There has got to be severe problems with co-linearity which will invalidate the all possible regressions. Before even attempting to do this the number of independent variables needs to be pared down big time. One approach, though time consuming would to be drop the variable with the lowest t-value and continue until all variables in the model are significant. Secondly, the R-squared is going to be high just from the number of independent variables. If you want to use an R-squared, use the adjusted R-squared. Bottom line: A lot more homework needs to be done before even attempting to do a all possible regressions on this model. The co-linearity along is going to destroy any reliability. +------------------------------------------+ | Chris Strickland | | http://www.teg.saic.com/mote/people.html | | strickla@js-jtf.af.mil | +------------------------------------------+ ```
