# r.squared

##### R squared and adjusted R squared for panel models

This function computes R squared or adjusted R squared for plm objects. It allows to define on which transformation of the data the (adjusted) R squared is to be computed and which method for calculation is used.

- Keywords
- htest

##### Usage

`r.squared(object, model = NULL, type = c("cor", "rss", "ess"), dfcor = FALSE)`

##### Arguments

- object
an object of class

`"plm"`

,- model
on which transformation of the data the R-squared is to be computed. If

`NULL`

, the transformation used to estimate the model is also used for the computation of R squared,- type
indicates method which is used to compute R squared. One of

`"rss"`

(residual sum of squares),`"ess"`

(explained sum of squares), or`"cor"`

(coefficient of correlation between the fitted values and the response),- dfcor
if

`TRUE`

, the adjusted R squared is computed.

##### Value

A numerical value. The R squared or adjusted R squared of the model estimated on the transformed data, e. g. for the within model the so called "within R squared".

##### See Also

`plm()`

for estimation of various models;
`summary.plm()`

which makes use of `r.squared`

.

##### Examples

```
# NOT RUN {
data("Grunfeld", package = "plm")
p <- plm(inv ~ value + capital, data = Grunfeld, model = "pooling")
r.squared(p)
r.squared(p, dfcor = TRUE)
# }
```
