In almost any study, there is the task of predicting or explaining the behavior of a particular variable. In most cases such research is possible through the analysis of a relationship of this variable with some others. Such interactions are not pre-determined and are of a random nature. A mathematical model of such relationship becomes one of the most important tools of study. Construction, examination and use of such a model are subjects of the regression analysis.
