Calculates a measure for the goodness of fit (e.g., LLF, AIC, R^2, etc.).

## Syntax

**MLR_GOF **(**X**, Mask, **Y**, Intercept, Return)

**X**- is the independent (explanatory) variables data matrix, so each column represents one variable.
**Mask**- is the boolean array to choose the explanatory variables in the model. If missing, all variables in X are included.
**Y**- is the response or the dependent variable data array (a one-dimensional array of cells (e.g., rows or columns)).
**Intercept**- is the constant or the intercept value to fix (e.g., zero). If missing, an intercept will not be fixed and is computed typically.
**Return**- is a switch to select a fitness measure (1 = R-Square (default), 2 = Adjusted R Square, 3 = RMSE, 4 = LLF, 5 = AIC, 6 = BIC/SIC).
Value **Return**1 R-square (coefficient of determination) ( **default**).2 Adjusted R-square. 3 Regression error (RMSE). 4 Log-likelihood (LLF). 5 Akaike-information criterion (AIC). 6 Schwartz/Bayesian information criterion (SBIC).

## Remarks

- The underlying model is described here.
- The coefficient of determination, denoted $R^2$, measures how well the model replicates observed outcomes. $$R^2 = \frac{\mathrm{SSR}} {\mathrm{SST}} = 1 - \frac{\mathrm{SSE}} {\mathrm{SST}}$$
- The adjusted R-square (denoted $\bar R^2$) is an attempt to take account of the phenomenon of the $R^2$ automatically and spuriously increasing when extra explanatory variables are added to the model. The $\bar R^2$ adjusts for the number of explanatory terms in a model relative to the number of data points. $$\bar R^2 = {1-(1-R^{2}){N-1 \over N-p-1}} = {R^{2}-(1-R^{2}){p \over N-p-1}} = 1 - \frac{\mathrm{SSE}/(N-p-1)}{\mathrm{SST}/(N-1)}$$ Where:
- $p$ is the number of explanatory variables in the model.
- $N$ is the number of observations in the sample.

- The regression error is defined as the square root for the mean square error (RMSE): $$\mathrm{RMSE} = \sqrt{\frac{SSE}{N-p-1}}$$
- The log-likelihood of the regression is given as $$\mathrm{LLF}=-\frac{N}{2}\left(1+\ln(2\pi)+\ln\left(\frac{\mathrm{SSR}}{N} \right ) \right )$$ The Akaike and Schwarz/Bayesian information criteria are given as: $$\mathrm{AIC}=-\frac{2\mathrm{LLF}}{N}+\frac{2(p+1)}{N}$$ $$\mathrm{BIC} = \mathrm{SIC}=-\frac{2\mathrm{LLF}}{N}+\frac{(p+1)\times\ln(p+1)}{N}$$
- The sample data may include data points with missing values.
- Each column in the input matrix corresponds to a separate variable.
- Each row in the input matrix corresponds to an observation.
- Observations (i.e., rows) with missing values in X or Y are removed.
- The number of rows of the response variable (Y) must equal the number of rows of the explanatory variable (X).
- The MLR_GOF function is available starting with version 1.60 APACHE.
