Linear regression

A statistical technique for fitting a straight line to a set of data points.

Linear Regression

A statistical technique in which one takes a set of data points and plots them on a line. Linear regression is used to determine trends in economic data. For example, one may take different figures of GDP growth over time and plot them on a line in order to determine whether the general trend is upward or downward.
