Procedures for finding the mathematical function which best describes the relationship between a dependent variable and one or more independent variables. In linear regression (see LINEAR MODELS) the relationship is constrained to be a straight line and LEAST-SQUARES ANALYSIS is used to determine the best fit. In logistic regression (see LOGISTIC MODELS) the dependent variable is qualitative rather than continuously variable and LIKELIHOOD FUNCTIONS are used to find the best relationship. In multiple regression, the dependent variable is considered to depend on more than a single independent variable

Here are entered works on statistics as a branch of learning, as well as works consisting of general statistical data not limited to a specific place or topic, and works on the discipline of statistics. For the latter the heading may be subdivided by place. Works of statistical data on a specific place or topic are entered under the place or topic with the subdivision Statistics --subdivision Statistics under names of countries, cities, etc., individual corporate bodies, classes of persons, ethnic groups, and topics, and phrase headings for certain types of statistics, e.g. Criminal statistics
