Non-Linear Transformation of the Criterion.
McNeil, Keith; And Others
The utility of a non-linear transformation of the criterion is established. The Pythagorean Theorem is used as the example to demonstrate the point. The functional relationships may be such (as in the Pythagorean Theorem) that an R-squared of 1.00 cannot be found without making a non-linear transformation of the criterion. The goal of predictability (R-squared=1.00) thus may not be reached without making a non-linear transformation of the criterion. (Author/JKS)
