Re: Extracting information from lm results

Dunbar, Michael J.
Hi Stephen

You should be able to find what you need either using str(lm1) or str(summary(lm1)). With the possible exception of the overall P value, which you can get from the F statistic and the degrees of freedom using the pf function. For the coefficients, its considered slightly better form to use coef(lm1)[x] rather than lm1$coefficients[x], simply because there is the coef extractor function provided.

Dear all,

I suspect that this might be a bit basic, but here goes anyway...

I am soon to run a large number of linear regressions and I would like to extract a number of details from the models, and then collate them in a dataframe as a summary of the overall block of analyses. I can successfully extract the intercept and slope by using, for example:


However, I also would like to extract the following too:

1) the number of data points in the analysis, n
2) the standard error of the slope
3) the P value
4) the R-squared value

Is it possible to extract these parameters in the same way as the slope and intercept, to save a lot of typing?

Any help much appreciated!
