# Why is the coefficient of determination important?

Coefficient of determination is symbolized by r2 because it is square of the coefficient of correlation symbolized by r. The coefficient of determination is an important tool in determining the degree of linear-correlation of variables ('goodness of fit') in regression analysis.

Also asked, what does the coefficient of determination indicate?

R-squared is a statistical measure of how close the data are to the fitted regression line. It is also known as the coefficient of determination, or the coefficient of multiple determination for multiple regression. 0% indicates that the model explains none of the variability of the response data around its mean.

What is the symbol of the coefficient of determination?

Coefficient of Determination. The coefficient of determination (denoted by R2) is a key output of regression analysis. It is interpreted as the proportion of the variance in the dependent variable that is predictable from the independent variable.

What is the value of the coefficient of determination?

The closer the value is to one, the better the fit, or relationship, between the two factors. The coefficient of determination is the square of the correlation coefficient, also known as "R," which allows it to display the degree of linear correlation between two variables.
