## Multiple Regression (Part 3) Diagnostics

In the exercises below we cover some more material on multiple regression diagnostics in R. This includes added variable (partial-regression) plots, component+residual (partial-residual) plots, CERES plots, VIF values, tests for heteroscedasticity (nonconstant variance), tests for Normality, and a test for autocorrelation of residuals. These are perhaps not as common as what we have seen in […]
