Subject: regression question
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
I am conducting a stepwise regression with 4 predictor variables. The
correlation matrix indicates that there is at least one predictor which is
significantly correlated with Y. Why then would I get no significant results
in my stepwise? I assumed that the variable which shows a significant simple
correlation with Y would enter in the first step but it is not. Thoughts or
explanations? Thanks in advance
