RsqDist
The distribution of R squared (as obtained in a regression analysis)
These functions use the beta distribution to provide the R Squared distribution.
 Keywords

Usage
dRsq(x, nPredictors, sampleSize, populationRsq = 0)
pRsq(q, nPredictors, sampleSize, populationRsq = 0, lower.tail = TRUE)
qRsq(p, nPredictors, sampleSize, populationRsq = 0, lower.tail = TRUE)
rRsq(n, nPredictors, sampleSize, populationRsq = 0)
Arguments
 x, q
 Vector of quantiles, or, in other words, the value(s) of R Squared.
 p
 Vector of probabilites (pvalues).
 nPredictors
 The number of predictors.
 sampleSize
 The sample size.
 n
 The number of R Squared values to generate.
 populationRsq

The value of R Squared in the population; this determines the center of the R Squared distribution. This has not been implemented yet in this version of
userfriendlyscience
. If anybody knows how to do this and lets me know, I'll happily integrate this of course.  lower.tail
 logical; if TRUE (default), probabilities are the likelihood of finding an R Squared smaller than the specified value; otherwise, the likelihood of finding an R Squared larger than the specified value.
Details
The functions use convert.omegasq.to.f
and convert.f.to.omegasq
to provide the Omega Squared distribution.
Value
dRsq
gives the density, pRsq
gives the distribution function, qRsq
gives the quantile function, and rRsq
generates random deviates.Note
These functions are based on the Stack Exchange (Cross Validated) post at http://stats.stackexchange.com/questions/130069/whatisthedistributionofr2inlinearregressionunderthenullhypothesis. Thus, the credits go to Alecos Papadopoulos, who provided the answer that was used to write these functions.
