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.
