Regression analysis is usually applied to prediction and forecasting with substantial overlap with the field of machine learning. The relationship between the dependent and independent variables is determined through regression and to explore different forms of these relationships. In certain circumstances where the assumptions are restricted regression helps to infer a casual relationship. However, caution is advised as this can lead to illusions.
