( X , Y ), the regression function of Y on X shows how the conditional mean of Y changes with the observed value of X . More precisely, Definition The conditional expected value of Y given that X = x , i.e. Y | X ( x ) = E ( Y | X = x ) , when considered as a function of x , is called the regression function of Y on X .
