Regression analysis. In statistics, regression analysis includes any techniques for modeling and analyzing several variables, when the focus is on the relationship between a dependent variable and one or more independent variables. Most commonly, regression analysis estimates the conditional expectation of the dependent variable given the independent variables. Therefore, the estimation target is a function of the independent variables called the regression function. Regression analysis is widely used for prediction and forecasting, where its use has substantial overlap with the field of machine learning.
