Response: y
Df Sum Sq Mean Sq F value Pr(>F)
x          1 1.2526  1.2526  1.6872 0.2302
Residuals  8 5.9397  0.7425
> str(anova(fit))
Classes anova  and `data.frame':        2 obs. of  5 variables:
\$ Df     : int  1 8
\$ Sum Sq : num  1.25 5.94
\$ Mean Sq: num  1.253 0.742
\$ F value: num  1.69   NA
\$ Pr(>F) : num  0.23   NA
- attr(*, "heading")= chr  "Analysis of Variance Table\n" "Response: y"
> anova(fit)["x", "Sum Sq"]
[1] 1.252643
