  • The article is written in rather technical level, providing an overview of linear regression. Linear regression is based on the ordinary list squares technique, which is one possible approach to the statistical analysis. Both univariate and multivariate linear regression are illustrated on small concrete examples. In addition to the explanation of basic terms like explanatory and dependent variables, we will see how to interpret results obtained by a regression analysis.
