linear regression

Share This

“A data mining tool that is a classic statistical research method. Regression has a dependent variable and several independent variables and determines coefficients that fit the best line to the data points. The process estimates coefficients of the equation: Y = b0 + b1 X1 + b2 X2 + … + bkXk. In effect, the coefficients identify the strength of the variables in how they affect the dependent variable. The dependent variable must be continuous.”
