Details

Collinearities can inflate the variance of the estimated regression coefficients and numerical stability. The condition indices are calculated by the eigenvalues of the crossproduct matrix of the scaled but uncentered explanatory variables. Indices > 30 may indicate collinearity.

Value

A vector of the condition indices.
