As an R user, I wanted to also get up to speed on scikit.

Creating a linear regression model(s) is fine, but can't seem to find a reasonable way to get a standard summary of regression output.

Code example:

```# Linear Regression
import numpy as np
from sklearn import datasets
from sklearn.linear_model import LinearRegression

# Fit a linear regression model to the data
model = LinearRegression()
model.fit(dataset.data, dataset.target)
print(model)

# Make predictions
expected = dataset.target
predicted = model.predict(dataset.data)

# Summarize the fit of the model
mse = np.mean((predicted-expected)**2)
print model.intercept_, model.coef_, mse,
print(model.score(dataset.data, dataset.target))
```

Issues:

• seems like the intercept and coef are built into the model, and I just type print (second to last line) to see them.
• What about all the other standard regression output like R^2, adjusted R^2, p values, etc. If I read the examples correctly, seems like you have to write a function/equation for each of these and then print it.
• So, is there no standard summary output for lin. reg. models?
• Also, in my printed array of outputs of coefficients, there are no variable names associated with each of these? I just get the numeric array. Is there a way to print these where I get an output of the coefficients and the variable they go with?

My printed output:

```LinearRegression(copy_X=True, fit_intercept=True, normalize=False)
152.133484163 [ -10.01219782 -239.81908937  519.83978679  324.39042769 -792.18416163
476.74583782  101.04457032  177.06417623  751.27932109   67.62538639] 2859.69039877
0.517749425413
```

Notes: Started off with Linear, Ridge and Lasso. I have gone through the examples. Below is for the basic OLS. Mar 14 470 views

In sklearn, there is no R type regression summary report. The fundamental reason for this is because sklearn is used for predictive modeling and machine learning, and the assessment criteria are based on performance on previously unseen data (for example, prediction r2 for regression).

sklearn.metrics.classification report is a summary function for classification that calculates multiple types of (predictive) scores on a classification model.
