Multiple Regression and Prediction
In this chapter we extend the simple linear regression model into the multiple linear regression model. Multiple regression is useful when we can expect more than one independent variable to influence the dependent variable. It allows us to explore the relationship between several independent and a single dependent variable. We also discuss multivariate regression which arises when we have several dependent variables dependent on the same (or some subset) independent variables.
