Mallows' Cp
Orlaith Burke
Philippe Rocca-Serra
Mallows' Cp is a data item which compares the precision and bias of the full model to models with a subset of the predictors thus helping to choose between multiple regression models.
the mallows cp is a function of the number of parameter used in the model relying on the residuals sum of squares to compute a score.
the smaller Cp is, the better the model fit is.
