mdl object: put "F-statistic vs. constant model: ... , p-value = ..." into variable

8 views (last 30 days)
fitlm() displays, among other things, the F-statistic and p-value for the fit as a whole. I can't find these values in the mdl object, however. Could someone point me to how I can find, or calculate this value using the data in the mdl object?

Hello Evan, I think that you may be able to do it with coefTest(mdl), although this defaults to a horizontal line along the x-axis, so you might have to override the default with the average y-value, for instance.

Hi the question is for long time ago but maybe this answer helps others. Yes as Gusjammo said based on the help of Matlab this works:
[p,F] = coefTest(mdl)
However for me,this function gives NaN inspite of showing values of p , F by typing 'mdl'.

I'm not sure it is very well documented, but if you type
at the command line, you will see the list what is included in the model object.
The P-values are
and the F-stat is

It is curious though that anova seems to be a property of the mdl object, yet it's not listed when you call the function properties(mdl)... Typing "mdl." in the command line for me just returns an error: "Error: Expression or statement is incomplete or incorrect."

I misspoke when I said to enter "mdl." in the command window. What you should do is type "mdl." without hitting Enter, and then hit Tab to see the possible completions of that. Then you will see things like Coefficients, etc.
