# SPSS Multiple regression watch

1. The task was to perform a multiple regression analysis for one dv and 3 ivs to see which one is the better fit for explaining the variance and predicting the dv. My question is, when I look at the r2 to get a percentage and proportion of the data, this equals over 100% between the 3?
Is this normal?
Thanks

Could you copy and paste the output (or screenshot). The total r^2 value is given in SPSS output and should be the sum of the IV r^2, and your right it shouldn't be above 100%
