I do preprocess the data i.e. Second, is there a way to quickly produce a p-value related to the slope of a linear trend (something alluded to by the first post here).

Note that the categories are not numerical, and a trend between discrete categories may be meaningless (e.g., Cat, Dog, Ferret, Goldfish). Once I changed to an XY it matched my LINEST calcs exactly. These points are covered in the article, so check the details and see where you can improve. Not the answer you're looking for?

These lines fit all but the last point nearly perfectly. If there is a follow up post a chart of this may shed more light. LikeLike Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...

Uday Kumar says: Sunday, May 1, 2011 at 12:31 pm Hello Jon, Sorry for the confusion created. The nth Chebyshev Polynomial (of the first kind) is defined by T[n](x) = cos(n*acos(x)) (|x|<1). Jeff Perreault says: Wednesday, November 3, 2010 at 8:29 pm Jon, I'm using the LINEST function to extract the terms of a 3rd order poly using the method you've described, but Using five days to forecast an entire month is a bit iffy, since you haven't taken into account different sales by day of week (e.g., on weekends) or on holidays.

Excel 2007 broke the trendline formula for many cases, inappropriately changing coefficients within a certain range to zero due to an overzealous rounding error correction algorithm. Figure 2 â€“ Quadratic regression output The Adjusted R Square value of 95% and p-value (Significance F) close to 0 shows that the model is a good fit for the data. In other words -- even though there seemed to be a negative slope when you eyeballed the data -- mathematically (with the amount of data and the amount of noise in Works fine; I didn't get it the first time I saw the code, but now after your reply, I got it!

Applying a Trendline Adding a trendline is straightforward. this gives the constant.

As a check note that for given x and y values: =mmult(linest(y,(x-average(x))^{1,2}),iferror(combin({2;1;0},{2,1,0})*(-average(x))^({2;1;0}-{2,1,0}),0)) equals linest(y,x^{1,2}) but mitigates collinearity problems.

Now my problem is to estimate the error my new values produced by the fitted polynomial. You can calculate the t-statistics for LINEST coefficients from the LINEST output table, and you can get p-values from these. You can use the Index function to return any value from an array, the same as if it was a range, so: =INDEX(LINEST(Y_3,LN(X_3)),2) will return the b value.

Thus, the polynomial regression y = b*x^2+a might yield a better model (e.g. When I compare polynomial coefficients, they too are significantly skewed, its almost as if MS Excel smooths the data, or performs some other optimization that I can not account for in I have created a spreadsheet with examples of each trendline type, which may be downloaded here: Linest-poly.xls The functions used for linear and polynomial trendlines are shown in the screenshot below You can right click the trendline, choose Format, and make it much more presentable.

That makes sense! Excel will put brackets around the formula if it is entered correctly: {=LINEST(LN(Yrange),LN(Xrange),,TRUE)} The top left cell of the result is the exponent M, the top right cell is the coefficient Alternatively, you can use the new Real Statistics ROOTS function. Not generally wise, especially using a polynomial fit.

If you want to use linear regression then you are essentially viewing y = ax^3 + bx^2 + cx + d as a multiple linear regression model, where x^3, x^2 and If you'd like to achieve 5th degree polynomial fit then you'd have to write it ^{1,2,3,4,5}.hit it with CTRL+Shift+Enter, then you get the results of all the regression constants. I used Linest, Excel chart trendline fitting, and the Alglib PolynomialFit routine.

Jeff's X values ranged over a number of minutes, that is, a small fraction of a day. XY Charts I described differences between XY and Line charts. For 6th order: 6th order polynomials The LinestÂ and chart trend line results are now completely different, with LinestÂ having returned a coefficient of 0 for the x term.Â The ALGLIB results appear Turns out -- no-one had checked the significance of that coeffcient at all.
