Dear R-users,
I am using the R-function "linearHypothesis" to test if the sum of all
parameters, but the intercept, in a multiple linear regression is different
from zero.
I wonder if it is statistically valid to use the linearHypothesis-function
for this?
Below is a reproducible example in R. A multiple regression: y =
beta0*t0+beta1*t1+beta2*t2+beta3*t3+beta4*t4
It seems to me that the linearHypothesis function does the calculation as
an F-test on the extra residuals when going from the starting model to a
'subset' model, although all variables in the 'subset' model differ from
the variables in the starting model.
I normally think of a subset model as a model built on the same input data
as the starting model but one variable.
Hence, is this a valid calculation?
Thanks in advance,Johan
