This is the fourth workshop in a 6-part statistics series.

NOTE: Due to the large # of statistical software available, this session will not be about any specific software but, rather, the methodology behind the software.

Model the relationship between two quantitative variables by regression or correlation analysis. We expand the regression model to include additional predictor variables, including other quantitative variables (multiple regression) and categorical variables (ANCOVA) and discuss the importance of checking the model assumptions.
