based on the regression equation. If the standard error of estimate is zero, there is a perfect match between the observed and estimated values and, hence, it is a case of perfect correlation. A short-cut formula for the determination of the standard error of estimate is given by 2 2 Y a Y b XY n All factors, except 2 Y , have been computed earlier for estimating the values of a and b. Example - 5 In a study of how wheat yield depends on the fertilizer input, ten experimental plots were selected for study. The yields (Y) at different levels of fertilizer input (X) were observed as given table. Plot no. Fertilizer input (X), kg/acre Yield (Y) MT/acre Plot no.

MULTIPLE REGRESSION ANALYSIS In the simple regression analysis, we have used the coefficient of determination as a measure to determine the strength of the relationship of Y on X. It is quite natural for the researcher to generate more precise estimates, say, of wheat production, than obtained by the simple regression method. A logical step to do this is by including additional independent variables in the analysis. The regression analysis that uses more than one independent variable is termed as multiple regression analysis. There are very few new concepts in multiple regression analysis. Most of the analysis carried out in the simple regression analysis can be extended directly to the multiple regression analysis. For example, the concept of

### 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.
