regression analysis

(in statistics) a test in which the size of one variable (the dependent variable) is dependent on another (the independent variable). Often the relationship is a linear one, enabling a line of best fit to be drawn on a SCATTER DIAGRAM.

Different specification was made in OLS regression equation in which dependent variable is current GPA and the independent variables were randomly used.
The GWR technique is a direct extension of OLS regression, and in contrast to traditional global regression, it allows varying coefficients for the environmental predictors at different locations.
For the OLS regression model, we found that two coefficients changed from insignificant (p > .05) in the unweighted estimates (i) to significant (P <.

In the Heckman two-step model, the first step consists of a Probit regression for the selection function as shown in equation (3) below; the second step is an OLS regression, as shown in equation (4).
Second, a simple OLS regression is conducted to see whether teams improve their goal difference (goals scored minus goals conceded), as opposed to points obtained, when firing the coach.
Another advantage of quantile regression over OLS regression is that the quantile regression estimates are more robust against outliers in the response measurements, which gives it an edge when handling heteroskedasticity, skewness, and leptokurtosis in financial data.
