What is Regression Analysis? A. Sample regression lines (SRLs) ? = 1 + 2 ? - ? : estimator of ? ? - 1 : estimator of 1- 2 : estimator of 2 ? = 1 + 2 ? + - (residual term): estimator of B. Summary: Our primary objective in regression analysis is to estimate the (stochastic) PRF on the basis of the SRF.
