you can just subtract 4.3 from the independent variable and then do
through zero. That will
Give you a force through 4.3. I don't undersarand the second part of
your statement.

Subject: [R] Forcing the intercept

Dear R-users:

I am doing multiple regressions using the "lm" function and would like
to force the intercept to be equal to a specific value (such as 4.3).  I
was able to find out how to force it through the origin but this does
not work for other values. 

I am also interested in forcing the regression parameters obtained from
one regression in another regression with a subset of the data.

Are either of these possible in R?  I have been searching the help guide
for hours and have been unsuccessful.

Many thanks,
