7In multiple regression, multiple regressionCoefficients replace the slope.8In multiple regression, each observed value will contain more than one predictor value.5Given the third observation of (5, 1, 4.5, 6, 9.1), there are 4explanatory values.4The formulas for multiple regression are typically complex.5In simple regression, a two-dimensional line predicts the response values.8Simplelinear regression cannot be used with more than two predictors.SummaryMultiple regression allows more than one factor in a correlation study. It is often the case that multiple factors are associated with a certain response variable. Simple regression only considers one independent variable. Multiple regression considers two or more independent variables and is usually too complex to perform without the use of a computer.Applications In Health Care and Criminal Justice IntroductionCorrelation and regression are abundant in the health care field. A correlation in medical research may not always result in definite causes, but each step counts. The same can be said for the criminal justice field.
