regression analysis
Statistics. a procedure for determining a relationship between a dependent variable, as predicted success in college, and an independent variable, as a score on a scholastic aptitude test, for a given population. The relationship is expressed as an equation for a line (regressionline) or curve (regressioncurve) in which any coefficient (regression coefficient) of the independent variable in the equation has been determined from a sample population.
