Adjusted r-squared, Advanced Statistics

R-squared is regarded as the coefficient of determination and is used to give the proportion of the fluctuation of the variance of one variable to another variable. R-squared also establishes the percentage of data that is near to goodness of fit. 

S = 0.0903972   R-Sq = 26.3%   R-Sq(adj) = 26.1%

In this case R-squared is 26.3%; this indicates that there is a variation in Y (Wfood) in relation to the linear relationship between the Y and X variables.  The remaining percentage (73.7%) is the variation which is unknown.

The adjusted R-squared figure of 26.1% is a more accurate measure of the goodness of fit and as it is lower than r-squared and it indicates that certain explanatory variables are missing therefore the fluctuation of the dependent variable is not fully measured.
