Multiple Regression: Multiple R

Multiple regression is the process of generating an equation using a combination of predictor variables to create an expected outcome. The equation appears as follows:

PredictedvalueofY=β1X1+β2X2+β3X3++βiXi.

The equation is true where the β represents the standardized coefficient for each variable X (this is in pairs so that each variable X has a separately estimated coefficient, β). The process involves the use of a combination of predictor variables (X) to estimate an outcome (the Y variable). This equation is considered a standard equation where the expression has been adjusted to remove the scale metric and does not use the raw weights (b). The prediction is based on the value using a z score estimate for each variable in the analysis (X and Y). Each coefficient used (βi) ...
