About

The programme

Regression Analysis is perhaps the single most important Business Statistics tool used in the industry. Regression is the engine behind a multitude of data analytics applications used for many forms of forecasting and prediction.  

This is the fourth course in the specialization, "Business Statistics and Analysis". The course  introduces you to the very important tool known as Linear Regression. You will learn to apply various procedures such as dummy variable regressions, transforming variables, and interaction effects. All these are introduced and explained using easy to understand examples in Microsoft Excel.

The focus of the Linear Regression for Business Statistics Course offered by Coursera in partnership with Rice University is on understanding and application, rather than detailed mathematical derivations.
