Values of pH and electrical conductivity and concentrations of aluminum (Al), calcium (Ca), nickel (Ni), iron (Fe) and zinc (Zn) metals and sulfate (SO4 2-), nitrate (NO3-) and chloride (Cl-) ions in the particulate matter were taken as dependent variables
, while the values of pH and electrical conductivity and concentrations of metals and ions mentioned above in the inert matter/waste were taken as independent variables.
Using the same methodology described above, but replacing the dependent variable
, net outlays, with net cost of operations, once again the most suitable independent variable is the POM (w/OCO) position.
886) statistic indicate the degree of explained variation of dependent variable
Regression between the independent variables (quality of service) and the dependent variable
(behavior change) showed that there was a significant inverse correlation between these two variables.
Brunnschweiler (2009) uses logarithm of growth rate as a dependent variable
while her resource measure is not in growth terms.
The method of multiple regression is generalized through the theory of the "general linear model", in which there are more dependent variables
simultaneously, as well as variables that are not independent from a linear point of view.
The dependent variables
were university students enrolled to reflect the reasons for which students select a business school/institution for Business Education and the top four universities selected by these students to identify the significant factors as the main reasons student go to these top universities.
Why Lagged Dependent Variables
Can Suppress the Explanatory Power of Other Independent Variables.
Similarly, the kinetic-order sensitivities, defined as the ratio of percentage change in a dependent variable
or dependent flux to an infinitesimal percentage change in a kinetic order parameter, are written as:
3 provides a variety of measures assessing the success of the model in predicting the dependent variable
Then, we read horizontally from the line of best fit to the y-axis to see the expected value for the dependent variable
(follow the dotted line in Figure 1).
The dependent variable
in the first three columns of Table 3 is a fatal or incapacitating injury.
