A Derivation of the Sample Multiple Correlation Formula for Raw Scores.
O'Brien, Francis J., Jr.
This paper, a derivation of the multiple correlation formula for unstandardized (raw) scores, is the fourth in a series of publications. The purpose of these papers is to provide supplementary reading for students of applied statistics. The intended audience is social science graduate and advanced undergraduate students familiar with applied statistics. The minimum background for most of the existing and forthcoming papers is knowledge of applied statistics through rudimentary analysis of variance, and multiple correlation and regression analysis. The unique feature of this set of papers is detailed proofs and derivations of important formulas and derivations which are not readily available in textbooks, journal articles, and other similar sources. Each proof or derivation is presented in a clear, detailed and consistent fashion. When necessary, a review of relevant algebra is provided. Calculus is not used or assumed. This series seeks to address the needs of students to see a full, comprehensible statement of a mathematical argument. (PN)
