Say I'm given a bunch of models on the same set of data how does one determine whether a valid comparison can be made between any two of them using an F Test?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is it that the estimation space of one has to be a subset of the other? Is there any easier, more practical way of determining this?

Thanks
