I know that it is possible when you realize a multiple linear regression to calculate the confidence interval on the R-squared and on the adjusted R-squared. Does somebody know how to do it with R?

You probably can be served by the CI.Rsq function in the psychometric package. The equation is provided in the help. An alternative would be bootstrapping the CI.

  • $\begingroup$ I'm not sure recommendations for n > 60 for the CI are really any different from recommendations of n for the regression in the first place. Poor parameter estimates lead to poor CI estimates. That will be true regardless of how they are calculated. A more complex approach would be to bootstrap the model directly but there's not enough information in the question to help with that. $\endgroup$
