## Introduction: Multiple Regression: SPSS (3.4)

Multiple regression estimates the coefficients of the linear equation when there is more than one independent variable that best predicts the value of the dependent variable. For example, a salespersonâ€™s total annual sales (the dependent variable) can be predicted based on independent variables such as age, education and years of experience. The linear equation for multiple regression is as follows:

Z = aX + bY + cÂ /Created by the ITS Training Program at CSULA for students.
