Regression Inference

Topic Review on "Title":

Some Definitions

  • Regression: X, the independent variable, the explanatory variable or the predictor variable. Y, the dependent variable, the response variable or the predicted variable. Given X, we will be able to predict Y.
  • Deterministic Model: y = a + bx
  • Probabilistic Model: y = a + bx+ e , where e ~N(0,s2)

Least Square Estimators



  • SST=the total variation in the experiment.
  • SSR (sum of squares for regression): measures the variation explained by regression model.
  • SSE (sum of squares for error): measures the variation not explained by x.






Test Statistics

 (Mean Squares)










n - 2






n -1




F Test

  • F test shall be used to test whether the regression model fit well or not. If the model fit well, the test statistics F will be large. (This test is equivalent to t-test for t2 = F)
  • H0: The regression model fits well.
  • Ha: The regression model does not fit well.
  • Reject H0 if F>Fa,1,n-2
  • a is the probability of a type I error

T test and Confidence level

Text Box: H0: β = 0.   Ha: β ≠0.

"Title" Tutorial Summary :

This tutorial specifically describes the regression inference. In statistics, we frequently measure two or more variables on the same experimental unit. We do this to explore the nature of the relationship among these variables.  Regression inference is to use knowledge of independent variable(s) to predict dependent variable.

By completing this course, you will learn about the regression inference including regression models and least square method, the analysis of variance (ANOVA), testing regression model, assumptions and estimation and prediction

Tutorial Features:

Specific Tutorial Features:

  • Animated examples showing the operation of least square method is presented in the tutorial.
  • Step by step analysis of ANOVA is presented and served as a base for the subsequent hypothesis testing for the regression model.

Series Features:

  • Concept map showing inter-connections of new concepts in this tutorial and those previously introduced.
  • Definition slides introduce terms as they are needed.
  • Visual representation of concepts
  • Animated examples—worked out step by step
  • A concise summary is given at the conclusion of the tutorial.

"Title" Topic List:
  • Regression Models and Least Square Method
  • The Analysis of Variance (ANOVA)
  • Testing Regression Model (F test, t test and confidence interval)
  • Assumptions
  • Estimation and Prediction
