Regression equation with mean temperature as output variable

If you had a multivariate equation whose output variable is mean surface temperature on earth, what would be the rough beta value for distance from the sun (in millions of miles or whatever)?

WHY are you still awake? Sleep regression? Sneaking lattes?

*Baby filter* Our 11ish month old has had two super weird bedtimes ("happy happy party time!

Walk me through a multivariate regression

Stats filter. I am doing multivariate regression for the first time and I want to understand what I'm doing, having gone beyond my formal training. I have many possible ways I could formulate the regression (different variables to include) and I want to find a model that is both the best possible fit while using the fewest number of variables. How? [more inside]

Based on my eyes and a hunch I conclude these two variables are statistically different?

How can I test if one predictor variable in a regression is significantly better than another predictor variable? i.e. If I regress X against A I get an r^2 of .99 and when I regress X against B I get .98. I need a test to see whether this difference is statistically significant. [more inside]

Regression Coefficient Interpretation (OLS)

In an OLS regression the coefficient is b = cov(X,Y)/var(X). What is the plain english interpretation of this coefficient in terms of variations (ie. b is the variation in Y that can be explained by variation in X)? How does this relate to r^2?

Help me calculate a hidden value in my data

I've spent the past day or so trying to figure out how to calculate a hidden value in my data. It varies linearly with time, or closely enough that we can make that assumption within any given dataset. Where this goes beyond a simple linear regression is that each datapoint is known to be above or below the hidden value. The data is collected in a C# program and processed in Excel; an Excel function would be the ideal solution. [more inside]
