What is Regression?

Regression, in relation to data analysis and statistics, is a process for analyzing the relationship between dependent and independent variables. Regression analysis models are used to predict the impact on the dependent variable of various changes in the independent variables. Types of regression include simple regression, multiple regression, linear regression, multivariate regression, polynomial regression and logistic regression.

Online Regression Courses and Programs

Get started in regression analysis with one the following courses or programs.

Georgia Tech offers an excellent introductory course, Statistical Modeling and Regression Analysis, that covers the basics of linear regression, generalized linear regression and multiple linear regression. Students will use R software to implement statistical regression models on real data sets and gain fundamental skills for interpreting results. The 14-week course is free to audit and also offers a verified certificate option for a small fee.

Regression analysis plays a big role in machine learning as it helps software extract statistically relevant patterns from collected data. In Robotics: Vision Intelligence and Machine Learning, a self-paced online course from the University of Pennsylvania, students will understand how data classification, regression and clustering helps machines learn from and respond to new environments. This course is part of an advanced MicroMasters program in Robotics.
