Multiple Regression Analysis

Principal Components and Factor Analysis

Click the Compute multiple regression analyses button on the Define Method of Factor Extraction dialog box - Descriptives tab to display the Multiple Regression Analysis dialog box, which contains three tabs: Quick, Advanced, and Descriptives.

Note that in addition to the options available via the Multiple Regression Analysis dialog box, STATISTICA includes designated multiple regression procedures: General Regression Models (GRM), Multiple Regression, and the Generalized Linear/Nonlinear Models (GLZ). All of these methods contain numerous additional options and extensive residual analysis facilities.

Summary box. The Summary box at the top of the dialog box displays a general summary of the current analysis.

Copy button. Click the Copy button to copy either the selected text (if text has been selected) in the Summary box or all of the text (if no text has been selected) to the Clipboard. Note that the copied text retains formatting information (such as font, color, etc.).

Contract/Expand button. Click the Contract/Expand button to contract or expand the Summary box. When contracted, you can see only one line of the Summary box text and can scroll through the text using a scroll bar. Note that when contracted the text is scrolled so that the first non-blank line is at the top. When expanded (the default setting), the entire Summary box will be displayed in the Multiple Regression Analysis dialog box.

Summary. Click the Summary button to display a spreadsheet with the analysis results. This button is only available after variables have been selected via the Multiple Regression Analysis dialog - Quick tab.

Cancel. Click the Cancel button to return to the Define Method of Factor Extraction dialog box.
