Abstract

In many regression studies, there is an ambition to compare the relative importance of different variables. One measure frequently used is standardized regression coefficients. The present article reveals an inconsistency in the definition of the standardized coefficients and demonstrates that if they were correctly defined, a comparison between standardized coefficients would be similar to comparing t values.
