Introduction Least Square Estimates of the Parameters Inference about the Parameters Prediction Assessing Adequacy of Fit Correlation Multiple Regression What is Regression? A method by which a quantitative variable is predicted or its variation is explained by means of other quantitative variables. The variable being predicted or whose variation being explained is called the dependent, outcome or response variable. The variables that are used to make the perdition or explain the variation of the dependent variable are called independent or explanatory variables.

Introduction Least Square Estimates of the Parameters Inference about the Parameters Prediction Assessing Adequacy of Fit Correlation Multiple Regression Types of Regression Linear Regression: quantitative (interval or ratio scale) dependent variable Simple: one independent variable Multiple: two or more independent variables Logistic Regression: qualitative ( binary ) dependent variable (yes or no, absent or present, ...) Simple or Multiple Many others types of univariate regressions exist. Multivariate Regression: More than one dependent variable.

Introduction Least Square Estimates of the Parameters Inference about the Parameters Prediction Assessing Adequacy of Fit Correlation Multiple Regression Model for Simple Linear Regression For a given value of the independent variable x , y = β 0 + β 1 x + ε where ε is random variation assumed to be normally distributed with mean 0 and variance σ 2 ε . The random variations for different observations are assumed to be independent. The expected response for a given value of x is μ y | x = β 0 + β 1 x . β 0 is the intercept and β 1 is the slope of the regression line. The unknown quantities β 0 , β 1 and σ 2 ε are parameters to be estimated from the data. Chapter 11: Regression and Correlation Methods Stat 491: Biostatistics

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
