Here is the function that I wrote for doing simple linear regression, as alluded to in my blog post about simple linear regression on log-transformed data on the decay of DDT concentration in trout in Lake Michigan. My goal was to replicate the 4 columns of the output from applying summary() to the output of lm().
To use this file and this script,
1) I saved this file as “simple linear regression.r”.
2) In the same folder, I saved a script called “DDT trout regression.r” that used this function to implement simple linear regression on the log-transformed DDT data.
4) I made sure “DDT trout regression.r” used the source() function to call my user-defined function for simple linear regression.
5) I ran “DDT trout regression.r”.
