ridge regression analysis

ridge regression analysis

[′rij ri′gresh·ən ə‚nal·ə·səs]
(statistics)
A form of regression analysis in which damping factors are added to the diagonal of the correlation matrix prior to inversion, a procedure which tends to orthogonalize interrelated variables; study of the robustness of the regression coefficients with changes in the damping factors is then used to determine sets of variables that should be removed. Also known as damped regression analysis.

A single formula with two different coefficients for both genders was formed using ridge regression analysis. The variables used in the formula are shown in Table 1.
Due to the multicollinearity problem, ridge regression analysis was preferred instead of multivariate linear regression for statistical evaluations to define a model to predict skeletal age based on C3_H and C4_H.
Ridge Regression Analysis: In ridge regression analysis, the cross-product matrix for the explanatory variables (scrotal circumference, scrotal length, testicular length, body length, withers height and heart girth) is centered and scaled to one on the diagonal elements.
Conclusion: With the aim of trying to get the best model, Stepwise Regression Analysis, use of Factor Analysis Scores with multiple regression model analysis, and Ridge Regression analysis were compared.
