## Statistics; correlations for a subset of a timeseries of points?

I have a time series of data - number of "detections" per hour, over time. Each of these points also has two attributes associated with it, x and y. I also have a second time series of data which I expect to correlate with that number of detections per hour, but only with detections within certain combinations of those x and y values. I want to find what range of x and y values has the best correlation.

## Toddler Won't Even Pick Up a Fork Anymore

My toddler (2 years old) has been regressing big time. She regressed on potty training a while back, but that's not what concerns me. Now she refuses to feed herself, she has stopped making verbal requests, she whispers instead of speaking aloud. I'm not asking why the regression, so much as how do I deal with it?

## 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?

## 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.

## 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.
