Multiple Regression Model y = + 1 x 1 + 2 x 2 +. . . + p x p + , 1 , 2 , . . . , p are the parameters, and is a random variable called the error term Spring 2011 Dr. Kameli a Petrova School of Business and Economics SUNY Plattsburgh Slide 4 A simple random sample is used to compute sample statistics b , b 1 , b 2 , . . . , b p that are used as the point estimators of the parameters , 1 , 2 , . . . , p . Estimated Multiple Regression Equation ^ y = b + b 1 x 1 + b 2 x 2 + . . . + b p x p The estimated multiple regression equation is: Spring 2011 Dr. Kameli a Petrova School of Business and Economics SUNY Plattsburgh Slide 5 Least Squares Method s Least Squares Criterion 2 min ( ) i i y y- Computation of Coefficient Values The formulas for the regression coefficients b , b 1 , b 2 , . . . b p involve the use of matrix algebra. We will rely on computer software packages to perform the calculations.
