Linear Regression

Linear regression is a statistical process of constructing a model to explain the degree to which one variable's change (x) can be used to explain another variable's change (y). If the model fits the data well it can be used to predict values of y that can be expected based on values of x.

This video demonstrates building a linear regression model with Excel and explains key outputs that excel generates.
