RsquareAdj: Adjusted R-square

RsquareAdjR Documentation

Adjusted R-square


The functions finds the adjusted R-square.


## Default S3 method:
RsquareAdj(x, n, m, ...)
## S3 method for class 'rda'
RsquareAdj(x, ...)
## S3 method for class 'cca'
RsquareAdj(x, permutations = 1000, ...)



Unadjusted R-squared or an object from which the terms for evaluation or adjusted R-squared can be found.

n, m

Number of observations and number of degrees of freedom in the fitted model.


Number of permutations to use when computing the adjusted R-squared for a cca. The permutations can be calculated in parallel by specifying the number of cores which is passed to permutest


Other arguments (ignored) except in the case of cca in which these arguments are passed to permutest.


The default method finds the adjusted R-squared from the unadjusted R-squared, number of observations, and number of degrees of freedom in the fitted model. The specific methods find this information from the fitted result object. There are specific methods for rda, cca, lm and glm. Adjusted, or even unadjusted, R-squared may not be available in some cases, and then the functions will return NA. There is no adjusted R-squared in partial ordination, and R-squared values are available only for gaussian models in glm.

The adjusted, R-squared of cca is computed using a permutation approach developed by Peres-Neto et al. (2006). By default 1000 permutations are used.


The functions return a list of items r.squared and adj.r.squared.
