can someone plz help me with this:

I just conducted a simple linear regression and my output looks like this: R^2 = .004, R^2adj = .004

Under ANOVA, the F* = 91.462, SIG = 0.000

Under Coefficients beside my independent variable, it gives me: Unstandardized = 0.112 , StdError = 0.012, T* = 9.564 , Sig = 0.000

I don't understand how can the tests be significant if the R^2 is so low? Since my test results are significant, that means I can conclude there is a relationship between the two variables right? Can someone please explain. thanks. -- View this message in context: Sent from the SPSSX Discussion mailing list archive at
