  • $\begingroup$ I want to understand you my question by giving example...suppose my lab value is my dependent variable and age is independent variable, and I got the R2 value 0.028 and P value 0.012.Now i don't understand how to interpret this R2 value? second thing I have the idea about the R2 value indicates how much of the dependent variable can be explained by the independent variable. Can you please brief me the interpretation.... $\endgroup$
