A type of analysis of data - linear regression is used to make predictions about a single value. Simple linear regression involves discovering the equation for a line that most nearly fits the given data. That linear equation is then used to predict values for the data.
the prediction equation which estimates the value of the outcome variable ("y") for any given treatment variable ("x").
A type of statistical analysis where a straight line or linear relationship characterizes the amount of change in a dependent variable which is associated with a unit change in the independent variable.
Regression in which the relationship is linear.
The best fit of sample data points to a linear model by minimizing the sum of the squares of deviations between the points and the line.
Fits a line to a scatter-plot in such a way as to minimize the sum of the squares of the residuals.
the relation between variables when the regression equation is linear: e.g., y = ax + b
a statistical method used to develop models that minimize the standard error of the estimate
Regression analysis that assumes a straight-line relationship between x and y.
A statistical technique for finding the best linear relationship between two numerical variables, x and y; the statistical evaluation of the significance of the estimated relationship is most reliable when y has a bell-shaped distribution (normal distribution)
See regression, assumes that the relationship between variables can be summarised by a straight line.
a statistical tool used for forecasting future price. The concept behind linear regression is to find the best estimate of the trend given a noisy sample of data points.
