Compares ordinary least squares regression with hierarchical linear modeling with random coefficients in testing the hypothesis of general slowing in language impairment (LI). Overall response time (RT) relation between LI and chronological-age-matched (CA) groups across studies; RT relation between LI and CA groups across language tasks; Data used to assess general slowing in LI.

    When a linear model which includes an intercept is estimated using ordinary least squares (OLS), a very useful summary statistic is the coefficient of determination, R. In that case, the R measure is restricted to the interval [0,1], and has a simple interpretation as the proportion...

    To most applied statisticians, a fitting procedure's degrees of freedom is synonymous with its model complexity, or its capacity for overfitting to data. In particular, the degrees of freedom is often used to parameterize the bias-variance trade-off in model selection. We argue that, on the...

    Age-period-cohort (APC) models have an intriguing appeal because each of these factors may be independently associated with age-period-specific rates (or other values). Unfortunately, one can not uniquely estimate the effects that generated the outcome data because these effects are linearly...
