Dependent variable

Term used in regression analysis to represent the element or condition that is dependent on values of one or more other independent variables.

Dependent Variable

In technical analysis, a variable whose value is determined by the value of other variable(s), but plays no part in determining the value of those other variable(s). For example, if a product's price is determined by some equation involving the product's supply and its demand, the price is the dependent variable because the price does not affect the supply or demand.

dependent variable

A variable affected by another variable or by a certain event. For example, because a stock's price is affected by dividend payments, earnings projections, interest rates, and many other things, stock price is a dependent variable. Compare independent variable.

dependent variable

a variable that is affected by some other variable in a model. For example, the demand for a product (the dependent variable) will be influenced by its price (the INDEPENDENT VARIABLE). It is conventional to place the dependent variable on the left-hand side of an EQUATION. See DEMAND FUNCTION, SUPPLY FUNCTION.
