Regression and correlation focuses on how variables correlate. Often one or several variables are defined as dependent meaning that they are believed to alter when the value of other independent variables change. There are different types of regression :

  • Simple regression: One dependent and one independent variable
  • Multivariable regression = multiple regression: More than one independent variable
  • Multivariate regression: More than one dependent variable
  • Multivariate multivariable regression: More than one dependent variable as well as more than one independent variable.

This can be expanded:
