Abstract

By entering the data (-yi, -xi) followed by (-yi-xi), one can obtain an intercept-free regression Y = Xβ + ε from a program package that normally uses an intercept term. There is no bias in the resultant regression coefficients, but a minor postanalysis adjustment is needed to the residual variance and standard errors.
