In quantreg if you do
item 4 is:
4. [R^2] "I am currently trying to caculate the coefficient of determination for
different quantile regression models. For example, how do you calculate
the the sum of the weighted absolute deviations in the models ..."
R-squared is evil, that is why there isn't an automated way to compute
something similar for quantile regression in the quantreg package.
But if you insist use:
R1 <- 1 - f1$rho/f0$rho
Provided that f0 is nested within f1 and the taus are the same, 0 <= R1 <= 1.
If you want to test f1 vs f0 then use anova(f1,f0)
