Title:

I am doing a linear regression between two independent variables in order to find out the R-square. This is how I am doing it:

yes? Let P=var_1

yes? Let Q=var_2

yes? Go regresst

yes? show var

yes? fill rsquare

But when filling the R-square (and I also list some values to test) I realized that some values are greater than 1!!!!!!!! Isn’t it R-square the coefficient of determination? If so it should be 0<R^2<1, what I am doing wrong???

Thanks

Ana
