## Simple linear regression

A regression analysis between only two variables, one dependent and the other explanatory.

## Simple Linear Regression

In statistics, the analysis of variables that are dependent on only one other variable. Regression analysis uses regression equations, which shows the value of a dependent variable as a function of an independent variable. For example, a simple regression equation could take the form:

y = a + bx

where y is the dependent variable and x is the independent variable. In this case, the slope is equal to b and a is the intercept. When plotted on a graph, y is determined by the value of x. Regression equations are charted as a line and are important in calculating economic data and stock prices. See also: Multiple regression.
