1. What is Regression Analysis?

A technique for determining the statistical relationship between two or more variables where a change in a dependent variable is associated with, and depends on, a change in one or more independent variables. Regression analysis is a form of predictive modeling technique that investigates the relationship between a dependent (target) and independent variable(s) (predictor). This technique is used for forecasting, time series modeling and finding the causal effect relationship between the variables. For example, the impacts of weight and gender on height is best studied through regression.
