Functions that return the PRESS statistic (predictive residual sum of squares) and predictive r-squared for a linear model (class lm) in R
# Example usage for model_fit_stats.R
# Set up some data
x <- seq(from=0, to=10, by=0.5)
y1 <- 2*x + rnorm(length(x))
# We want to compare two different linear models:
my.lm1 <- lm(y1 ~ sin(x))
my.lm2 <- lm(y1 ~ x)
# We will use plyr for this.
# Now call model_fit_stats() for each lm model that
# we have, using ldply. This returns the results in
# a data frame that is easily used for further
# calculations.
ldply(list(my.lm1, my.lm2), model_fit_stats)
# adply() also works, though it should be less robust
# than ldply().
#adply(list(my.lm1, my.lm2), 1, model_fit_stats)
#' @title Model Fit Statistics
#' @description Returns lm model fit statistics R-squared, adjucted R-squared,
#' predicted R-squared and PRESS.
#' Thanks to John Mount for his 6-June-2014 blog post, R style tip: prefer functions that return data frames" for
#' the idea \link{}
#' @return Returns a data frame with one row and a column for each statistic
#' @param linear.model A \code{lm()} model.

#' @title Predictive R-squared

Thanks for posting this, very helpful :)

You're welcome! I'm glad it's useful.

Love this! You totally save my group project!!!

in one result, the press r-square showed NA. what does that mean? does it have any relevance? it is a regression with interaction. the result of the regression was as follows.

R-squared: 0.141 Adjusted R-squared: 0.133 PRESS R-squared: NA
