Statistics - Multiple Regression

Ribbon bar. Select the Statistics tab. In the Base group, click Multiple Regression to display the Multiple Linear Regression Startup Panel.

Classic menus. On the Statistics menu, select Multiple Regression to display the Multiple Linear Regression Startup Panel.

The general purpose of multiple regression is to analyze the relationship between several independent or predictor variables and a dependent or criterion variable.

This module will perform least-squares multiple linear regression and compute detailed residual statistics. Methods for forward and backwards stepwise selection of predictor variables are also provided. Both intercept and non-intercept models can be evaluated, and different methods can be chosen for computing the overall ANOVA table and R-square statistic (for non-intercept models). STATISTICA will compute all standard multiple regression results statistics, and perform extensive residual analyses. Predicted values can also be computed for user-defined values of the predictors.
