Glossary Term: REGRESSION
Definition(s) for REGRESSION:
1. ) refers to a a mathematical technique used to explain and/or predict. The general form is Y = a + bX + u, where Y is the variable that we are trying to predict; X is the variable that we are using to predict Y, a is the intercept; b is the slope, and u is the regression residual. The A and B are chosen in a way to minimize the squared sum of the residuals. The ability to fit or explain is measured by the Rsquare.
