### Sequential sums of squares

… or … extra sums of squares

Sequential sums of squares: what are they?

• The reduction in the error sum of squares when one or more predictor variables are added to the regression model.

• Or, the increase in the regression sum of squares when one or more predictor variables are added to the regression model.

• They can be used to test whether one slope parameter is 0.

• They can be used to test whether a subset (more than two, but less than all) of the slope parameters are 0.

• Sample of n = 38 college students

• Response (Y): intelligence based on the PIQ (performance) scores from the (revised) Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale.

• Predictor (X1): Brain size based on MRI scans (given as count/10,000)

• Predictor (X2): Height in inches

• Predictor (X3): Weight in pounds

Sequential sums of squares: definition using SSE notation

• SSR(X2|X1) = SSE(X1) - SSE(X1,X2)

• In general, you subtract the error sum of squares due to all of the predictors both left and right of the bar from the error sum of squares due to the predictor to the right of the bar.

• SSR(X2,X3|X1) = SSE(X1) - SSE(X1,X2,X3)

Sequential sums of squares: definition using SSR notation

• SSR(X2|X1) = SSR(X1,X2) – SSR(X1)

• In general, you subtract the regression sum of squares due to the predictor to the right of the bar from the regression sum of squares due to all of the predictors both left and right of the bar.

• SSR(X2,X3|X1) = SSR(X1,X2,X3)-SSR(X1)

In multiple regression, there is more than one way to decompose the regression sum of squares. For example:

A sequential sum of squares involving one extra predictor variable has one degree of freedom associated with it:

A sequential sum of squares involving two extra predictor variables has two degrees of freedom associated with it:

Degrees of freedom and regression mean squares

• The SSR is automatically decomposed into one-degree-of-freedom sequential sums of squares, in the order in which the predictor variables are entered into the model.

• To get sequential sum of squares involving two or more predictor variables, sum the appropriate one-degree-of-freedom sequential sums of squares.
