# Methods and formulas for Predict for Stability Study for random batches

Select the method or formula of your choice.

## Fitted value and SE fit for random batch

The fitted value is the predicted y or , which is the mean response value for the given predictor values using the estimated regression equation.

The standard error of the fitted values in the mixed model are the square roots of the diagonal elements of the matrix that follows:
where

### Notation

TermDescription
Zin x mi martix of known codings for the ith random effect in the model
Z'transpose of Z
yresponse data
Xdesign matrix, including the constant variance component of the ith random factor variance component for error
Inidentity matrix with n rows and columns

## Prediction interval

The range in which the predicted response for a new observation is expected to fall. The calculation of the prediction interval depends on whether you compute the interval for the marginal fit or for the conditional fit.

### Marginal fit

where

The degrees of freedom for the t-statistic are given by this formula:

where

### Conditional fit

where

The degrees of freedom for the t-statistic are:

where

### Notation

TermDescription 1–α/2 quantile from the t distribution with the given degrees of freedom vector of the new values of the random predictors variance component for error vector of new values of the fixed predictors variance component of the ith random factor
Im identity matrix with m rows and columns
mnumber of columns in the design matrix to represent the ith random term in the model
c number of random effects in the model
Zin x mi design matrix for the ith random effect in the model
Z'itranspose of Zi

## Confidence interval

The range in which the estimated mean response for a given set of predictor values is expected to fall.

The standard error of the fitted values in the mixed model are the square roots of the diagonal elements of this matrix:

where

The degrees of freedom use this formula when batch is a random factor:

where
