Multiple regression: what if beta > 1.0??

Postby lgrofils » Sun Aug 03, 2014 3:34 pm

Hello everybody,

I made a multiple regression with 6 IV and one DV. But the only significant IV has a beta = 1,004. Beta doesn't have to be < 1???? What does it mean and which extra analysis must I do???

Thank you very much!!!

A beta of 1.004 indicates that a change of one SD in the predictor wil result in a change of 1.004 SD in outcome.
this is perfectly possible.
