# Re: [ferret_users] R-square problem

Title: R-square problem
 Hi Ana, Yes, the values of rsquare should be between 0 and 1.   If you look at the result of    yes? STAT rsquare are the values really larger than 1?  I wonder if the automatically chosen color fill levels in the FILL command are making the color bar extend higher than 1 even though the values of the data field are not actually larger than 1. Another possibility is that the accuracy of numeric calculations is putting values slightly larger than 1.  Here too the STAT command might tell us more.

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
