The Performance of the Modified Detection Method in the Presence of High Leverage Collinearity Enhancing Observations
Abdulkarim, K., Rasheed, B.A. and Lasisi, K.E.
The presence of outliers and multicollinearity are inevitable in real data sets and they have an unduly effect on the parameter estimation of multiple linear regression models. It is now evident that outliers in the X-direction or high leverage points are another source of multicollinearity...Read more
