Linear regression modeling is an extremely powerful data analysis tool, useful for a variety of inferential tasks such as prediction, parameter estimation and data description. In this section we give a very brief introduction to the linear regression model and the corresponding Bayesian approach to estimation. Additionally, we discuss the relationship between Bayesian and ordinary least squares regression estimates.
