**Linear Regression Analysis**

In this field the basic methods to carry out regression analysis are studied. The emphasis is on data that are characterised by many variables. The focus is on finding good latent structure that generates the response variables. The latent structure is generated in a way that optimises the prediction aspect of the model. Extensive graphic procedures illustrate the inherent variation of data.
