For the final installment in this series on introductory statistics for the social sciences, Kyle T. begins discussing multiple regression, a statistical test and topic that can be subject to much more advanced investigation by those students who are interested in learning more about this subject. In short, multiple regression extends regression in a way similar to how factorial AnoVa extends AnoVa; multiple regression allows prediction based on a number of different, independent variables.
We hope that you’ve enjoyed this overview of statistics, geared for social-scientific students and research, this Spring. We’re excited now, leaving Memorial Weekend and entering June, to be transitioning into a new series, geared for premedical students, preparing for the MCAT this Summer. Stay tuned, eager minds; the Veritas video series will return anon!
